download speed?

what should the typical download for a 512kbp/s adsl line be? because all i can reach is 30 kbp/s which is like old 256 kbp/s connection. This is apparently an "update" from AOL!!!! but i'm not convinced.....anybody got/had update and works? please do say

About 480 kb/s would be fair (60 KBytes/sec). It does sound like yours is running half speed.

How are you connecting, USB or ethernet? If you are using an onboard lan adapter this could be the problem (as I recently found out on my comp.)

usb, aol has given me the reason of spyware as the problem, but i run spybot daily and get rid of any before i come online so.......has anybody's update been successful in terms of doublind the speed?

i obtained the results and done it about 10 times. the results were between 120 kb/s - 238 kb/s max. this is making me angry because it seems nothing has been updated like they indicated!!!! ARGH!!!!!!

Again I'm being stupid but I have always been lead to believe that it all depends on what speed the sender can download at !!!!
