Default Wireless Draft-N vs Wireless-G

Hi,

Newbie here.

I was wondering, is there really much benefit to connecting via Wireless-N as opposed to Wireless-G? Will I notice the difference? I'm on a 10mbit connection, with a Draft-N router, but my desktop isn't Draft N-compatible, but.. I'm not sure if I'd see much of a difference if it was.

I'm considering http://www.cisco-routers.co.uk/u/pd/...159001b/771397
.. any thoughts?

Thanks in advance

It's hard to tell if there will be a difference or not because it will depend on so much. In theory there will be a difference but in practice this isn't always true. I'd say that it's not going to hurt. IMHO, since you've already got a Wireless N router, it does kind of make sense to take full advantage of it.

Thanks I've been told this - http://ramblax.co.uk/p~p-96172624~Li...039348245.aspx - would be the product to go for, as it's made for desktops, and it's Linksys-braned, like my router.. agreed?

Looks like a good enough product and it should be easy to configure it since they are the same brand. Good luck.
