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/nwd170...5159001b/771397 .. any thoughts?

I wouldnt bother with anything draft-n. Just go for a full on Wireless N that is newer. You wont see much difference in speed from wireless g unless you play multiplayer games (counterstrike etc). If you use your computer as a media server you will see a big difference though!

N150s aren't real N routers.

But on the topic of G vs N. No, you won't see a difference other then MAYBE increased signal strength.(or if you're doing network streaming, as poster above stated).
