Hi boys and girls! I recently had Comc(rap)ast come out and re-do my internet hookup. Apparently, it's been wrong from the start. Anyway, he noticed that my router was out of date (only does A/G). Said I could upgrade to A/G/N but I wasn't sure if that would do me any good if my wireless card on my laptop that I use mainly is only rated for A/G. Is there a way to tell if mine would support "N"? Thank you in advance!

If the wireless card on the laptop is only good for A/G then putting in an "N" router will do you no good.
N speed is faster than the A or G.
So, if comcast can supply the speed that a N router could use, AND your laptop had a card in it capable of handling the speed, then an upgrade would will work.
Bottom line is the laptop is still a bottle neck.

Thank you for replying. I had checked a few websites to see how to tell if i have "N" capability. Apparently I do. I also seem to remember seeing an update for my Intel wireless and seeing -N listed. I would double check, but I'm at work right now.
