    No.

    Depends. Multi-band routers: no. Single radio routers: yes.

    Don't fuss, you won't notice any difference in speed while web-browsing.

    Had looked there... but also had read in iFixit that the radio supports it
    so I wasnt sure if iOS4 had changed anything.

    Like how Snow Leopard added the SD card slot to my Mac? I also notice that it added a "Pro" to the end of "MacBook" on the screen label.

    I'm still trying to figure out how they done-it! :confused:

    Meaning that the updated software had allowed that connectivity.

    As far as I know, it's the same chip as the one that's used on the iPhone 4, and that device does support (single-band) 802.11n. So even if Apple has it disabled on the touch, one would think it could easily be enabled via jaibreak by steailng some plists or drivers or something from the iPhone 4.

    Yup like how Apple sold the '802.11n' enabler for the original Macbook Pros.

    Egg meet face.

    Theres a 802.11n receiver in the 3G touch, but for some reason it only supports b/g.

    Like I mentioned earlier, same chip is used in the iPhone 4 which does support n. If someone knows which files control the hardware, I'll grab them and upload them somewhere... could be an easy way to enable n.
