What model "modem" do you have? Is it perhaps actually a gateway?

I'm using a newer Motorola Surfboard Docsis modem, supposed to be good over 100Mbps.
That is the manafacture of the modem, not the model. The model number will be printed somewhere on it like "SB6121" or " SBG6700-AC" as seen in picture below.
All I really need to know though is if it has more then 1 ethernet port on the back. If it does, it is NOT a modem but some kind of gateway, and possibly causing your problem.

Trikein I know the difference between a modem and a router.
I don't know what you know until/unless I ask. Having dual NAT is a very common problem so it was worth asking IMO.
"I have done some pings on 188.8.131.52 and seen some packet loss and long pings. Not every ping but often enough to happen at least once or twice during a normal business call. "
Could you post that data? A tracert would be most helpful. I was going to suggest QoS but it is prudent to make sure you don't have any network or ISP issues first. QoS can patch a hole that would better fixed.
::Edit:: Perhaps I misunderstood the purpose for your post. Were you looking for help troubleshooting the issue or were you just looking for help finding a tool that will in-turn help you troubleshoot the problem alone?

I have a 50Mbps
Last but not lest and probably not very helpful, but my 2 cents worth is.....
Just because you have 50Mbps that doesn't mean you have a good ping or a stable connection, my self i have 7Mbps ADSL and no VOip problems with my ISP, your ISP might be fast but might all so be slop at the same time and their only selling point is max bandwidth.
As well last i checked a Cable internet setup is shared with other users were as a ADSL is single user and dedicated.
As well if your not uploading/downloading anything you don't need 50Mbps.
7Mbps with a good connection and ping would be better and cost you less at the same time.
If your using quality network hardware all the way around and the same with lan cards "forget integrated junk" then i don't know what to say, but most of the time when i see people that bug me about lag and connection problems their all so using junk hardware, imho junk hardware and lame connections go hand in hand.
I don't know about the modem or the router, don't feel like doing research on that topic but their not the super cheap kind so that counts for at lest something, that leaves the lan cards and cables.
