Also, dual band cards like this one don't work like your suggested formula, it can (and does) do 108Mbs on both bands. You can't connect to the signals simultaneously, it's either connect to the 802.11g @ 108Mbs or the 802.11a @ 108Mbs. I know this because I've the had matching dual band belkin router as well as a ZyXEL X-550 (current router) which only sends out an 802.11g signal
yes, my bad, it's coupling two G or A channels and uses some proprietary tech to achieve 108Mbps. I thought it was it first, then reading the manual of your card got me a little confused.
Workaround? You're surely not going to like mine and I hope for you somebody comes up with a better one.
Seeing the number of 108mbps adapters officially supported by vista and I cannot tell for sure if the supported ones reach 108Mbps as I never used one under vista, but I suppose they do. You're surely better off selling everything and going for a a pre-n draft router and wifi card, rather than looking around for drivers; unless Atheros, I'm not even bothering mentioning Belkin since they don't even officially support Vista, comes up with a compatible driver for your card that works with Windows 7 which let you use the full potential of your card by the time it's released.
The only officially supported adapters seems use a newer version of the Atheros wifi chip, though I only checked two.
