    As the title ask: Will wireless 802.11 g on ipt work with wireless N?

    Or will 3g 8gb user need new Ipods when wireless N takes over?

    most router companies, such as LinkSys, Netgear, D-Link, etc, will ensure their routers have support for the wireless b and g protocols for years to come as well as having wireless n on their routers.

    wireless g will not be fazed out anytime soon as hundreds of millions of devices require wireless g for wifi. and all wireless n routers are backwards-compatible.

    wireless a will be fazed out very soon though.

    but if you plan on using the N while your using the G with the touch, the N device may be forced to G as well, because some routers can only do N when there is only N devices using it.
