    Would be nice if v3 provided 'N' support. Actually I am surprised that 'N' is not included. Yes I am aware that the 'N" standard is not as yet fully baked but there are over 100 million "N' devices in the market place.

      It supports it as much as Windows does, when connected to an N access point the connection speed should be displayed. There is no extra information in the supported speeds column of the summary screen yet however as this information is not provided by/to the operating system yet.
