    I hate the D-Link wireless router that
    Verizon gave me with my Fios service. It
    delivers a rather weak signal throughout
    my house.

    I bought a D-Link 710 range extender, but
    after hours on the phone with Customer Support
    it was deemed incompatable (although it was
    listed as being compatable.

    I am very interested in the new Linksys Wireless G
    routers. The range on these things are supposed
    to be very good.

    The problem? My laptop has Wireless "B" and
    I don't feel like buying a new card.

    I am more interested in the range than speed.
    Will this new wireless "G" router be backward
    compatable with my "B"?

    Thanks!

    Yes it is compatible and g has greater range and wider bandwidth than b.

    Something like this would more than fit your needs...

    Usually you do get the best result by going with the same manufacturers gear on both ends, even though everything is supposed to be compatible; you might want to consider an upgrade for the laptop too.
