I used speedtest.net to check my ping ( not sure what that means) and douwnload speed and upload speed. Results were:
Ping = 26ms
Download = 10.19 mb/s
Upload = 2.05 mb/s

I do not know what is decent . My computer is a bit slow at times so I don't know if it's internet connection related or just my computer is slow? What do the numbers mean to people who know?

The Ping doesn't mean much unless it's really bad (high number). Yours is fine.

Whether the Download/Upload are decent depends on what you are supposed to be getting. My cable internet ISP provides 12 Mbps down/1 Mbps up service. My results minutes ago were 11.53/0.92. Those are very good. But if I were supposed to be getting 30/5 I'd be very upset.
