wireless router question

my wireless g router just broke.
i am planning to pick up a wireless n router. would it work with my existing wireless g cards? (I am plan up picking up a wireless n card later on)

what is a dual-band router?
would i need that instead to work with my existing wireless g cards?

Re: wireless router question

It will be backward compatible. N can operate in 2.4ghz or 5ghz. Some dual-band routers will only operate on one band - 2.4 or 5. Some that says simultanteous will allow both bands. This is good so you can separate the N to the 5ghz band and keep the G at 2.4ghz.
