    I was thinking of buying the Cisco Linksys E4200 router for £120, my laptop has a built in N adaptor, i was just wondering if it is worth buying a premium usb N adaptor and will it make any difference? Would appreciate some advice as i am a noob! Thanks.

    It will still be wireless either way, but the limiting factor for speed will be the bandwidth on the USB port. Stick with the internal.
