Wifi speed?

I have a Netgear WNDR3400v2 router, which is a N600 dual-band router that runs both a 2.4GHz and a 5GHz channel at 300 Mbps each. My laptop confirms that the link speed is 300 Mbps. But a speed check only gives me around 22 Mbps. If I connect to the wired 100 Mbps Ethernet port, I get around 95 Mbps. (My cable plan is charging me for a 90 Mbps plan.)

Since the router is only a N type which is limited to 100 Mbps and wifi has a lot of overhead, I knew that I should not expect more than, say, 50 Mbps. But still I expected more than 22. Am I doing something wrong? My laptop has a Wi-Fi 6 modem. For these tests, the only other devices online were my two wifi printers that were both sleeping.
