For a house hold wireless router for a laptop or two and wired into a desktop would there be any advantage to get a N router. And what are the advantages. The speed at which the internet is run is all based off your ISP right? The speed increases would only be within the nextwork from computer to computer right?

remember n router is worthless unless wireless computers are also n compatible. There should be distance and speed advantages not to exceed the isp.

it should still work with g and you can use g but you would lose the advantages of n.

Range and speed, two things that most people seem to find pretty important for wireless networking.
