I don't know what happened but all of the sudden (about two days ago) my wifi is absolutely horrible. I asked my coworker if it's working fine for him and he says it's fine. I used Ookla's speed test and get a ping of about 8ms but it doesn't even finish the test. It times out. I get internet here and there but nothing close to even allowing me to use Facebook and Facebook chat. Here's some information for you.

So I tried to get around the wifi issue and plug in an ethernet cord, but it doesn't even detect the ethernet cord. Here's some more info.

Thanks for the help.
