Try changing your laptop IP to 192.168.1.2 with a 255.255.255.0 subnet and attempt to log in following the instructions in the link.

You can't draw meaningful conclusions from tests 1) taken a week apart, at different times, and to different servers, 2) in an environment that can be significantly influenced by factors other than the one under consideration, 3) that show a margin small enough to be explained by chance.
How you should have tested:
Remove devices and disable applications that may generate Internet traffic, since these may affect test results. With the router inline, run the speed test to a specific server three times in succession. Note performance for all three tests. If measurements are consistent (only minor variation), the results are probably valid. After this is done, remove the router and reconfigure the PC to dial in directly. Repeat the same tests, using the original server.
