Default Wireless N

I have 2 Linksys Wireless N routers cascaded to provide wireless coverage throughout a basement and 3 floors of my house. Can't say wheither it gives a faster connection, but I do get good signal. Only thing is I have to manually swap between routers to ensure I am on the stronger signal when moving from ground floor to attic. I have also used the QoS option on my router to give my Curve Mac address highest priority for bandwidth.

No
First there is no way to use a USB adaptor because there is no way to connect it in to the device. Then, even if you could, there are no drivers you could install to allow the OS to use it.

As the previous poster mentioned, it is not USB capable from a wireless standpoint. It will work wirelessly with an "N" router, but not a "N" speeds. I think the BB operates on 802.11b, and will work on b/g/n networks.

even if u were able to get drivers for an N adaptor..or in some magical way got N capability. the Blackberry would not surf any faster...the speeds that you see now are a result of the internet being processed by the RIM servers, then your ISP, then your router, then the tiny little processor in your device...in my opinion, you'd see no difference

Besides, does anyone here have greater than a 50mbps internet connection?
The only possible thing I can think he wants to speed up is his connection to his computer? If that even makes sense...Unless the OP is confused as to why his voice calls are not very clear. Look into UMA, QOS, Etc, and you will be enlightened to that subject.
