Find out the max.WiFi protocol 802.11...of current hardware? + MIMO?

Assume I have got an unknown computer/notebook with installed Windows.

The hardware has a WiFi Adapter.

How can I find out the maximum possible WiFi protocol 802.11......?

To clarify: I don't want to get the WiFi protocol with which the computer is currently connected (to Router (which can be lower)) but the maximum it offers.

Furthermore is there an information which MIMO technique is supported by the hardware:


Are the infos somehow retrievable from within a running WindowsOS?

Thank you

The exact make model of the WiFi card tells you the speed it can do is n type max is 300 meg but what you actually get depends on how far you are from the router and what's in the way

You can find out about Properties of your computer's Wireless Network Adaptor in Device Manager.

Open Device Manager, open the Network adaptors node, right-mouse click on your WiFi adaptor and select Properties. Once in Properties Window, select the Advanced Tab and all the properties the OS knows is under Property heading.
