i believe so, i have a wireless g card and a wireless g router, wireless g works off of 2.4 GHZ standard wireless is like 802.11g. So your wirelss g card will do both but it would work better with a wirelss g compatable router
also any wireless networking hardware will work with other brands, ex. A linksys will work with a d-link because wireless frequency's are standard on all products.
but if you get wireless g card it will work the best with a wireless g router because it will utilize the more fasterness (if that's a word)
