What does your set-up look like? You can connect all your devices though Wireless N or G. If you just use the WRT54g, all your devices will connect through G. The only reasons to move to N is for faster LAN or you are in a heavy G area among other things.

Just to make sure there is no confusion. If you have heavy G (or 802.11/802.11b which are 2.4Ghz) then you would need to use N in the 5Ghz range to get away from the interference. Otherwise you will see little to no improvement.

Windows 7 supports wireless adapters. I have seen problems with off the wall products, but that’s no real surprise. If you get a name brand you should be fine.

As long as you can get the drivers working for your usb adapter, then you should be fine.
