It should be 256Kbps (0.25 Mbps). The only way to increase it is to upgrade to a better package or change provider to one that offers a higher upload speed.


It's completely standard that upload speeds are much smaller than download speeds - that's what the A in ADSL means.

Yep sounds about right, its 2mbps down, 200kbps up. Chances are you are being disconnected due to the wifi to the Wii. Changing the channel helps a lot.
