Draft N Wireless Card and Netgear Modem Router

  Mad Mick 19:18 29 Feb 2008

I am purchasing a Dell Inspiron laptop which has a draft N wireless card. The modem/router I have at present is a Netgear 834G v3. Will I be able to use the new laptop wirelessly with the present modem/router? I realise that I may have a drop in quality but I have spent most of my funds on the laptop and can't afford to replace the modem/router for a few months yet.

If I can't use it wirelessly I will connect with an ethernet cable. Any advice would be appreciated.

Just configure the adapter's driver to run in 802.11g and you'll be fine. You may not even need to adjust it.

Thank you Kemistri. Sorry it took so long to reply but I have had a Mother's Day party to organise on behalf of my grandchildren. Once again thanks for taking the time to respond.
