I need to upgrade a house's routers because they are failing, but I'd also like to upgrade everything to wireless N if possible (I am buying a new router, or two if one won't end up covering the entire house)
The problem is, there is a 3rd generation iPod touch that only supports b/g, so a N-only network will not work.
I know you can keep backwards compatibility with b/g devices and an N router, but is it possible to run b/g on 2.4ghz and n on 5ghz? I though I read that was possible someplace.
If not, would the range be hurt? That's the main issue, not speed. The home internet connection isn't more than 8mbps, so I don't think speed is a huge issue. It's just a huge house that needs two wireless routers to cover the entire thing.
