On Associated Stations (at the bottom of the main status page) first you would look at the device, if it is wlan0 that is 5 GHz on most routers, wlan1 is 2.4 GHz. 2.4 connections are always n. On a 5 GHz connection, if it says "VHT-MCS" the client is operating in an ac mode, if it only says "MCS" the client is operating in an n mode. An ac client is free to drop back to n if required by signal conditions or distance to the router.
