      Sagemcom G vs N

      Whilst I understand the difference between Wireless G & N but I want to understand if I use Sagem F@st™ 2404 54 Mbps Wireless G Router (Grey Color) OR Sagemcom 2504N Wireless N (Latest Sky Router version 6) will it make any difference if I get 11mbps broadband speed at my home. I have no difficulty in connecting to 2404 ‘G’ router in my home & wireless strength is quite excellent in both the cases.

      Re: Sagemcom G vs N

      The N model is about 3 times faster than the G, so if your wireless download speed is not too good the faster router may help, provided you have a compatible adapter. If your download speed is within 10-15% of your connection speed, it is not going to be of any benefit.

      I get the same speed from ‘G’ & ‘N’ router. I am running internet on Dell Latitude E6400, Core2 DUO 2.4 Ghz & 4GB RAM. Do you think ‘N’ router is making any difference apart from Signal strength?

      I get the same speed from ‘G’ & ‘N’ router.
      As I said you need an N compatible adapter to get any benefit from an N router. If you have an adapter that is only capable of G speeds, an N router will make no difference. Do you have an wireless N adapter?

      Sorry for asking totally dumb question…what do you mean by wireless N adapter & if it is the 'connecting device' Network Card then how do I check my laptop is compatible with wireless N?

      If you have a laptop of Desktop with a built-in WiFi adaptor and M$ Windows, navigate to "Device Manager", expand the Network Adaptors branch and look at the make & model of the WiFi adaptor.

      If it doesn't include the suffix 'G' or 'N', Google the adaptor and see if you can find its specifications.

      What hasn't been mentioned is the increased signal strength.

      WiFi n routers tend to have a fare better signal strength than WiFi g routers. The Sagem 2504N does have a better signal range than the older Sagem 2504. Again you really need to have a WiFi n adaptor installed to benefit from the improved signal strength too.
