Artificially low internet speeds

I have gigabit speed from my ISP with a Wi-Fi 6e router (Linksys Hydra). On my phone I'm easily able to reach between 600 and 1,100 mbps depending on time of day.

However, my desktop seems to be artificially limited to no more than 200 Mbps, but frequently only 80 Mbps or even 50 Mbps. This is the case on Ethernet (CAT 8 cable), the Wi-Fi built into my motherboard, and the Wi-Fi 6e PCIe card I have, as I have tested all three.

I'm on Windows 11 if that matters.
