USB wifi with master mode

I'm looking for a USB wifi which supports master mode, 11n modulation, 5GHz band (with master and ad-hoc support for this band) and has detachable antenna connector.
I know I probably want too much, but anyway, can somebody help me finding some at least USB wifi with master mode and 11n?

I'm not aware of many USB devices that offer Master mode, let alone all those other features you are looking for. I think you are going to have a problem with this one.

I would be interested in seeing if anyone knows of a device that will fit this very tall order though.
