 It is kbps.  I am not running through the router right now.  The signal comes 
directly through the telephone line, through the DSL modem, to the computer.

I am probably getting the correct readings.  70 kpbs is within the 384 to 768 
range they supply when multiplying by 8 bits.  It is in the middle.  Just a 
month ago, I had a different service and usually received about 160kpbs.  The 
raised the rates past my ability to pay and I was downgraded.  It is quite a 
reduction 50% for $5 per month.

I guess this problem is solved, although not happily.  Thanks for your 
trouble.  The gain is I better understand this problem now.
