Wireless N question

I believe that one of the advantages of Wireless N is an improved/longer wireless range.

At present I have the Netgear DG 834G V3. Would I be able to use a Wireless N router and get the extended range from it, if I did not install a WIRELESS N LAPTOP CARD.

Thanks in advance.

Further to my last question.

I also connect my iPhone wirelessly to my router.
The iPhone specs show:

802.11b/g/n Wi-Fi (802.11n 2.4GHz only)

Would a Wireless N router give me an extended range when I would be using my iPhone with it?

If the Laptop's Wireless Network Adapter is 802.11g, it won't gain any advantages of 802.11n by connecting it to an 802.11n Router.

The iPhone, however, should benefit from being connected to an 802.11n Router.

Thanks mgmcc for the help, its much appreciated.

The wireless network adapter was in the laptop from new, so I would guess it WILL NOT be 802.11n.

At least I know now that the iPhone, could make use of the Wireless N, i.e. extended range.

Thanks again for the help.

There is, of course, nothing to prevent you from plugging a USB 802.11n adapter into the Laptop. I have one of these incredibly small adapters for my Laptop, which doesn't have WiFi built-in. click here
