Is it happening everywhere? Netflix? Audio only or video?

Do a speedtest, post the result

Pretty much everywhere. Trying to watch Crackle is almost impossible. Netflix can be better. Standby for speed test results.

PC issue probably. How is terrible? Buffering or very choppy (stop and go) video?

As for internet, there should be no issues with that speed.

Yes. Even when listening to internet radio.

PC issue for sure. What happens if you use different browsers?

As much as it's a taboo thing to use, what happens in IE or MS Edge (if you are using Win10)?

Try clean booting too, to see if something running in the background is causing the ishoo.

Are there any other devices to totally rule out internet?

Negative. I think this poor old machine is just not built for great streaming experiences. Sux worse considering I recently found a site to stream Calgary Flames games.
