Garbage--doesn't work on 5mhz band5/29/2012
I just received my AU-5125 which I purchased from Sapido via Buy.com. I installed it using the drivers and utility that came on the CD accompanying the adapter. Now, however, while I am using it with a wireless router which uses both the 2.4mhz and 5mhz bands, I cannot see any channels on the 5mhz band and can't connect to them. When I look at the Status page in the utility software, I notice that the Channel Set reads as follows: "Japan_No_DFS. Does this mean that the adapter is set up for reading Japanese rather than US wireless channels?
