So this is my internet speed using a wired connection (cable modem > mac)



Will a 802.11n router be able to deliver similar speeds wirelessly? (cable modem > router > mac)

How much speed should I expect to lose?

I might be wrong, but I believe that the speedtest is checking your WAN connection only - when I run speedtest over ethernet and wireless-n the results are comparable, but having said that my connection tops out at 5Mb/s. Oh how I wish for 20Mb/s...

Sorry, i don't follow. I don't know the significance of a 'WAN connection'

Your WAN connection is the connection up to your cable modem, i.e. the speed your ISP provides. WAN is short for Wide Area Connection. The wide area is the internet :-)
