If you read the wiki leak I posted, go down to the section under protocols, it will show you that the 802.11 protocol for N released in Oct 2009, operates on bandwidthes of 20mhz and 40mhz, for frequencys of 2.5ghz and 5ghz.
It adds MIMO(multiple in/multiple out) technology to make use of 2.4 or 5.
To me, it seems that a wireless N reciever will be able to connect to a 5ghz signal.
To be honest though, from what im reading it doesnt specifically state the difference between wireless N transmitters using MIMO for 2.4 and 5, and wireless N recievers being able to connect to both.
I have a USB adapter that can connect to 2.4 or 5, but i no longer have the box, i will look into the specs on my piece when i get home and tell you what i find. It is a wireless N adapter, it did say dual band on the box, but if it was special compared to other wireless n adapters, IDK.
