Generally yes as long as they support the same wireless standard. B is the old one, G is the current and a lot of people have "sorta N". The N's will not work across brands because they are not to a released standard.

Forget B it is out of date, too slow and too unsecure.

Go for a G and anything will work together and with the older B's, but not secure and slower with the B equipemnt.

N will work with B and G also but you won't get the speed advantage so it's wasted money since G is much cheaper.

Yeah, it will work with any router, on any freguency.
But as pointed out, speed loss is inevitable if the frequencies are mixed.

Ep, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS
