My up/down speed is much slower in media bridge mode.

The speeds should be comparable at the very least, right?
Is there anything glaringly wrong with my setup?
Let me know how/what I can share to help diagnose, thanks!

Welcome to the forums @Silentrizz.

It doesn't explain those single-digit speeds, but I notice the LAN connection is only at 100Mbps.

Please give us more information about your network (a diagram would be ideal, even a hand-drawn one).

Does using a different cable increase the connection speed and/or the speedtest(s)?

Thanks :) I've lurked for a while, but never set up an account.
I DID think that was weird, but you're right it doesn't explain the speed.

Well...... my new monoprice cables came in today and sure enough you were spot on. Speeds similar to the wifi, which was expected.
Guess my cheap amazon basics cable (shame on me) finally bit the dust.

Also sure enough, 1 Gbps with the new cable.

Glad the solution was very simple (even if embarrassingly so).
Thanks for the help.
