Arrow What's my internet connection speed?

My task management says 54Mbps. So Which one should I select in the internet connection speed options?

modem - 56k
DSL > 256k
DSL > 768k
DSL/Cable > 2M
Cable/Fiber > 10M

btw, I'm using a modem (But I've accidentally switched a wireless connection to it. Don't know how to get the wire connection back.)

With no-one else online, go to this website and perform a test (In fact, perform 2!)
http://speedtest.net/

Then choose the closest.

the 54Mbps you see in task manager is the speed between the computer and the modem/router not the actual internet speed,as second opinion says go to speedtest.net or better yet find out if your isp offers a similar service.

Both, but in this case the download speed is the value you are looking for.
