I currently have an older Netgear G wireless router, cable internet. The office desktop plugged into it via a wired connection shows 26 Mbps download speeds on Speedtest.net. The entertainment laptop with a wireless G/N card in the next room over gets 16 Mbps download speed.
Would switching to an N router make my wireless connection any faster, closer to the 26 of the wired connection?
It seems the main limiting factor is my cable bandwidth. I believe G theoretically maxes out at 54 Mbps and I'm nowhere near that so it's not like the router is maxed out, but would a newer N router with my laptop's N adapter give an improvement that would be noticeable when streaming movies from Amazon?
