    Really? Go figure. Guess I can't put 8 spark plugs in my 4 cylinder engine then.

    Is supposed to be dual-band adapter from what I find. I don't think it is simultaneous though, maybe it is, if not can only use one band at a time. Has be something missing in settings for router or the adapter from what I can tell.
