    My NETGEAR router contains only the Ethernet cable ports.

    I should get the wireless Ethernet cable.

    Not going to make your speeds faster through the WAN. It may for over your network, but you would need hardware that supports Wireless AC or AX and wired ports that support 1000mbps.

    ISPs also cap upload speeds to discourage users from running servers. They also (or at least used to) block incoming HTTP port 80 requests for the same reason.

    I know because I ran into this 20 years ago when I was setting up an Apache HTTP server for my family to use to share messages and photos. Had to move the port off of 80 and suffered with the capped 2GB upload speed which has crept up as I've upgraded my service until it's now 20+GB which is very acceptable for what it's used for.

    For a bit more exploring, I unchecked Enable Wireless Router Radio in the 2.4GHz section in the Advanced Setup - Wireless Settings section. I do not know, if there is something else for me to turn off, in the order to speed up the Internet connection.

    I also turned off Enable WMM (Wi-Fi Multimedia) Settings (2.4GHz b/g/n). Should I check Turn Internet Access QoS On? Plus, I should be able to do something with my ISP.

    I am not sure about the Mac Address Filtering, because I do not use a Mac computer. All of us in this forum are using Windows 10.

    You should test wired, instead of wireless.

    Test when the network is quiet (you are the only one using the network).

    If you have QoS set on the router, turn it off for testing.

    Some routers have SQM settings...others require router firmware like OpenWRT.

    Use the Desktop version of Ookla's SpeedTest...it takes the browser out of the equation.

    And, should I disable UPnP to speed up the Internet connection?

    - - - Updated - - -

    All of the MTU values by default in my case.

    And, this includes the settings from my router menu.

    It does not matter what you use, wired or wireless 2.4 GHz or 5 GHz, that is still your internal network.
    I have a Netgear Router so I know what those settings are, none of those settings will change the uplink speed allocated by your ISP. That is a maximum as indicated by a speed test.

    You could put in a higher value in that QoS box showing "256 Kbps" but it would not be any use.
    It may say "(Optimised for gaming)" in brackets on your Router model but that is just marketing blurb.
    Ping is more important than speed for online gaming.
    Your Ping is broadly the same as mine.

    "And, should I disable UPnP to speed up the Internet connection?" No difference that is your internal network.
    "All of the MTU values by default in my case."
    They are on mine, I have changed them for testing purposes but again no detectable change.
    As has been said repeatedly it is your ISP that sets upload speed.

    It won't change the provisioned speed, but if the OP is getting way less than that, it's an issue.

    You have still not told us what your ISP says you download and upload speeds should be. Until you provide that, I quit.
    You're just wasting your time until you know what you are supposed to be getting.

    Take the time to call them and find out. You've already wasted a week fiddling with stuff that makes no difference.
