    AEBS drops down to 802.11g or b, from 802.11n, doesn't it, if one of the devices on the network is not n-capable. So, if one's entire network consists of n-enabled devices, then using the iphone will drop the whole system down to g or b (and from the less crowded 5 ghz band used by the n standard to the often cluttered 2.4 ghz band), doesn't it? How can you tell which protocol is actually being used by the base station? I'm not a techie, but a happy Mac convert. If there's a reference that explains all this, I'd love to know.

    Many thanks.

    Your N will run at 130Mbit, not 300Mbit in compatibility mode, if you set your AEBS to b/g/n.
