i have a dell laptop that i bought just a few years back and it came with Intel Proset/Wireless with A,B, and G capabilities. when my old G router died, i went to wally-world and, not thinking whether it would fully work, bought a new belkin N router.
Now.........my question is: am i gonna need to go buy a belking wireless N card for my laptop to get the full potential of the wireless N?

Which is the more practical, and more important, the cheaper way out?

Hello bighead_norris,

N is a good choice in router, some routers offer backwards compatibility to allow for the older frequencies. For more information on each group, have a look at http://compnetworking.about.com/cs/wireles...211standard.htm
