Ok I hook up my laptop to my modem with an Ethernet cable and then when I use wifi I use an Ethernet cable between the modem and the router correct ?

So whats wrong with that setup; what else could I use then Ethernet and why and would it be better and would I notice it being better ?    A friend mentioned something called " Network " then he dropped it when it couldn t explain it so am I missing something ?

Also when I use the modem my ISP speed is 58 gigs; just love that but then when I want to move about with the lap top I use a netgear  N600 and I get a huge over the top drop in speed down to 26 gigs !

Is that normal; do I need a better router to get better in sync with my Arris Modem or what ?      Can I speed up my router and if so how ? !      Just got a router this past week and was shocked at the huge speed drop off; using a router for the 1st time now to get mobile now and then .

Thanks for the help  .  .  .
