Default 802.11 g/n

I'm curious , If you have a computer with a 802.11g card installed. Will it work with a 802.11n Router?

Yes, but you won't get N speeds or range with it. It will operate in G mode which is 54mbps max.

but only get the speed that the router provides?

Your wireless card and router have to be compatible. So you need for example an 802.11g router and an 802.11g card. Most 802.11n routers and cards are backward compatible, but that's something you need to check.

802.11n is 248 megabits/second, or 31 megabytes/second.
