Help with antenna and cable

Hi Guys so here is my issue:

I have a WRT54G v6 router and I am trying to get higher speeds from a wireless network, I have set up a dish and a cantenna and is going really well about 18-22dbi gain which is very noticeable but I have a question, does an Ethernet cable speeds up the transfers? Like the Upload and download speeds will be faster? like a high speed cat7 or cat6 cable that can transfer data at much higher frequencies, Will that help? I have cat 5 and get around 13Mbps, will cat 6 get me 16 or 17? or the router can't handle it?.Also another question is how can I make the gain on the dish higher?.

I am using DDWRT

  1. In your case the Ethernet connection is not the bottleneck, your wifi is, so changing the Ethernet cable will make no difference.
  2. ok but changing router? like to an asus n16?
