Are those high speed consumer routers actually transmitt data as they claim?

I copied a link from linksys website about this high speed VPN router here. Has anyone used any gigabit broadband router? My current linksys WRT G54 doesn't seem that fast at 100Mbp.

Gigabit = 125 megabyte maximum theoritcal transfer rate

The actual max you'll see is probably 40-50MB continous with maybe 60-70MB burst speeds

and on the wireless side, connected to 802.11g you'll see 2-3MB (megabyte) continuous.. 802.11n around 20-25MB with burst around the 40MB range.

Is the 802.1n standard used in consumer router yet?

I am wary of buying a replacement router. My current router doesn't seem to be fast enough. I want 4x the current speed of my linksys router. Is that realistic expectation?

my router used to get 300kbyte/minute download while I surf the net. Now download speed reach snail pace of 50kbyte/min and my browser has difficulty loading yahoo webpage. I check the setting of router and it hasn't been changed. I disabled WEP encryption on it.
