Router connection on the wired side is fast....50-75mb download according to Speedtest.

What speed internet are you paying for? 75Mbps download speed seems extremely high.

"75Mbps download speed seems extremely high"
200Mb starts to be the norm in western countries. Unless you live in the middle of nowhere...

Check the wireless settings of the router. Did you set a pass-phrase and WPA-2 encryption? Possible you have the whole neighborhood connecting to your router.

West of what? I'm in NY & have DSL,10Mbps down/1Mbps up. "Ultra fast" cable in my area is 50Mbps down/5Mbps up. FiOS isn't available because there's no fiber optics in place & won't be in place for the foreseeable future.

riider: Cable in Queens NY has been 50Mbps basic and up to 300Mbps (100Mbps in the past) if you want to pay for more. I had the 50Mbps which was never really that and this last year I swapped out the router for a newer one because they offered 100Mbps at the same price but the router was too old. (Time Warner, now Spectrum). If you are in Manhattan, Long Island, or upstate, you have a different service but should look into today's options they have. DSL is too slow but if you get cable TV then internet is not expensive and better/faster.

You have to be a little bit crazy to keep you from going insane.

Now to the problem:
Have you tried unplugging your router for a minute and while it is rebooting, restart your computer or device? Sometimes this is all that is needed to get a poorly working Wifi to work properly again.

It is password protected, and nearest neighbor is 1/2mile away, so I kinda doubt anyone else is using it.

What you're talking about is your LAN side of things. As in, a wired LAN computer as versus a wirelessly connected computer. Take the same wirelessly connected device, disable it's wireless interface, enable the wired interface and connect it with a network cable and test. What results do you get from a bandwidth test?

The issue appears to be internal within your LAN between router and wireless client. Check to ensure clients have the most up-to-date drivers for their interfaces.

Also, understand that wireless is inherently susceptible to lag and latency that doesn't affect wired connections. Wired will always out perform wireless.

It matters not how straight the gate,
How charged with punishments the scroll,
I am the master of my fate;
I am the captain of my soul.
