Wireless G/B/N/A Which one is my ipad connecting to?

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
My wireless router boradcasts 802.11 N, B, G, and A. How do I know which one my iPad is connecting to? When I try to broadcast just N I can not get my iPad to connect. I have to set my router to broadcast multi wi-fi types.

Is there a way to tell which one I am using on the iPad?

iPad supports A, B, G, N. Try updating your firmware on your router

ok... so, is there a way to tell which connection type the ipad is using?
Is it connecting with N, G, B, or A?
How does it decide which one to use?
What is the priority?

Any ideas?

It probably tries N then goes to G then worse case B. A is very unlikely because usually only edu and enterprise use those routers.

Some sort of wireless streaming from another connected PC or Mac would be the way to test what is connecting by looking at speeds (eg transmission speed from the PC. Yeah it's tricky to set up.)

If your router is in N only mode and iPad doesn't connect try a different channel, maybe. That's all I can think of.

I couldn't tell on my iPhone 4 which network it was connecting to. Best bet would be to look inside your router, I guess. But I would agree with Nvidia that it would try N first, then G, B, and finally A
