What FW is currently loaded?
What is the Mfr and model# of the ISP modem the NG router is connected too?

What channels are you using? Auto? Try setting manual channel 1, 6 or 11 on 2.4Ghz and any unused channel on 5Ghz.
Any Wifi Neighbors near by? If so, how many?
What WPA security modes are you using?

My Setup (Cable 1Gbps/50Mbps)>CAX80 v2.1.2.1(LAG Disabled)>RBK853 v4.6.3.16(AP) & RBK752 v4.6.5.14
Additional NG HW: C7800/CM1100/CM1200CM2000, Orbi CBK40, CBR750, RBK50(v22), SXR30(v110), R7000(v34), R7800(v84), R7960P(v82), EX7500/EX7700, XR450(v120) and WNHDE111

Could you be more specific please. What speeds do you pay for? What do you get through WiFi? Your Xbox doesn't get a connection at all through a wired connection? - Have you tried using a different ethernet cable?

I pay for 400MBs and I get about 180 through WiFi, I can’t use CAT5e cables but I can use an ordinary Ethernet. I was hoping to figure out how to make the CAT5e cable work because they are way more effective.

Make sure you've input your expected speeds into Anti-Bufferbloats options. Then disable Smart Connect and use the 5GHz WiFi and you should get higher speeds. There is no different setup or anything you need to do using a different ethernet cable so it sounds like the Cat5e cables you have are faulty so would suggest get them replaced and your wired connection should work then.
