g+ and super G

Hi, I have a Belkin G+ MIMO router and a D-Link superG PCI card (DWL-G520). As I know, they are using different chipset (D-Link is Atheros and I don't know what Belkin uses), so is the D-link able to go up to super G speed when pairs with this router? THanks.

Almost never works.

Any proprietary non-standard usually means you must stick with the maker of all the parts. However it should work at the standard 54 megabit speed which will be fine for internet use and there should be zero gain for internet use at the higher speeds.

How about all those N-draft/Pre-N routers & cards. Would they work in pair if the chipsets are made by different companies?

Same story.

Those are non-standard implementations. Widely discussed and in that system it falls back to 802.11g speeds which is fine for internet use.
