Question: How do I determine if clients are associated with 802.11n or a/b/g?
Product and Software: This article applies to all platforms and ArubaOS 3.3.2.x and later.
The 'show user' command shows us to which band the clients are associated. HT (High throughput) is the term used by Aruba for the "N" band. The following output shows the clients associated to "a","g" band and "a-HT", "g-HT" in N band.

You can also use the following commands:
#show ap association client-mac <mac of client>
#show ap association ap-name <name of the AP>
Using the WebUI
1) Log on to the WebUI of the controller.
2) Go to Maintenance > clients to check if the clients are using 802.11n or other standard.
