Sorry my bad, I checked and thats 4 mbps down and 2 mbps up that I am
My PC has "N" mode nic and I get 130 mbps wifi connection.
My www.speedtest.net test is 1.24 mbps down and .82 mbps up between
Cleveland Ohio and Angeles City Philippines. My ISP is Comclark.com
Angeles City Philippines.
So I come back to the question is the internet download speeds up to 38
mbps and upload speeds up 30 mbps of the Motorola SB5101u cable modem
acting as a bottleneck? Is there a better cable modem that is not
limited I should be asking my ISP if I can use?
