I have been researching USB wireless adapters and the dual band models sound interesting. ÂI'm wondering
though if this feature is wasted unless your router is dual band.

I think "dual band" does not refer to using two bands at once, but
rather the capability to use one of two different bands. A
"dual-band" radio can tune AM or FM at any given time, but can't tune
two stations at once. Dual band gives you flexibility .. you can
connect 802.11b at Starbucks and 802.11g at home.

Am I missing something?

Most of the newer ones support 802.11 B,G, and N.

EnGenius makes several like that.

Be aware of older USB ports that are "not" USB 2.0, which really cuts
down the
speed on wireless devices.
