Xbox360  wired directly to Shaw Modem (Cisco DPC3825).

Light on front of Modem Port 1 (Xbox connection) flashes orange. Where as all other computers hardwired in, the ports flash green!!!

Current Shaw Service: Broadband 50Mbp/s (although shawspeedtest says I'm on Broadband 100.

 

Speed Test accessed via Internet Xplorer on Xbox360... www.bandwidthplace.com  website

d/l:  1.52Mbp/s       u/l: 1.99Mbp/s    Ping:  --

Provider: Shaw Communications

shawspeedtest.ca: 50.12Mbyte d/l ,  2.1Mbp/s u/l  Service shows on my Laptop hardwired

Bandwidthplace.com: shows 3.28Mbp/s d/l   2.9Mbps u/l   to USA-Chicago IL on laptop hardwired

 

 

 

Why is the modem restricting bandwidth to the Xbox360?

At these slow rates, Netflix is barely functional, and lots of lag in online games to the point its almost un-usable.
