    Good post, but I'll wait for Froyo. Not an issue for me at this point ;D

    I am confused by this. I thought the evo already works with n router. Am I missing something? I have the netgear wireless-n 300 and my evo, laptop, airave, and Wii connect to it and run at the same time without any issues what so ever.

    I'm a noobie at hacking etc.
    Can someone tell me if there a way for me to download a simple patch that would do this for me or must I do something more complicated then that?

    I've tried the N hack and I was not able to connect when the router was in pure N mode (not mixed G/N). I did speedtests multiple times, and even tried 2 different firmware flashes (I have the WNR3500L open router so I can run both DDWRT & Tomato). No joy.

    Josh--to answer your question--yes, there is a zip file that you can flash (in recovery mode) if you don't want to do the HEX edit. Personally, I wouldn't waste my time with this one. I'm interested if anyone else has success with this.

    Changed over my router to N 2.4GHz only and my Evo connected just fine. Testing 5GHz

    No Go on the 5GHz but did have success running N in 2.4GHz.

    what speed (exactly) are you connecting at? Are you using encryption?

    Thanks! I've rooted with unrevoked. Would that suffice? Sorry but I'm not even sure what recovery mode is! Stay away?

    Will this make wireless tethering faster for connected devices with wireless-N?

    i had a g router i was using a few days ago and it would work but always lose connection eventually. but my router was old, cheap, and lame and it was expected. i guess i shouldn't be concerned since this doesn't affect me. just got confused by the post i guess.

    also in response to skpd my battery does not drain quickly when running wifi on n. it seemed superior. my battery lasted 24 hours with light/moderate usage with mobile network and wifi both on, 4g off.

    Oh my..the dude did not even mention anything about 3G/4G.

    He was comparing wifi G/N.

    And how much more of a battery drain is N over G? I'm sure there is some as the data speeds have increased but at what cost?

    How do you know this? Seems like the Evo has the hardware for N and mine is connecting to my router which I set up in N only mode........so how is this still just G?

    Not saying you are wrong but just trying to understand why you say it will only operate in G mode.
