Can you use a B/G network card with an N router or N with a B/G router? (And they'll connect together)

802.11 a,b,c, and so on WiFi Cards with a 802.11g router the answer is Yes you can.

The Letter a and so on denotes the speed of the WiFi Connection or at least what it is capable of achieving. If you use a B type Card with a g Type Router the Data Transfer will only be as fast as the slowest component. So here it's best to have the fastest Part at the actual WiFi Access Point and the terminals having the slower connection speeds to allow as much bandwidth as possible through to the end users.

No, I was asking if you can a G component with an N component.

In that case Yes it will

You can use a slower WiFi Access Point and connect a newer faster WiFi Device to that Point but in that case the speed of any Data Transfer will still only be as fast as the slowest part of the LAN.

So if you connect a new NB to a older existing WiFi Access Point it will not run as fast in Data Throughput as it would if you where to connect to a new WiFi Access Point.

All WiFi is a 2 way communication and relies on Transceivers at both ends to allow communication so when you use mismatched WiFi Connections it doesn't really matter which end is the slowest or fastest to the individual workstation.
