Angry Weird wireless problem.

I just installed Ubuntu 13.04, I LOVE IT. Anyways, my dad reconfigured our router which is the E4500 Linksys router. He set up the dual band to send out a 2.4 frequency with the name of Motor, just for the sake of redundancy. The second one broadcasting at a 5.0ghz is named Mango. I can only connect to Mango when in Ubuntu 13.04 x64 but not in Windows 7 x64. I have the GC-WB300D, it says I can connect to 5.0ghz which is weird. Another thing to mention is, I can see the network Mango for a split second if I disable/reenable the wireless card, but I can see it always on the Ubuntu version. I DONT UNDERSTAND EVERYTHING ELSE IN THE ENTIRE HOUSE CAN CONNECT (FLAILS RANDOMLY!!!!!!!!)

Sounds like it could be a driver issue. Have your downloaded the latest driver available for it from Gigabyte?
