When I left click my wireless connection and click "Status" it shows my mbps coming in from my router to be 200 mbps. Am I really getting these speeds and if I was to connect an Ethernet cable that could support gigabit into my router would I get 200 mbps like the "Status" page says I'm getting through wifi.

If you were to connect to that router with a Cat6, you would get 1,000, not 200.
5 times as fast.

Of course, that is only between your PC and the router. Has nothing to do with your overall internet connection. Unless you have something fast and expensive.

That is the theoretical between you and the router.
If you were to connect via a Cat5e and use that, that 200 would increase to 1000.
