wireless router

I'm getting internet cable service and it has 128Kbps downstream bandwidth.
Yea, I know it's bad but that's only available in my city.

Do I need faster router than 11Mbps?

The reason I'm asking is that I read somewhere even they say 11Mbps it's not
really 11Mbps.

Well, same token, it might not be 128Kbps downstream bandwidth. :-(

Thanks.
Jay

I think you may be confused, the upstream is probably 128 and the down
stream should be considerably more.
I have never heard of 128 down stream, you must realize that's only twice as
fast as dial-up.
To answer your question on the router, most will handle any down stream
bandwidth available so 11 Mbps is no problem as no cable provider exceeds
that.

Well, with 11Mbps wireless you'll be lucky if you actually get more than
about 5Mbps of real data throughput, but this is still 40x your internet
connection speed. OTOH, 11Mpbs wireless is outdated now so if you have a
choice I'd try and get 54Mbps instead.

I stand corrected I checked the link you are not confused. I would not get
this service.
This is not true cable service, I get 3 mbps for 40 dollars a month

unless it is misprinted and should read 128 KBps that would be close to 2
mbps.
