Cannot get 100mbps on Aironet 1250

With the help of my Cisco installation rep, we set up a wireless n network using Aironet 1250 Access Points.  I have two spread through the office to provide complete coverage.  Here is the problem.  Even on computers with 802.11n cards, we are only getting 54mbps responses.  In the cases where 802.11g is used, I understand this.  We are using WEP encryption for security LOL.  I am not concerned about the wireless security as much as I am concerned about the rate.  When I look at the station view for any client, the supported rates indicate everything from 1.0 to 54.0 mbps. Here is an example of teh Station View.

My question is am I missing something?  What are my options?  I need to get the speed up to 100mbps where ever possible.  Thanks in advance for any ideas.

We are using WEP encryption for security LOL.

If you want to enable 802.11n, you need to use WPA2/AES.
