This may sound like a stupid question because I can't see the forest for the trees, but I can't locate this answer before shopping.
My question is this: I currently have a Linksys g router in my home. I have a printer (wired), two laptops and a desktop computers and a wii linked to this. Until recently, all has gone very well. Lately however, the system seems very slow on any computer (range 6yrs to 3 mos in age). I have noticed the light panel in the front is no longer white but orange. I usually believe that this is a firmware update that is needed. I have checked and all states that I am on the most current version. What else could be causing this?
I have also thought that maybe it is time for a new router in any event as this one is a few years old as well. I wanted to get an N wireless router hoping for better range. Second floor and third floor is spotty. My question with regard to this is: all n router that I have looked at state they support b/g/n. Does this mean that I do not have to also buy a network adapter for the older computer that only has b/g?
Recommendations? Work with old one or go for the new one????
Any thoughts would be appreciated.
