Can I Use Wireless G and Wireless N At The Same Time?

I am looking at a D-LINK DGL-4500 wireless router for my home office. I dont know much about wireless networking. I was reading the comments for that device at this site, and saw how someone mentioned it "couldnt run both 2.4 and 5 Ghz at the same time" and was wondering what that means, and will it affect my setup?

"Since it isn't a dual-radio router, it will only be able to run on a single frequency.

Therefore, you won't be able to connect to it on 5Ghz and 2.4Ghz simultaneously, forcing you to only use 2.4Ghz.

The WiFi G devices won't be negatively affected, but the WiFi N devices won't be able to use the new 5Ghz band, which would have had reduced interference."
