Internet ADSL Connection

I have a speedtouch 780 wl router. I was just wondering what is the differance between internet connection and dsl connection. The reason I ask is that when I check my broadband connection on my router it shows differant timings i.e dsl connection 2 days 4 hours internet connection 4 day 7 hours. I thought these were the same dsl and internet can anyone explain the differance.

Re: INTERNET &DSL CONNECTION

if you go to DSL connection and click on "details" you will get the information related to your connection to the exchange but if you go to Internet Services (that is what it says in my 585) and click on "view more" then "details" that is the information related to your connection to PlusNet.
It is possible to retain your DSL connection but lose the Internet Connection

Re: Internet ADSL Connection

So the dsl connection is to the exchange and the internet connection is to my isp. But how can i be connected to my isp if i loose my dsl connection (telephone exchange connection).

Re: Internet ADSL Connection

Hi
Just a guess, and it may be a rubbish one.
Does the higher figure reflect the total time you've been connected?
