Unless you're well away from all other 2.4Ghz wireless traffic (ex. a
house in a rural area -- I even have a slight overlap from my neighbors
out here), I don't think 802.11N is going to be the slightest bit useful
to you. Basically, it conflicts with everything in that band, as it
wants to use the entire thing. By comparison, 802.11b or 802.11g use
just under one third of the available range, so you'll tend to overlap
with less access points.
Have you tried forcing your cards into 802.11g mode? I didn't even
think any of the shipping 802.11n stuff was a final spec, but rather
slightly incompatible interpretations.
