pc Ethernet connection very slow Open | Networking

I built a computer last week and everything is working just fine except for the internet, I have an Ethernet connection and my router is right next to my pc, I also have a wifi dongle that came with my asus b550 f gaming wifi motherboard, my speed test on the computer reads 40-50mbps on average but downloading games I'm not seeing anything over 6mbps, nothing else is connected to the router except my computer. Very frustrating, please help.

Chances are pretty good that is the speed of the server you are downloading games from unfortunately. If it's just that there's not much of anything you can do about it

Is the speed just bad when downloading games?

Yeah only bad when downloading games, I use steam and battle net just for cold war and they download at the same speed, i can't even play cold war because it's so slow which makes me think something is wrong

I'm not sure what it could be but there is definitely something wrong if the games are slow
