All wireless routers are backward compatable. If you buy an N router it will work with the older B/G cards. No worries. My D-link DIR-655 has radio settings to select any combination:
My other Linksys WRT350N has the same settings.

Many of my students are buying new computers with "N" cards. But other students still have older lap tops with "B" or "G" wireless cards. If I buy an "N" router..will the older lap tops pick up the "N" Router wireless signal?
Does a laptop with an "N" card require an "N" router or can it operate with a "B" or "G" router as well? Will it pick up the signal?
