I am looking at upgrading my router from G to N. Do you still get the same performance if the router operates in a mixed environment i.e. one PC has an N card and the other has a G.

Any suggestions on what router to buy?, I have had a look and there is a lot to choose from and a wide price range.

The standard rule on wireless is that if you have a G device on the network you all get G Speed,

ALthough there are newer routers that have dual band antennas that do support both N and others at the same time.

Apple's new Airport springs to mind, but I am sure there are others,

Belkin Vision N does this too.. Wireless g and wireless N at the same time.. Is also quite a nice router, is far superior to the lesser belkins which i wouldnt recommend to anyone..
