    Hi there

    I just bought an Airport Express on eBay. Came today. It was advertised as the 'n' version but it will only give me the option to use b/g. How can I tell if its the b/g or n version? Also, it came with no packaging, just the unit and the manual and CD. Nothing else, no box nothing.

    Thanks guys

    Peter

    There should be a model number marked on the unit. Google that and see which one u have.

    Check the manual - page 5:

    AirPort Express is based on an Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE)
    draft 802.11n specification and provides better performance and greater range than
    previous IEEE 802.11 standards. AirPort Express is compatible with computers using
    802.11b, and 802.11g, as well as computers using the 802.11a and 802.11n wireless
    standards.

    I would say if that's not there, you have the b/g model.
