should allow the g laptops to work. I have a G router and have mine set to mixed mode so my wireless print server can communicate with my printer. Some wireless devices don't always use G network.
I just set up my home network with a "n" wireless router. I have 2 laptops with g cards and desktop with a N adapter. When I check my network with my laptop it shows up as a G network. I assume that if I am running my only my desktop with the N adapter it will show as a N network. What happens when I am running my laptop(G) and desktop (N) at the same time.
