On a side note, you may want to read your isp's TOS to verify that you will have permission to do this... Here in the states under COX cable TOS media sharing outside of home network, with residential service, is strictly forbidden and is cause for termination of services without notice

The word "Modem" on a diagram doesn't add any value, so yes, the model.

This could be your router limiting your bandwidt.

Many home DSL routers can't handle more than 15-20 Mbps throughput.
Do you have any security features enabled on it, like SPI or IPS? This will cramp the throughput even further.

Perhaps try connecting to the modem and seeing if you can get full speeds on there and yes I second the WNDR 3700

I plunged my computer right into the modem my upload speeds didn't change, however the download speeds are all over the place. Has to be either modem witch I cannot connect to, or my area, or signal strength

With cable broadband you will never see persistant upload\download speeds, as coaxile cable line is not suited for that type of connection, combined with sharing the trunk line to your isp's fiber connection line. If you are looking to get sustained upload speed, you would need to look into fiber optic connection, and if is even available for residential use.
Rated speeds on cable broadband are subject to optimal conditions where there are no other connections between you and isp's servers. Due to variable's that are uncontrolled your upload speed would probably never see the max, and even if it did, you would not see sustained rates... hate to burst bubble, but it is just not possible with cable broadband in residential service.

I don't even know where to start...

You're making the claim that coaxial cable isn't designed for data transmission?

You're also making the claim that the only way to get a sustained consistent speed is to switch to FTTx?


I worked for one of Canada's largest telecommunications companies for years, using the very same technology that you are belittling. Working as a head-end engineer I've seen my share of outlandish claims for poor connections. Some of which, you mentioned. In most cases, I'd say 75% of them, it's the wiring at the customer's premises. Issues like, poor cabling, poor termination and signal attenuation.

Claiming that it's the technology itself is unfounded and not needed, reminds me of the post from last week about how xDSL sucks because it uses the POTS. The OP needs to start with his line quality. He needs to log into his modem's diagnostic page and determine what his power levels are at. A quick Google search will show what is needed to determine this. Even a call to Shaw's customer service would be a logical step.

I did not mean to imply that coax broadband is horrible, only that sustained upload is virtualy impossible when sharing a connection with other customers on same trunk line. I have been a subscriber to both cable broadband, and Fiber... the only time I have ever seen a sustained upload data transmission rate is with fiber. Cable ISP's can not and will not give acurate sustained upload speeds... There are too many variables that will get in the way.
Even with a buisness class service of broadband internet over cable, they quote speeds "up to" not a definitive x.xMbps upload speed. Furthermore, If you look up cable broadband speeds, and contract descriptions, you will not once see anything stating a sustained speed.
