Disconnect as host.

I've noticed this while playing gears of war 1 and 2. If I am the host of the game my internet will constantly drop and I will be unable to play. However, if I am just joining a session (basically playing with someone else as host.) I am completely fine. No disconnects at all. At the time of this post I have 

 

ISP: AT@T

MODEM: 2 WIRE 2701

INCOMING SPEED: 7039 KBPS

OUTGOING SPEED: 508 KBPS

NOISE MARGIN: 27.0

Is there anything I can do to fix this problem? Or do I need to call my ISP for help? Thanks in advance!

Your upload (outgoing) is rather low for hosting.  Decent host upload speeds generally start around 1000KBPS (1MB).

Well here's something odd I found out. I stayed with my mother a couple of days ago and hosted a public koth on gears 2 PERFECTLY. She has the exact same isp and modem. Her outgoing speed is only 382 KBPS. So I'm kinda at  a loss to why I'm having problems. There's no lag when I host at my home. I just completely disconnect from the internet

Interesting, 382KBPS seems really low for host but if it worked for you, great.  Host won't lag.

Well I'm not there often, so I can't really take advantage of it. I need to try to see whats wrong here and fix it because it is beyond aggravating when I try to host games for friends or when I'm chosen to be a host for public and I get disconnected

Here are two links to some information you may find useful, first ones about not being able to connect and disconnecting, second is about improving XBox Live speed:

Give them a read and see if they help.
