I have two laptops that both have the Intel 4965AGN network adapter in them, and have a home network with a D-Link DIR655 router that is 802.11n capable.

I run Windows Vista, and when I click the Start button then Connect To, when the 'Connect to a network' box pops up and I hover the mouse over the name of my network it says the radio type is 802.11g.

Shouldn't this say 802.11n?

However when I right click on my network and choose Status, in the next box that pops up it shows my connection speed as 130Mbps, which is obviously beyond the 54Mbps maximum of 802.11g, so it's pretty obvious then that I am connecting at 802.11n speeds, but why doesn't Windows report this as being the radio type as described above?

Thanks in advance!
