Wished Asus provided a detailed User Manual describing each setting on the N66u router web pages so that I can avoid asking these newbie ?s Do we need "b/g Protection" checkmarked (under - Advanced Settings - Wireless/General tab) if we only have n clients?

You can turn it off and your wireless speed will likely improve... http://www.oreillynet.com/pub/a/wireless/2003/08/08/wireless_throughput.html

Starbuck, Thanks for advice and link. Turned it off, no degradation or perceived impact so that's good.

Would this have anything to do with my inability to connect Honeywell WIFI thermostats to my new AC5300 router? >

No.
I suggest to leave the Wireless Mode setting to Auto and try again.
In recent firmware versions they broke the b/g protection setting, such that you cannot disable it which should not be a problem.
