802.11n Hardware Question

On my laptop, I ran on the command line:

netsh wlan show drivers

The "Radio Types Supported" say:  802.11a 802.11b 802.11g.

However, if I navigate to the Device Manager in the "Advanced" tab for my wireless card, it shows properties for 802.11n on different channels and for a 802.11n mode.  So, is it capable of handling 802.11n?  

I attached a screenshot of the device manager properties.

Thanks. Just curious--why does the command line only say a,b, and g?

That is probably what the device is connected to and/or working at. I have an N card right now and the connection is G because that is all I can get here.
