Can an 802.11g client establish a connection @ 5Ghz ? I havn't been able to
get my G client using anthing but 2.4Ghz

Is 5Ghz available entirely to 802.11n clients?

See http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/802.11g#Comparison_chart (which isn't
to say that devices *other* than wireless network equipment don't use
either the 2.4 GHz or 5.0 GHz bands; they do).

Hi
802.11g is by definition a 2.4GHz standard.
802.11a is the 5 GHz Standard.
Some (more expensive) Wireless Routers, and or, Wireless cards, can be Dual
802.11b/g/a
You always need a matching pair. I.a., if your Wireless Router is
802.11b/go/a, and the card in you computer is only 802.11b/g, it would not
be able to use the 5 GHz part of the Router, it would work only with the 2.4
GHz part.
