The first piece of information that needs to be gathered when troubleshooting slow cable modem performance is the prescribed class of service throughput limitations of the cable modem. When a cable modem comes online, it downloads a DOCSIS configuration file that contains operational limits for the cable modem, including the maximum upload and download rates. Under normal circumstances, the cable modem is not allowed to exceed these rates.

From the logs it looks like there is a lot of data flowing on port 445 which is the CIFS port. Probably users are doing file shares over VPN.
