    Horrible speeds on Motorola SB5101 but tests say otherwise

    First off, I am new to this forum and would like to say that I am happy to be able to join you all. I hope that I can give useful input to other people's problems in the future. Thank you for having me here and I hope we all get along just fine. Anyways, now to get to the point...

    I checked my speeds at bandwidthtest and and they both say I'm getting about 3Mbps on my download which is okay with me, but my upload speed is moving at a whopping 0.35Mbps leaving my ping in shambles at about 200ms. After that just for the hell of it, I went to and it's telling me my ping is only about 25ms with only 9ms jitter and a 0% packet loss. WTF? So I figured I should probably run a tracert in a command prompt just to make sure and here's what I got:

    Tracing route to []
    over a maximum of 30 hops:

    1 23 ms 144 ms 31 ms
    2 94 ms 22 ms 16 ms
    3 36 ms 89 ms 52 ms []
    4 41 ms 116 ms 62 ms []
    5 49 ms 86 ms 56 ms []
    6 16 ms 58 ms 47 ms
    7 74 ms 72 ms 48 ms
    8 49 ms 57 ms 51 ms []
    9 90 ms 102 ms 80 ms []
    10 58 ms 46 ms 91 ms []
    11 60 ms 102 ms 49 ms []

    When I'm on xbox live, it also says I'm getting about a 200ms ping. So I guess I'm asking, how do I know what speed I'm really getting? And if my speed is indeed that bad, how can I fix it? Any help here?
