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.

I would check around to see what your Ethernet port is rated at. My desktop was having the same issue and even though the chip was rated for 1gb/s the port itself was only rated for 100mbs. Ended up having to get a USB eth adapter and got my full 1gbs. Also make sure everything is updated.
