The range is better. I have the netgear WNR834
If you already have B or G the speed will be the same. Mega faster with
the matching N adapter.
I saw somewhere as to when the standard is out, It might be just a fw
upgrade. I pulled the plug early. I figured by the time the standard is
set I can have up and running now. Then deal with it again when it comes
out. It's not like there going to make it a standard and then everyone
is going to run out and upgrade to it. (Hotspots) But for now It's
running and The speed is great.
