So I have my Raspberry Pi 3B with 802.11n wifi support built in, awesome. I have my own personal router, not something on loan from the cable company/ISP, another awesome.
But that is where the awesome ends because the router is probably about half as old as I am and I am a college junior... It only supports B and G wifi and so I am trying to figure out if this is the end of my router/wifi connected Pi dreams or if there is some way I can make the 802.11n muddle through with what I have just at a lower speed.
For the record, at this point I am not even completely interested in finding/implementing a fix because I have ethernet cables running all over my apartment so it is not the end of the world if I can't get my pi on wifi but I am genuinely curious as to if anyone else has had or solved this problem. At this point all of my internet research so far pretty much points to the opposite scenario, having an N or AC level router and whether or not it would work with other older a, b, and g tech.
Any insights or additional thoughts to this situation would be appreciated.
