1. how do i get to work with the 5Ghz bandwidth.
I assume that, by "new," you have the latest simultaneous dual-band 802.11n AirPort Extreme Base Station (AEBSn) ... correct?
If so by default your AEBSn will broadcast two wireless networks with the same network name. One of those network will be on the 2.4 GHz band, and the other will be on the 5 GHz band. If you want to "force" your computers to connect to the 5 GHz network, you can give that network a different name using the AirPort Utility.
2.and how do i know that i
m working with the (n) protocol and dont with the b/g?
what and where the indicator for that things?
You can determine this with the AirPort icon on your Mac's menu bar. Just Option-click on the AirPort icon (looks like a fan) and note the value for PHY Mode.

first i didn't notice that, and don't find him so far at least about the PHY mode.
even when i change the name i didnt see the 5Ghz Wifi Network... just the 2.4Ghz Network Name.
what shell i do...?
On your computer or laptop hold the option key down and click on the Airport icon on the menu bar as Tesserax stated. This will show you the 802.11 a, g, b, or N network that you're connected to. Other details will also be shown.
Then open Airport utility on your computer and click on the base station on the right, then on manual set up. Then click on the Wireless tab. If you're using anything that can't connect to a 5N network, iphone, ipod, etc. set radio mode to automatic. You'll have entered that network name above. That's the one those other devices will connect to. Then click on Wireless Options at the bottom and check the box for the 5G network name and enter a different name for it. You'll need the different name because the ATv2 may just connect to the 2.4 which will probably have the stronger signal. Update those changes. On the ATv2 go to settings click on network and you should see both network names pop up as well as other networks around you. Select the name of the 5G network you created. This is exactly what I did with my ATv2. Mine sits right next to the base station so signal strength is not an issue if yours is further away you might have an issue. But I found that the 5G network extends farther than I was led to believe, at least in my house. Now the issue about Israel will probably require Tesserax's input.
