Usually. If you want the best performance always buy wireless cards, modems, routers from the same brand. And yes, if the box says that it's compatible with 802.11a/b/g then it will work. It's just that your 802.11b wireless card will run at it's normal speed, while the 802.11g will run at a faster speed.
