I'm thinking about changing my internet provider to Verizon who touts a high-speed internet of 3.0 Mbps. However, I just checked my current connection and it says it's running at 400.0 Mbps! Here's the screenshot...

Am I misreading it? Would switching to Verizon be a drastic downgrade from my current internet provider?

the 1394 connection is not your internet connection...1394 is a reference to a firewire connection which can be made between two machines localy

the "local area connection" is the one you're connecting with...and i'd wager that it says 10mbps...but that's still not your internet speed...that's just the speed that your NIC is capable of

http://www.speakeasy.net/speedtest/ go there and run a speed test...that will tell you your actuall internet connection speed
