What Bands does the Xbox 360 S wifi support?

I just bought myself a Dual Band Router (2.4GHz B/G/N & 5GHz A/N). I have an old HDMI-less console using the original Wi-Fi adapter that supports A/B/G. I running on A right now and know there is another Dual Band Adpater that supports N as well (and my understanding is that it should also support A/B/G).

What about the built in wifi on the newer Xbox 360 S consoles? Do they also support Dual Band (A/B/G/N) or are they only Single Band (B/G/N)?

Thank you.

The 360 S only supports single band.  There is nothing to stop you using the 360 N wireless adapter accessory on the new S model though.

Ok, thank you for the replies. Thats good to know, had my console finally died *knocks on wood* and been beyond self-repair, I would have originally sold my Wi-Fi adapter knowing that the S models had built in wi-fi. Now that I know the built in wi-fi is single band, I'll keep my adapter in that scenario. It doesn't support N, but I'm not going to spend another $65 on amazon/newegg just for the faster N bandwith (54Mbps on A is more than enough for internet speeds). I would have been frustrated had I bought an S to discover it is single band since of my wireless devices, only my Xbox supports the 5GHz band, otherwise my router would have been a waste of money.

It kind of makes sense to include only single band on built in wifi to keep the costs down (although it wouldn't cost but a few more bucks for the extra band). Hopefully the Nextbox supports dual band A/B/G/N built in.
