An 802.11n router will be backward compatible with "b" (11Mbps) and "g" (54Mbps) Wireless Network Adapters, so these will connect at their slower speeds. An 802.11n adapter, depending on its spec, will connect at 150Mbps or 300Mbps.

This isn't necessarily the solution to your system "dropping" (presumably the wireless connection). Dropped connections can be due to interference from other electrical devices and changing the Channel number in your router *might* solve the problem.
