Will a Linksys WUSB54G 802.11g Wireless USB Network Adapter be compatiable with a Netgear WGU624 802.11g 108Mbps Wireless Firewall 4-port Router?

Hi Everyone:

        In response to my desire to upgrade my wireless network, I purchased a Linksys WUSB54G 802.11g Wireless USB Network Adapter from gearxs.com.  They also have a great deal on a Netgear WGU624 802.11g 108Mbps Wireless Firewall 4-port Router.  Realizing the USB Network Adapter is by Linksys and the router is Netgear, will they still be compatiable with one another?  If so, I will go ahead and secure the purchase tonight.

         Any shared insights to this question will be appreciated.  I look forward to hearing from everyone.  

        Thank you

It should work fine. My network at home is mixed from Linksys, Netgear, Airlink and on B, G, N modes. My router is Airlink 101 (108), wireless adapters for laptops are Linksys 54 and also PCMCIA netgear card.
Netgear WGU624 router supports 802.11a/b/g and WUSB54G USB Network Adapter supports standards IEEE 802.11b, 802.11g, USB 1.1, USB 2.0.

As the both products supports 802.11 b/g standards and you have not configured one device to strictly work with g and other with b; they would work fine with each other.

Thank you.

Hi Everyone:

      Thanks so much for the followups.  It is certainly nice to know the various wireless protocols can be mixed and still be compatiable with one another.

       Many thanks once again.
