I am just learning now how wifi works. My question is the following: If I configure a Wireless Router in N mode to maximize the range of the coverage of the router, the only wireless that can connect to the wifi router is only those with N wireless card or the G wireless card can get connected even that the router was configure straight to N mode?

Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

B/G/N should all be able to communicate on the router, As B/G are fallback compatible with N, unless I’m misunderstanding your question, that is correct.

You have Clients using G/N and they can connect to a N network and the router will fallback for their speed. I assume your confusion is coming from your router configuration page that has something to the effect of the following:

Set Router in B/G/N
Set Router in G/N
Set Router in N Only
