There is often speed discrepancies when testing your internet speed using WiFi and Ethernet from the same source
, but depending on the router and Wireless Ethernet Card you are using, you can get some results that may or may not surprise you. If you want to find out the end all best your speed can get, my suggestion would be connection straight via modem (not only does this make sense, but it also ensures your phone, etc aren't picking off your bandwidth), pick a time when you think your ISP doesn't have many users (I find between 3-6 AM to be best), manually ping to find the quality server you want and go for it. Speedtest.net is never going to yield the perfect results.
