Here are the systems which will be on the network:
MacBook Pro C2D
iMac C2D
PC

Both the Macs are wireless N enabled and i will be getting a wireless N adaptor for the PC. Here is the kit i was thinking to get:
Netgear DG834N - http://netgear.co.uk/rangemaxnext_wirelessbroadbandrouter_dg834n.php
Netgear WN121T - http://netgear.co.uk/rangemaxnext_wireless_usb_adapter_wn121t.php

This should mean everything will be running at N speed correct?

Will this set up work?

I'm confused because i know nothing about this whole new N system and about the drafts, 1.0 and stuff like that. I don't want to get it and find out one of my systems is holding it back or just end up not working at all.

I have a similar set up at the moment but with older netgear hardware and an older iMac (getting the new one in a few days).

As far as I can make out you should be fine. :confused:

My wireless network is set up like that but it's not N, and it works alright.

Don't quote me on that though.

What do you mean by 5GHz?
uumm 802.11n has 2 different frequencies it can run on.. it can run 'native' at 5ghz (320mbps abouts) or it can run at 802.11n (2.4ghz) and have about 120mbps. the difference is because the frequencies are shorter at 2.4 thus they dont go as far or as fast.

hope that helps.
