Does wireless max transfer depend on cable modem max trans?

I'm trying to decide whether to purchase a wireless router with gigabit ethernet, and was wondering if gigabit ethernet only works with a comparable cable modem. The max transfer rate of my current modem is 38 mpbs, and my cable provider caps the download speed at 10 mpbs (not sure if I'm mixing apples and oranges regarding the download speed and max transfer rate. In addition, when I check the website testmyspeed.com, it appears that my download speed is only 5.8 mps.
I'm a bit confused by all of these figures, and any help would be great.
