WNDR4500 and Windows 8 and 5Ghz

In Windows 8 I can not see my 5ghz Wifi network! Only the 2.4ghz is visable... same problem with the consumer preview version that came out earlier this year! :mad: I was really hoping this had been fixed by now but no.... I have a Netgear WNDA4100 usb adapter for the 5ghz Wifi band and it works perfect in Win7 and Windows XP.

Is the problem with the drivers from Netgear or is this a Windows 8 issue?! This is really a big disappointment and I hope there will be a fix for this soon or a some other way to connect to the 5ghz network.
