Solved: Converting from 802.11g to 802.11n
Okay so i have no idea how this is done,according to all the sources,802.11n has alot better range in terms of indoors and outdoors,does anybody have a walkthrough as to how this is done? and if there is any setbacks to it? it would be apprectiated

so i must know if my router has wireless n capability,i have virginmedia's Superhub (the first one),so im guessing it does. :P

Yes, 'n' has higher bandwidth and greater range than 'g.' There's really no trick to "converting"; just use an 802.11n wireless router or access point and 802.11n adapter(s). Even if the adapter is only 'g' you will still get better range than with a 'g' router.

Login to the router and look in the wireless section for the wireless mode options; or

Look for the specs for the router; or since if it is 'n' it is likely set to use that so ...

Please attach a screen shot of the Networks page (don't collapse the Radar, Connection or Signal History) of the Xirrus Wi-Fi Inspector. If your only email accounts are free (Hotmail, gmail, etc.) try this direct link. If you need help with a screen shot see TSG Posting a Screenshot. FWIW to take screen shots with Windows 8 or 7 or Vista I prefer to use the built-in Snipping Tool.

Did it thank you ,although i cant use the 300mbps one,i did notice that can cause a issue too,when i go onto the 300mbps instead of 54mbps and 144mbps, itll turn the internet off for the computer (like i was never connected and itll stop it for everything that was using 2.4ghz to not connect to the internet ,im still looking for a fix for this),this has stopped me from staying on 2.4ghz too :L
