On a Windows Vista-based computer that is using an 802.11n wireless network adapter, you pause the pointer over the network connection in the Connect to a network dialog box. Then, you receive a message that resembles the following:
Radio Type: 802.11g
The message suggests that the computer is using an 802.11g wireless network adapter instead of an 802.11n wireless network adapter.


Microsoft has confirmed that this is a problem in the Microsoft products that are listed in the "Applies to" section.


No action is required to resolve this problem. This problem is a display problem only. The display problem does not affect the correct operation of the 802.11n wireless network adapter.
