    Default Belkin USB N Adapter + Ralink 1.3.0.0 = no 5Ghz option?

    First I want to thank everyone on this forum for all the postings which have
    been an incredible help for setting up my first hackint0sh. I'm just putting the
    final touches by adding the wireless N usb and I'm having an issue....

    I installed the Belkin F5D8053 on my hackint0sh along with the latest Ralink
    drivers directly from their website. It's works superbly except that I am *not*
    able to get it to go into 5Ghz mode. I have two (2) WLAN networks here, one
    for b/g (2.4Ghz) and another for n (5Ghz). I have no problems connecting to
    my AEBS that's serving b/g, but when I try to scan for my AEBS that's serving
    n it doesn't find it. Under the advanced tab on the USB Wireless Utility I see a
    pulling to set the Wireless Mode. The problem is that it's set to 2.4Ghz and is
    greyed out! I can not change it! All the settings everywhere else are available
    for change except that one. I'm thinking permissions problem but I would guess
    that I'd see a lot more options greyed out. Has anyone else seen this??

    Machine Specs
    ------------
    Gigabyte GA-G31M-ES2L
    Intel Quad Core Q9400
    2 x 2GB Corsair DDR2 800Mhz 4-4-4-12
    PNY 9800GT 512MB PCI-e
    Leopard 10.5.7 (installed with Boot132 + Retail 10.5.6)
    Belkin USB F5D8053 Wireless N Adapter

    Many Thanks In Advance!!
    :-)

    Update
    ------

    I returned the Belkin F5D8053 v3.0 USB Wireless N adapter and picked up a
    Linksys WUSB600N instead that uses the same chipset. This one works perfectly
    and connected immediately to my Airport Extreme Base Station at 5Ghz. Just
    stay away from the Belkin I guess!!

    Thanks
    :-)
