    Howdy,
    I currently have a Dlink 802G wireless router. I have even added an extended antenna on it and it is still problematic if it will connect with my wireless laptop downstairs. I've seen a good price on a refurbisk Linksys affiliated N router. Since the laptop was issued by my wifes employer, it is locked down pretty tight. So I don't believe I can install a N adapter to it. My question is will the N Router running in G mode have anychance of producing a stronger signal on G?
    I've looked at access points and as this is not our computer I don't want to spend the money on getting upgraded if I find out it can. The rest of the computers are hard wired.
    Thanks for any assistance.
