    I know my MBP is compatible with Wireless-N networks. However, is there any way to find out what kind of network I'm on at any given time? As in whether I'm on A/B or G or N? Is there any way to tell while only having access to information available on the client side of things?

    hmm.. off hand, you could check network utility. Open it, choose "en1" which should be your wireless connection. There you can see your link speed. I'm currently on an N and my link speed is 130 Mbits. A G connection would be 54 or so.

    Not sure if there's a way to quickly see what standard you're "on" without some 3rd party utility that I don't know about.
