    You want to test on wired if you can wireless can have massive effects on your connection and it makes troubleshooting hard.

    Next you want to ping your router likely something like 192.168.0.1. Since it pings very fast normally I would use the -t option so it runs until you stop it. If you see issues on this ip especially if its a wired connection either your router has a issue or your PC does. You would want to try another machine to see if it is the router or the machine.

    If all looks good then run tracert to some location. Now ping the second ip in the trace. This should represent your connection to the ISP. This is the most common location for errors. Most times the ISP needs to fix this but there could be wire issues in your house
