I'm buying a Wireless-N router for my parent's house for Christmas. They have a rather large house (around 6,000 sq. ft.) so I am going to get them an N router since they will likely need the additional range.
I'm also giving them a laptop which has wireless-G built into it.
My question is this: They don't need the speed benefits of Wireless-N (only DSL is available to them because they live out in the country) but they do need the distance benefits. Would the internal wireless-G NIC in the laptop allow them to reap the distance benefits of the wireless-N router or do I need to puchase a USB wireless-N adapter for them as well?
I haven't been able to find a certain answer on the internet so I'm hoping you guys can help me out.
Thanks in advance.
