You need not to worry about the letters g or n, but if you mast know; then the g (and n) stands for a protocol that is used for transmitting data i.e. a highway that “transmit” cars.
The “old” g is being replaced by the “new” n, which is supposed to be faster.
 
Now back to you question.
The new model n is faster, and without doubt more expensive, and as the “older” g has been working without problems for many years, I would buy one of these.

Theencryption key secures your data from unauthorized access. The router's password is a Passphrase or the WEP or WPA orWPA2 encryption key. The Passphrase generates the WEP or WPA or WPA2 encryptionkey and this is in the router's wireless settings. To connect to your wireless router, it needs the router'swireless settings configured ie SSID, WPA or WPA2 encryption key and also thewireless cards in all the laptops and or computers needs to be configured withthese router's wireless settings. Then the laptops and desktop computers cancommunicate with your wireless router.

The setup disc for the router only needs to be run once when setting up the router to work with your internet provider and modem/router. You can try putting the disc in your desktop computer and reconfiguring the router.

Hi Friend, It depends that whether your router is wireless or wired. If it is a wireless router then there is no need to connect the laptop with the cable, you can use the laptop wirelessly If it is a wired router and as you said that the Desktop is already connected to the router with the cable so in that case you have to get another ethernet cable and can connect it from the router to your laptop

My landlord would like to use my router. how do i


It depends on your router settings. If you use a password, your landlord will need to know the type of security and your password. If you use a mac address filter, you'll need to add your landlords mac address to the list in your settings. Try connecting to your router in a web browser, it's probably at 192.168.1.1, and look at your security settings.

first a couple of things.
if your router has wireless support your laptop (if new) should have a wireless adapter built in, so basically your destop computer can be wirely plugged into the router and your laptop shoud "connect wirelessly" to your adapter
so this is how your set up should look like

desktop
--cable-- = - cablemodem - = linksys router = ----- wire----- desktop

laptop
--cable-- = - cablemodem - = linksys router = ))wireless))) laptop

you need read up a bit, here are some links that will have info you need

manual for wireless configuration (select the proper revision for your router and check user manual)

configure wireless network for vista


read up and if you have any questions post back.

hope that helps.

Wanting wireless hookup


1)Prepare your modem. Unplug the modem's power cord and place the wireless router unit next to the modem. If the router has antennas, make sure they are raised to their full upright position.
2)Reassign your networking cable. Unplug the cable currently connected from your computer to your modem and plug it into the port located in the wireless router. This port is usually colored blue.
3)Connect the router and the modem. Use the networking cable that came with your wireless router to connect the modem and router unit. The router port is typically colored in green.
4)Start up your modem. Plug in the modem's power cord and wait 1-2 minutes while it configures its settings and prepares to connect to the Internet.5
5)Start up the wireless router. Plug the wireless router's power cord into an outlet and wait 1-2 minutes to get it started. The router is ready when the 'wired computers' and 'modem' icons light up. These logos or icons vary by make and model of your router so consult the owner's manual if needed.6
6)Insert your installation CD. Use the wizard or assistant to check the configurations of your computer settings and launch your wirelessnetwork clip_image001.gif
Things You’ll Need:

Can not connect wirelessly using my netgear router.


are you trying to connect using a laptop or desktop? have you ever connected? More info is needed to answre your question, but generally speaking you should be able to go to start-run-type in cmd and the type ipconfig/all. The default gateway in the list is your netgear router. type that number (192.168.xxx.xxx) into your web browser. This is your wireless routers address within your network. You should be prompted with user name and password. If you are trying to connect from another computer whether it is a desktop with an atenna or a laptop, you should first make sure that the wireless connection is not encrypted. If not, there will not be a lock next to it in available wireless networks. Click on your router name and the operating system should take care of the rest. Sometimes you have to configure windows firewall to allow these connections. You also have to make sure that you computer is set to obtain an ip address automatically. Hope something helps you out.

Setting up a wireless router


first you have to check the ip address of the dsl modem you used and see to it that it is not the same ip address of the router to avoid conflict. the default ip address of dlink router is 192.168.0.1.if in case your dsl modem has the same ip address with the router, you have to change firs the ip address of the router before connecting the router to your dsl modem.
next you need to know your internet connection whether it is DYNAMIC or PPPOE, depending on how your internet provider configured your modem. for PPPOE connection, you have to know the USERNAME and PASSWORD that your provider provides you.
good luck.
