    Hello everyone! 1st post here! I don't see a specific forum for the linksys 310n wireless N router so here goes...!

    Need help understanding what my best settings should be in the wireless setup config page at

    Do I want: Auto, Wide - 40mhz, or Standard - 20mhz?
    I have 1 laptop with N card and 1 laptop with G card on the system.
    What is the difference in the above options? Pro's and con's of each?
    Also, what is the best setting for "Basic Rate" - "Default" or "Auto"
    What are pro's and con's of either setting?

    Many thanks everyone!

    With the wireless G lappy in the mix you gonna need to set your router for Mixed Mode and everything else just leave auto... i think that'll cap your N speed to 65mbps but you can still use your G lappy at 54mbps.
