Hey jake!

Wireless G(802.11g) is slower than Wireless N(802.11n), G runs at speeds up to 54MB's while the N runs up to 250MB's.

They will connect with devices running 802.11b wireless technology aswell.

Mainly though the newer they come out the faster speeds they have, not much to them just faster speed. You should get the fastest one you can though, but for most people Wireless speeds of 54MB's is fine.

The thing about n is that your computer can only use the n range if it has an n wireless receiver. However with n you recieve bigger range as well as much faster speeds. So i would go with the n since nowadays the price between the n and the g isnt that different but the decision is yours :thumbsup:
