I wonder how fast it would be if I had a N network instead of the G?

I wish I had two wired units to try out but the only thing I have is two wireless connections and my wired connection to the router to test with.
Well, I wouldn't trust N as far as I could digitally toss it. But my experience with N is limited.

You might opt to go MIMO-G. That's what I use and the time to connect isn't too outlandish. Never timed it, but it seems like it's only a handful of seconds (5 or so)... definitely not 17. I'd time it for you... but my lappy is kaput currently.
