    Hi, I recently bought a Linksys EA4500 dual band wireless 'n' router to improve reception. Without changing the SSID I broadcast on 5 GHz is there any way I can tell whether my iPad is using 5 or 2.4 ?

    Nothing on the iPad, to the best of my knowledge. There might be something in the router, in the logs or where it shows what clients are connected.

    Thanks but the router's admin pages don't say either, even though I've set up a Linksys "smart wifi" account. :(

    It is automatic assuming the channel you are connected to is the high speed connection Yu could use speed test to verify

    If it is a dual band, then you should be able to give each band a different SSID. That's what I do and I can easily tell which one my iPad is on.
