Wait, you test results showed 4.5M? If you have 6.0, that's the most you will get probably at your address via DSL.
My speed test result : Download = 4.510 Mbps. (IT SHOULD BE 6Mbps.... T.T BUT MY ACTUALL SPEED IS NOT EVEN CLOSE TO 1Mbps) Upload = 611.99 kbps. I'm very confused the download speed showed on connection test page compare to my actually speed. I'm sure the file that I downloaded and my firewalls are have no problems, because I was using comcast internet service just before the AT&T. Any ideas? BTW, There is a Router/Modem setting page "http://192.168.1.254/", are there any options that I can turn on so I can make the speed faster?

If you are getting that on the downloading test (via a download, FTP, etc.) then you would be getting full speed. Most speed tests typically report between 4.5 to 5.1 respectively.
what about my REAL speed? 500-600KB/S is my actual speed...

its 6.0 mbps ( megabits) not MB/s (megabytes). 6.0bps is about 750kbs, so your speeds are almost cap.
