Thank you all in advance for any help. I tried to search to an answer here and google but with no luck. When you connect a 802.11g device like an iBook to a N-router, i realize that the wireless speed of the router will drop down from N to G across the network. However, does the Ethernet ports of the router also drops in speed? i.e. from gigabit ethernet to 100mbit? The reason I ask is, I'm thinking of purchasing a N-router with gigabit ethernet. I would like to keep the router's ethernet ports at full speed, as all the wired devices connecting to it are gigabit capable. However, I would also like to connect my Airport Express to the wireless network so that I may stream itunes. I would be fine with just the 802.11g wireless speed, but would very much like to have gigabit ethernet network. So do you think it's a possibility? Any suggestions would be helpful. Thank you again.
