Computer showing that the "B/G/N" Channel is AC and the "AC" channel is "G/N"

I just setup my new wifi router and specifically assigned SSID's like -N (for the b/g/n 600mb channel) and -AC for the 1733mb ac channels so I can connect to the faster newer spec channel with my newer devices yet when I inspect them with my computer is shows the opposite. The -N SSID shows it is the ac spec channel and the -AC SSID shows it is b/g/n and I have verified the wifi router setup is correct. Seems odd. You can see the -AC SSID is on channel 153 which is what the router shows should be the ac channel yet it is only showing PHY mode 802.11n yet the -N channel is showing 802.11ac.

Hi jamesarm97,

 

Using other devices, do they have the same information shown? This might be a problem with the computer providing details or information specially for Windows 10.
