will i gain speed by updating to a newer and faster router from netgear dg834pn?

I am stummped with all the latest developments especially in relation to wireless routers and speed. My bb is about 6mb download and router is set to auto 108mbps but wireless devices show 54mbps max. I want to stream video to a tv using the new apple tv gizmo and was wondering would I bnefit by getting say the Cisco Linksys E4200 and that is supposedly to to 400mbps.

Is it worth the money and will I get any benefit? Also does it mean the receiving device has to be able to handle the higher speeds as well viz is the apple tv gizmo designed to handle any range of speeds?

In a nutshell should I upgrade?

thank you, I have been doing a bit of reading and your answer clarifies a lot. I thought the netgear was N as well!! but it looks as if I bought it in 2006!!

And a good tip about other pc's I'll make sure everything is off when trying the apple TV. I will make sure next router is N as well.
