Yes, it would still work but the speed that you will be getting for the wireless is only 54mbps which is provided with your Wireless-G connection in your home. N card works with a range of frequency from 2.4 GHz through 5 GHz and holds a maximum of data rate of 248 Mbps way more than the standard nowadays of 54 Mbps. (G net cards type).

G

There are various "bidding" cheap ones, and they usually go for cheap. It's 10:14AM here.. get on in about 12 hours and they will be going to cheap in america. Or you can just get one now lol. Thats for the G routers.. never looked at N as there is no need for me to.

I have to get ready for work.

You won't get 802.11n for that price, but 802.11g will be more than fast enough. The only reason you really need 802.11n is if you're streaming HD video or something within the network. 802.11g will still be faster than your internet connection.

Both of these are good for the price:
