Timeouts while playing most multiplayer games

Dear friends,

A few days ago we were using a SuperHub 2 for our internet connection.
Since then, the wifi boke, then the cable's line-in to the modem broke. It was replaced with a SuperHub 3 yesterday.

When pinging the SuperHub 2 router I would occasionally get timeouts, translating as in-game connection loss and rubber banding.

This wasn't a problem, as it only happened occasionally.

Since then we have installed a SuperHub 3. My computer is using the same powerline adapter with wired ethernet.

However now I am unable to even load into multiplayer games. I am specifically getting a "connection timed out" error when trying to join Rust or Space Engineers servers. Occasional Discord and Steam disconnects too during the connection attempts. When using my wifi dongle to connect, I get similar results.

When idling, everything seems great.

However whenever I try to load into a multiplayer server, I get results like these. (This is 4:42 in the morning, so off-peak time)

I am running Windows 10 on a desktop.
Wired connection using

TP-LINK AV600 Powerline
with their provided
6.5 ft. (2 m) Ethernet cable (RJ45)

Virgin Super Hub 3.0
with cable internet

I use NetBalancer 9.4.1 to monitor process network usage and prioritise some processes.

Here is a speed test.

The currently connected devices. (Ethernet is me, mobile is a flatmate)

A router network diagnostic gives this.
I would like to remind people the the problem I am facing is reproducible using my WiFi dongle.
I think the warning about my wired connection is because the TP-LINK AV600 has ethernet sockets rated at:
2 * 10/100Mbps Ethernet Ports –TL-WPA4220
2 * 10/100Mbps Ethernet Ports – TL-PA4020P

Here are the installed network devices on my computer.

I hope I have provided enough information, and would like to thank everyone for their time and help. It is greatly appreciated.

In addition, here is a network graph that may be helpful as it populates itself.
