Have high speed internet. Have a 3gbsdram. And I have a router that is a g.
Would I benefit as far as computer speed on the net with a router that is an
n router. Also even though the computer says 802.11 a/g/n wireless I still
would have to buy the the adapter that goes into the notebook?
I know nothing about routers and the fact we have a g router it doesn't have
an adapter needed for the computer to work. Was wondering if that is the
same case with a wireless n router? thanks

No, just one. I think your question just answered my own thought. Thought
maybe because they are so much faster my internet speed would increase
dramatically.

You don't say what the speed of your broadband connection is, but it's
*extremely* unlikely that it's faster than your current router. The
additional speed of the 802.11n router would show up in communications
between your computers that are connected with it, not with Internet
connections.
Also even though the computer says 802.11 a/g/n wireless I still
would have to buy the the adapter that goes into the notebook?

If it says 802.11a/g/n then I guess that's what it has. I would not
expect to need anything else.

No, your 'internet' speed will not change at all, because the lowest speed
wireless you get is faster than your 'internet' connection. Where it
*will* make a difference is in local network speeds, ie transferring files
from one system to another.
