Question about Computers & Internet
What is the diffrence??? and how do i know what one i need for my 1 1/2 year old gateway laptop???
G is a little older, but is still pretty much a standard for today and is by no means obsolete. N is the Newest WiFi technology, bleeding edge tech if you will. To determine what you need for your laptop, you need to look at the specifications of your laptop (if it came with a spec sheet) and see if it says "802.11g" or "801.11n" on it under wireless standard. If you do not have a spec sheet, you can google the model number of your laptop, along with the word gateway and the word specifications. The results will usually include some type of system specific specifications from where you can find out what type of wireless your laptop has. If you dont know what N does, you should be fine with G. By the date, it sounds like your laptop will have G standard. The specific difference is the amount of signals, and the total speed. G is 54 MBps and N can goto 248 MBps. However, your cable or DSL connection can only go about 10MBps or less probably, so it doesnt matter if you are going 54,248,or 10000000 MBPS locally on your LAN, since your link to the 'net is only 10 MBps. Long answer short, check the specs but probably go with G.
