Hi Kevin,

576kbps is the total wire speed achievable (in theory) for the ADSL connection you have, and is the speed that most modems/routers report. This does not however take into account ATM protocol overheads, which brings the speed down to around 512kbps.
In reality, when IP overheads and other conditions such as contention and line quality are taken into account also, the actual speed is normally about 400-460kbps.

Regards,
Richard
