Even though you are using eithernet it's plugged into a WAP - so, you are using wireless.
Yes, I bet that's the issue. That's not a very fast and with wireless your pings could be all over the place. 20-60 one second 200-600 the next - BOOM! headshot! ;)

Haha dont know if I mentioned it, but I remember my brother complaining about something with "ethernet" in it the other day and that he is "lagging" so he had to start playing CSGO again because of how bad his FPS was getting on rust survival so it could be that yeah. Also I didnt have any FPS / Lag at all, no fps stutters nothing on The Long Dark. Whats the best way of having faster WiFi? maybe upgrading the router? or is it getting a whole new internet provider in general, I thought ours was considered one of the best with our provider "BT broadband" at least in my country Northern Ireland
 
It won't be pretty but if you could somehoe get a straight ethernet connection from the router to your computer that should help. How much depends on the speed/stability improvement.
CAT 5e or CAT 6 ethernet can run up to 100m in ideal conditions. Naturally, only get the length of cable that you need to get to your computer.
