Final update. Good news!
Surprisingly, it was a faulty connection. I noticed that the Asus router light was blinking off and on. So I pulled the network cable out put it back in...the light turned off. I went to check on my PC, and noticed that the network cable did not "snap" into the ethernet port. So once I got it to snap. Everything is now working.
Just did a speed test and I am at 51/5!
Thanks everyone for helping me.
