comment Difference between pings in same house?
First - wired or wireless? Second - does your ping times to your gateway differ or are they the same? (Pinging usually to 192.168.1.1 or whatever your gateway is.)

comment Dell Inspiron 15 R n series
Yes, but if you specify what the actual device is, someone may be able to point to the manufacturer's website or other location. Without the info, no one can search.

You should add the exact network device your system has. Dell has a habit of having several cards that may go into a model. Go to the support site, search by your service tag number and get the info from the original configuration page.

By big brand, I mean Belkin, Belden, others that you normally would purchase through a large professional electrical supply house versus something you'd pickup at some sort of big box store (Walmart/Home supply..) Regarding the electrical standards - most LAN is covered under low voltage regulations which are more relaxed. Check your local regs - always. Regarding the conduit, most of the professional installs go through the wall, down and then turn again to go underground, come back up and go through the wall. You don't have exposure.

comment PSU Noise when turned off
Sure, could be the coil, but bad caps seem to be common. Both are sources of squealing noise. Either way, if you can locate it to the PSU, replace it. Most PSU's are not user serviceable.
