Wireless N... How is it better?

Folks,

Very briefly, how is the new "n" wireless standard better than the previous b/g?

Is it about better/further coverage, (which I don't have a problem with), or is it about security?

I've no doubt that the answers are, in reality, more complex than a one word answer can give, and it may be better in both respects, but is it really worth replacing my router if I don't need any extra coverage?

Thanks,

regards,

Simsy

Faster and better range.

If your current router does what you need and has WPA2 PSK security then don't change.

No

N is faster security is whatever you set in the router remember WEP is easily crackable you need at least WPA - PSK
