Hot to obtain the Wireless protocol of the devices that i am detecting?

I am working at a project and i need to know what type of protocol is being used by the networks that my application is scanning.

I scan for networks, with iwlist [interface] scan
but i get only SSID, MAC, NOISE AND SIGNAL LEVEL and other useless info for me,from the other devices.
I need to know how i can get the protocols they are set to.
802.11 b, 802.11 g, 802.11n
Please help me, it is urgent.
