Hi, I have a computer/s which has a "G" speed Network card - but my router model (Part #: F5D8636au4a){ver. 2000au) is an N-300 speed.
Specifications of Router/Modem:
(Standards):
IEEE 802.11n
IEEE 802.11g
IEEE 802.11b
IEEE 802.3u
IEEE 802.3
(Link Rate): Up to 300Mbps in 40MHz Channel Mode
I'm looking at buying a network adapter (possibly Belkin brand) for the G speed computer so that it is boosted up to N speed.
The questions I have are:
What are the (minimum and/or optimum) specifications for a network adapter which best suit my needs for optimum performance?
If the computer is in close proximity to the router then there is no need for the adapter to have a high-powered antenna?
Thanks for your assistance.

Hi Eibgrad - thanks kindly for your reply.
So it doesn't matter what type of network card the G (Speed) card is?
Is there any negative effects of using a high powered Antenna?
