    I can upgrade my laptop from 802.11G to 802.11N. My router is an N router. Is there any point to doing this? I am using a cable modem that seems to run at download speeds of 20-24 Mbps.

    Any advice?

    Thanks!

    G speeds work upto 54Mbps
    so other than copying across your network -you wont see any increase in speed for internet download
