    Yup

    It should I believe since the iPad works with N wifi. When it comes to all that technical areas of the routers setting, that shouldn't matter.

    Hmmm I might just buy a N router then for safety. I only want a new router that will work with the iPad, have good range and have a USB port.

    iPad has 802.11n wifi. It works with n or g routers, i couldn't imagine a router on the market that wouldn't work with the iPad...

    Here are a few to stay away from. I've got a couple that are listed, and so far I can't get any WiFi device to receive/send a signal from them. ;)

    If you want to be 100% safe then maybe you should consider an Apple Airpot Extreme.
