    I have an Airport Extreme at home whose radio setting is set to "Automatic" which I believe means it is working simultaneously in dual 2.4 and 5 GHz bands and devices automatically connect to the fastest band that they are compatible with.

    My question is how do I ensure that the MBA is actually connected to the 5 GHz 'n' network? Where do I go to check this? Airport Utility or some other application?
