Wireless Router N vs G for Nintendo Wii Compatibility
by annagrace95666 - 9/16/11 1:57 AM
Let me preface this question with admitting I know very little about techie stuff, but I'm trying to learn. Talk to me like a beginner.
I use my wireless router for my laptop, iPod, iPad, and Wii. I used to have a decent "N" router, but when I got my Wii, it wouldn't work with the "N" router so I had to get a "G" router. I've been experiencing a lot of lag lately and slow connection doing simple things like surfing the web, watching Netflix, etc. I'm thinking of upgrading my internet service, but wanted to make sure my router wasn't what was holding me back. I've done a little digging online, and from what I can tell, "N" routers are superior to "G" routers for many reasons (most of which I can't comprehend; I assume they are faster among other things).
So I have 2 basic questions:
1) are N routers faster than G routers?
2) is there a fast N router out there that is compatible with the Wii?
I greatly appreciate any feedback you guys have. Thanks!!
