They are different but do exactly the same thing. Just depends whether you want to open up the PC and fit a wireless card or if you'd find it easier to use a plug and play dongle. :)

You can pick one up of here in FS/FT for around £10-£20. Not sure of shop prices as i haven't looked at one for ages. :)

Different speed and ranges. Eg N's more suited for streaming videos, online gaming and fast downloading...basically G's similar just not as fast/strong. As the technology advances these do too to cope with things

agreed again...I sold some on here a while back for £21 with a G and an N Belkin

Shops usually around £15+ dependent on model and make

banned#13

think Netgear tends to come as a bundle but not with Belkin unless promo on

PCI card goes into the back of your computer, the dongle easier
