Broadband upgrade

I just recently upgraded my broadband to 100mbps/5mbps from charter. I have been doing lots of speed test and I am getting around 25mbps-30mbps/4mbps-5mbps only. My upload seems to be hitting that speed but its my download that doesnt even come close to what its suppose to be. I currently have a linksys cm100 cable modem, a linksys e2500 router, and a linksys ae2500 wireless adapter. My router and wireless adapter both have dual band and it seems it should be able to hit those numbers. When I look at my wireless network connection speed its at 300mpbs. Now for my cable modem its still docsis 2.0, do you think I need a docsis 3.0 cable modem? How will I be able to see 100mpbs download speeds, do I need a docsis 3.0 cable modem to reach those speeds?

Check with your provider. In the UK, Virgin cable's standard modem will only handle up to 25mbps, to get anything above 30mbps they supply a different modem, so that's the first thing to check.
