    Did I do that right? I see it spiked a couple times, jumping to 107ms and then 118ms before losing connection. Anyways, it's even worse now since getting my new modem which is an ARRIS Touchstone (supplied from Charter) it drops out every few minutes.

    Again you'll have to use FF or IE if you use Chrome because java based tools like this won't work in Chrome :).

    Alright, so from the results (tested with & without my router) what can be fixed?

    I'd change your DNS to something like Googles, and run the test again (Post results again)

    8.8.4.4
    8.8.8.8

    Or any other public DNS of your choice

    OpenDNS

    208.67.222.222
    208.67.220.220

    Change that either in your router, so that it affects all connected devices, or in the IPv4 properties of the network adapter you use to connect your PC to the router

    Apparently I was just plugged into a bad port in the cabled box. Since switching over to a different port the connection hasn't dropped out.
