    you know i am using dsl technology but wired (with wired modem) and my download/upload speed
    is 1024/256 Kbps

    so i have seen some products of airties
    on them it is written that some have 125 Mbps wireless broadband internet (i suppose this was a
    wireless dsl modem)

    if the maximum download offered by our ISP is 4 Mbps , what does 125 Mbps wireless broadband internet mean?

    It means the speed on the wireless LAN is rated at that speed.

    It means the device has the capability to connect to the internet, in other words it has a modem in it. 8)

    I will try to make it sound simple

    You have a card on your pc that is attached to an ariel this send and receives signals out to or from a router which is connected to the telephone line that is wireless broadband.

    I suspect you may have misread the description. It is possible that you are describing a DSL_modem/router/WiFi access point using something like 802.11n

    The 125Mbps will be the clockrate for the Wifi part. The DSL modem will be limited to the available speed from the ISP.

    The LAN part will be probably 100Mbps.

    The WAN part will be limited by the line.

    I doubt it. 125Mbps is not a standard speed for LANs.

    But it is a possible speed for 802.11n
