Not all devices have a NIC that can be replaced ;)
So I guess I would have to run both a 2.4 and 5Ghz next to each other to
solve that, 5Ghz is supported by my laptop which I want to get faster wifi
access, but it's not supported by my phone and Noxon 2 Audio which use
wireless as well. Those however do not need fast wireless.
Now to find a PCI wifi N nic that can be set as AP with both 2.4 and 5Ghz.

FYI, a Intel wifi 5100 agn mini pci-e card is 7 euro on ebay, the more
expensive faster 6200 agn is 17 euros on ebay, you could go the whammy for
the Intel 6300 which is a 3x3 card. Works well enough for laptops.
I only use the b/g ssid for my android phone, it's not fast, but so is the
phone. All the laptops just are easily upgraded.
I bought the dualband router from linksys because it had a deal at the time.
Might as well buy the cheapest dual band you can get, it doesn't need to
route or firewall anyway.
And don't argue about cost, if you are more happy to inflict pain on
yourself, go right ahead, I don't want to hear it :-)
