A friend of mine wants to buy and set up a new router for his mother for Mother's Day. He is completely clueless about this and I know just a little more than he does. She has an Acer Aspire One small laptop with a wireless-G card in it. All that he is hoping to accomplish is giving his mother a wireless network in the house so she can walk around with her computer. That's it. I looked around for an old router of mine but I must have tossed it so we need to go shopping.
Other than making it easier for her to upgrade her wireless card in the future, is there any benefit to getting a wireless-N router now (as compared to a wireless-G router) and using it with her current wireless adapter? Will she get better range? I understand that her speed will be limited to 54 mbps.
Thanks for any help.
