Laptop wireless

I have an old ThinkPad (6/7yo, XP Pro) which will not connect to our broadband via wireless (cable OK). Support says it’s just too old. However, I noticed that 802.11b/g networks still give a box to enter the netkey whereas our ‘n’ doesn’t. Would a ‘Wireless N USB adapter’ work?
It’s not worth spending a lot but it would be nice to get it on wireless. If this is an option I’m looking at these 2:

Dlink Wireless N150 USB Adapter DWA-125

Netgear N300 Wireless USB Adapter WNA3100

I assume the N300 is faster but would it make much difference?

TIA

Thanks for response but that think that's a bit too cheap (especially as they offer free post and packing).
Ok, but i use these "cheap" ones without any problems! Begrudge paying PC World £30 when the parts probably all come from the same factory anyway!
