The Zeppelin Air comes with an 802.11 (g) card. Does anyone know the effect of this on an 802.11 (n) wireless network? Perhaps, only when in use?

It depends on the router. Apparently, the Airport Extreme can handle mixed g/n connections without letting the g drag the whole thing down. But the Airport Express is not as sophisticated. You'd have to find out from other manufacturers how their routers fair.

It downgrades 802.11n rates to 802.11g rates while in use. Just like other G devices, nothing drastic.
