How do I determine if my computer can pick up N wireless signals from a new router?

Just bought a new Netgear N router to use with an iMac, HP Pavilion zd8000, and an older Gateway desktop -- do I need to buy a new N wireless card for the machines or can they accept the N signal?
Ron-QnA-MVP:

The router should be backwards compatible with the older units. You won't get them to play with N until you put N compatible cards in them.

Literally Speaking ™:

Damn it Ron we gotta stop meeting like this, lol.

:o)

Literally Speaking ™:

Check the docs that came with the N router, most of them are backwards compatible with G and B where B is likely what your older pc's have.

You can always just plug it all up and see if your pc's can find the wireless signal from the router.

Creeper:

I would first suggest that you "Turn it On..."
