to use N. The default is probably G. Go into the router setup (use a wired connection) and set the router up for N.
Better signal? Nope. Just faster ADVERTISED speed. And this advertised speed is all hype. Wireless G is about 54 Mb/s. In actuality you'll get about 10 Mb/s. With wireless N, advertised speed around a hundred Mb/s, you'll be lucky to get 30 Mb/s.
Those advertised (bragging) speeds are in perfect laboratory conditions and will be nowhere near actual speeds. It's the nature of the beast.
