    Default Slow connection! Help?

    Hello I am a huge pc gamer and for months now I have had insanely slow connection/horrible PINGs. I was just wondering if anyone might have a solution to help? Thanks in advance!

    Info:
    I have Broadband Internet with Download speeds of 20mbs (i usually average 3)
    I have the Netgear R6300 router (Its a really good router and pretty new!)
    I play on a laptop and my speeds using Wifi are HORRIBLE! So i usually play via Ethernet plugged into my router, which still isnt great.
    I have a decent Laptop that is fully capable of running almost any game so I dont think its my computer but its not out of the realm of possibilities.

    - Lock your wifi.
    - Use a direct connection, kill the wifi.
    - Connect your modem to the first jack where your phone line comes into your house, less interruptions.
