    So I just got a standard wireless G router for my apt. I was wondering if I can get the full speed of it with an Intel Pro/Wireless 2200BG card that I have built in. I heard that having a B/G might slow things down a lil :(

    If any B device is connected to your network, it will slow all other devices down. But since your computer can switch between B and G, just tell it never to use B mode even if the signal is shitty, and then your network's speed won't get degraded.

    ignore deuse; He reads things, takes them as fact, and then over-complicates everything.

    Depends on your specific card. Look in the manual.

    Like Jolly said, you'll be fine. Besides...unless you have fiber with ungodly bandwidth, the bottleneck will be your WAN connection, not in your LAN connection.
