Will adding a "N" WAP to a "G" router help the speeds of wireless devices throughout the house such as laptops and ipods etc. My current ISP is verizon with download speeds up to 35 Mbps. Verizon does not currently offer a wireless N router.

There's nothing stopping you from buying your own wireless N router and using it. If you were to do so, you'd simply disable the wireless on the G router, and enable it on the N. I wouldn't run N and G together as only the clients connected to the N AP would get N bandwidth.

For info on adding a second router to your network, click on my name above in my response and read my "how-to" guide on "adding a second router". You'll want to use the "LAN to LAN" scenario for simplest setup.

I bet if you do some price comparisons, you'll also find that an N router is the same amount of money, or less, than an AP.

It matters not how straight the gate,
How charged with punishments the scroll,
I am the master of my fate;
I am the captain of my soul.
