|Networking being unreliable everywhere, like you describe, is a strong indication that you need a better SD card.

The Ethernet port not work 100% correctly in any site, youtube, google play, downloads etc, in Lubuntu have the same problem I thinks is the SD card.

Their 'freeware' nature is not something I really care about either way. What I do care about is the fact that the site you linked to lies about it.
Now the apk I show you are freeware in this case no need find a crack way for now just need install the app.
They claim to have 'Free' versions which are also 'Full' or 'Pro' versions, whereas the 'Pro' versions really are payware, not freeware. When a site lies about something like that it usually means that they've hacked the software, either just to 'liberate' it, or else to install malware. I'm not saying that I know either one to be true in this case, but I consider it suspicious enough to not download those versions. In fact I wouldn't even enable scripts on those web page (so I had to struggle with reading them in Spanish (I think it was... ;) )).
Again: I don't really care about the piracy issue, but I won't trust sites who lie like that, or trust their software.
That could be a problem with the emulation of that game (some are not compatible with emulators), or there could be a problem with the 'ROM' file format of some games.
In some games installed no work the click, I press left mouse click but the games don't start, in others games work perfect.
That will probably make a big difference, so let's put this discussion on hold until you've tried it.
But need change the SD to tell if work ok the google play for now work slow the internet port.
Now I am waiting some weeks to get the SD Class 10

Perhaps a simile will explain that best.
I played Mario Kart in Android on the PI so I think the emulator is working OK. I too have a class 10 card though.
Does anyone know why the network would be bottle necked by the SD card? That doesnt make sense. Or is it the data the Pi is trying to save to the card?

Consider taking a modern computer, with a fast efficient 7200 rpm 1TB SATA HDD, and then replacing its hard disk with an old 20 GB HDD having been in use for 10 years, with an obsolete PATA interface using the low-end DMA modes, and beginning to show physical wearing out of parts of its magnetic surface, so that write operations are chancy. That's a functional equivalent of using a Class 4 SD card in hardware that needs a Class 10 SD card. (Perhaps a bit exaggerated, but not by much...)
And remember that writing to the SD card is something that happens in small scale all the time, not just when you're consciously storing a file on it, but as part of the ongoing operations of the operating system. It works pretty much like a modern OS on a real computer, because in essence that's what it is. Even Android is based on Linux, and even when you don't feel that the system is doing anything much there's a lot of background activity with service routines etc.
As for the networking effect, it's pretty obvious that most networking software, certainly both Google Play Store and normal web browsers, will be using SD card for caching purposes, and with that cache access slowed down everything else will be affected by it. And any data corruption will of course make the network software behave erratically, like deenbee describes.
