If stuff works fine, you generally don't need to update it. This goes double for the BIOS as if a BIOS flash goes wrong your system is effectively written off.
The wireless device needs to be N-Grade compatible for it to connect at N-grade speeds. That being said the router needs to be in N-Grade mode too. It's kind of like saying the car will do 130mph but I get pulled over by PC Plod if I go over 70 on the motorway, how can I keep going at 130Mph.

That being said, the maximum data throughput is more for internal network speeds - it won't make your internet any faster.
