still only getting 1mbps. I updated my Verizon DSL service to the enhanced version a few months ago, which offers 1.1-15 mbps of speed, but I'm still getting a measly 1mbps. I'm using a wireless connection with 2 laptops and a PS3. Would a wired connection give me mbps the enhanced version says it would?

Possibly. Get a good modem/router combo and use ethernet connection instead of wireless. See if that pushes your ISP's internet speed to its full or max potential.

If it doesn't work then you have a bs ISP.

Oh and what are the specs of your wireless network adapter? Like some may have a limit to what you can receive which is why you are getting low connection speeds.

Let's say for example your wireless network adapter has a limit of
1-5 mbps

Which is equivalent to.

0.125 MB/s - 0.625 MB/s
1/8 MB/s to 5/8 MB/s
since there are 8 megabits in every megabyte.

Unfortunately, Verizon seems to be the only service that's available in my complex. I want to update to Fios, but it's unavailable. Although, I was told by at least 2 Verizon employees, that if I want Fios installed sooner, instead of waiting for them, I just need to talk to my property owner.

How do I check Transceiver Statistics?

It also depends on your router's minimum and maximum connection received as well.

So specs of your router as well please.

Go to your laptop manufacturer's website and look up your laptop and check the specs.
It should say something about network adapter specs under the total specs.
