I have a Cisco DPC3008 modem and a Belkin N600 DB router to have wireless connection in my house. I also use ethernet cables from the LAN ports on the router to connect my Xbox, PC and Wii U to the internet.
I have been running http://stage.results.speedtest.comcast.net/result/
Why would my Router cause such a "bottle kneck" and I loose so much speed just from running LAN line to my PC.
If I need to get a new router I will

I opened my Belkin setting and disabled the intellistream function. Thats all i did and it went from 17.5mbps Down/1.75Mbps Up to http://stage.results.speedtest.comcast.net/result/

Thanks to BiGxChucK who solved my issue with "xfinity blast" as well. This may not be a Comcast problem after all I've sent an email to Belkin support (as this is a router feature) Lets wait and see.
Steps to disable:
From router management page: (i.e. like http://192.168.2.1)
Media Features ==> Intellistream ==> Click disable ==> Apply
I was getting ~20Mbps. Now its blasting at 60Mbps and upload went from 2 to 11Mbps
My router details: Belkin N750 N+ Router (F9K1103)

Yeah don't enable Intellistream. Basically what is supposed to do is give your devices equal upload and download speeds so that not one device has the upper hand on download/upload but in fact it's really a lousy feature that will cause you to get slow speeds. Sometimes the speedtest feature that is supposed to measure ping, upload and download won't even work. When I did run it one time it gave upload and download speed of 10mbps. Basically it's supposed to be a traffic control for your router but it definitely slows performance so don't use it
