Still Incorrect - WIRELESS DIAGNOSTIC UTILITY is reporting the DIR-890L PROTOCOL for 2.4GHz to be '802.11b/g/n', when I have it set to only 'Mixed 802.11g/n'

I've only been using two apps (iStumbler / Mac Wireless Diagnostic Utility - Scan).  I check the INFO on both the iStumbler app and the Mac Diagnostic Utility app.  The Mac Diagnostic Utility app has several options when selecting WINDOW - top left menu bar (Assistant / Info / Logs / Scan / Performance / Sniffer / Monitor)

Please include the Opt click on WiFi icon results as well so we can compare all 3 apps. The Opt click on WiFi icon info should either be the same or differ from the other two apps.

The 'option' click on Wi-Fi icon provides the exact same info as the Mac Wireless Diagnostic Utility.  I'm assuming 'option' click / Wi-Fi icon is just a "quick view" of INFO instead of having to open the Mac Wireless Diagnostic Utility and selecting INFO  ;)

What are you thinking Furry, in regards to this situation.  Do you think it's a "D-Link router" situation, or an "App" issue?  It would be interesting to see INFO from both apps with other router manufacturers.  I may not be able to test the 5500 until tomorrow sometime.  It's currently set as an AP, so it won't be a problem to connect to the 890L and test.

Not sure. Anything is possible. I've passed this on to D-Link for review. Hope we might get some feed back.

I just looked at other networks around my neighborhood with the Mac Wireless Diagnostic Utility (Scan feature).  I don't know what their "mode" settings are, but I'm seeing the same type of results for 2.4 GHz networks (b/g/n) and 5GHz networks (n/ac). 

One thing I noticed, is my HP Laser Jet Pro 200 printer (M276nw) shows the following INFO in the Mac Wireless Network Utility:
Protocol - 802.11b/g
Quality - N/A
RSSI - -64dBm
Noise - 0
Tx Rate - N/A
Channel - 3
Channel Band - 2.4 GHz
Channel Width - 20 MHz

Not sure what to take from this info  ???

It almost seems like the scan function is detecting actual supported modes by the product rather then actual connected working mode.  ???

I was kind of thinking the same thing.  I'm just a "greenhorn" when it comes to networking and routers  ;)
