I'm on aol internet provider but the line that i'm using is bt telephone line, i subscribe a 2 gig internet connection, my question is:

1. what should be the expected connection should i get?
2. what do you mean by tx and rx on my modem?there are two arrows which shows tx=288 and rx=which is 2274.
3. I run my pc specs as:

If AOL is providing you a 2G setup, we need to talk.... :tazz:

If you meant 2Mbps, your DSL connection spd should be 1-2Mb (down) & 200-256 (upstream). In your case, you are getting 2274Mbps down & 228 up. Not too shabby, mate.

P2E

If you are getting broadband from AOL (you have my condolences) & your speeds are likely fine - no need to torture yourself and call.

If your are getting your b/b from another ISP (BT?), dump AOL (& you have my congratulations), bug bomb your computer, wash your hands & enjoy. :tazz:

Thats it mate.
