      Windows or Mac?

      Apologies, I'm not a Windows user but if you are then I'm sure another member will be along shortly to advise the way to do it! (Scubbie, where are you???)


      [On a Mac, click the Apple logo on the menu bar and choose the "About this Mac" option then click on the "More Info" button then click on the "System Report" button and navigate to Network > Wi-Fi to see all the details of your Wireless Card. Look for Supported PHY Modes - 802.11 a/b/g/n is good.]

      Re: Speed Unhappy

      No problem. For best results, test using an ethernet cable direct to the router rather than a wireless connection (even if the computer IS in the same room as the router!)

      Or you could just click and keep pressed the ALT key whilst clicking on the Airport/Wifi icon

      I could do that but Network Preferences doesn't tell me anything about the capabilities of the wireless adapter!

      Re: Speed Unhappy

      Well I didn't know that! Mind you I don't really use wireless on my MacBook because it's always in my office and is about 6 feet from the router so I'm always plugged into ethernet. Thanks for the tip though, and I agree with you about shortcuts.

      network utility will tell you what capabilities the wireless card rating is, what speed it is connecting at. it will do this for the ethernet card as well. Other options in here are ping tests, trace route and whois and some others
