Getting 10 Mbps on a 100 Mbps Connection

I have two machines at home. One is getting a full 100 Mbps when next to my router according to Fast.com, however my gaming laptop, a Dell G5 5590, only gets 5-10 Mbps when sitting directly next to the router.

I have tried all I can think of so I am reaching out for help here. I sincerely hope someone can help me as this is affecting my teleworking capabilities and I am now fully remote due to this virus situation.

All of my drivers are up to date, I have tried changing my IP4/IP6 DNS to Google’s servers, I have nothing running in the background (my idle network usage is sitting at 0%).

This is what ping 8.8.8.8 -t looks like:
