    I wasnt sure where to post this but for the past couple months my internet has been running a little slower and I have been getting bad lag on XBOX LIVE. I am connected through a wired Linksys Router and have Charter cable internet.

    I went to speakeasy.com internet speed test and found that my download speed is 2938 kbps and my upload speed is 222kbps. Is there supposed to be such a large difference between the two and does have anything to do with my lagging connection?

    I also ran a diagnostic test on my computer and it says: [00000001] Broadcom NetXtreme 57xx Gigabit Controller - failed

    Yes there is normally a big difference between up and down speeds, with the upload being the slower. You will have to check with your ISP to find out what your are supposed to be getting. A broadband connection at your download speed usually has a cap of 512 up.

    As far as a diagnostic test on your adapter...have no clue what test you ran on it. Is it the adapter you are using to communicate here?
