So I recently set up my new gaming PC. After everything is good to go, my ping is still low and download speed is still high from my fiber connection. I can play games with no problems, but all my browsers (firefox, chrome, edge) have issues playing videos. Firefox sometime says there is no internet connection on youtube. Chrome is super slow and buffers every video. Email opens very slow. It's a fresh install and I have no extensions yet and hardware acceleration doesn't seem to do anything. I had ZERO issues from my last PC with browsing. I'm also connected via ethernet so it has something to do with this PC.

Considering I can download games at high speeds with no problem, but have a hard time buffering videos. Is there possibly a program limiting bandwidth to any browsers? I've looked up a few options to try with my configuration but nothing seems to work. All drivers are currently up to date.

If I am on wifi my browser speed is very fast. Ethernet not so much, however this cable was working fine with my old PC a few days ago. Currently thinking of just getting a USB to ethernet adapter or possibly swap my flat ethernet cable because it may not meet specs and needs to be changed.
