Intel produce the 5100 and 5300, both do a,b,g and n. Here's some info about the Intel Intel® Ultimate N WiFi Link 5300 and Intel® WiFi Link 5100 Products
Does anyone know of any netbooks with proper built in dual band radios (a,b,g,n), the only device I can find that seems to come close is the Dell Latitude 2100 (2x1), the information manufacturers provide about the WIFI cards in their devices is nothing short of shocking. Any pointers would be welcomed.
Thanks for this, the trouble is those cards need the antennas to be part of the netbook in order to function properly so it's more than just swapping a mini PCI card.
So far netbooks I can identify that have true dual band 802.11n 2.4/5ghz radios installed at the point of purchase are:-
RM ASUS Minibook (Asus don't appear to offer a model of the same spec direct)
RM Minibook (only offers a 3 and a 1/2 hour battery life)
Sony Vaio W
Dell Latitude 2100/2110
HP Mini 5102
As far as I am aware there are no other devices but I would be happily proved wrong!

I didn't see any real difference between the original 2 antenna and adding a third. (Although i was limited where i could fit it in my Dell Mini 9)
We are planning to deploy a large number of these devices and are looking to provide the maximum bandwidth possible to each device. At the same time we will be installing a new WIFI network so I am trying to make the two marry up as best as possible. When we start having full class sets all trying to access video I would expect the additional bandwidth and ability to connect to the greater number of channels 5ghz has to offer to become very important.
Yeah, we use a band here for all our student laptops and g for staff. Our newer laptops have n capability but we don't use it.
