Use more 'radio modes' for AirPort Extreme Base Stations
Authored by: michelle_eris on Apr 18, '08 11:22:55AM

I do not get any options for n only or to specify frequency on my system. Without the option key I have only one item in the popup menu; 802.11n (802.11b/g compatible). With the option key, I have that plus, 802.11b only, 802.11g only, and 802.11b/g compatible. This is with a Time Capsule as a WDS main, and also with an Airport Express as a WDS remote.

The wireless devices on the network are an iPhone and an HP printer, both of which are b/g compatible devices; neither supports n.

That's probably because the AirPort Express doesn't support 802.11n either. AirPort Utility knows that your Extreme is in a WDS with it and won't let you unintentionally break that by changing the mode.
