    Could be the game you’re playing. I’ve given up on vanguard as it was really bad. My other ps5 games all are no problem

    When my PS5 was behaving weird on both Wired (via a homeplug) and Wireless, I set up Port Forwarding on my router for my PS5 and my speeds shot up dramatically and it should also lower general internet lag and ping when playing games online. It's a fairly simple process too.

    Taken from expressVPN site:
    • Head over to your PS5 Settings.
    • Scroll down and select Network.
    • Select View Connection Status.
    • You’ll see the IP Address of your PlayStation 5. Note this down as you’ll need it later on.
    • Also, note down the MAC address of your PS5.
    • Log in to your router via the browser and head over to the Port Forwarding section.
    • Manually assign the IP address to your PS5 console from the data you’ve noted down (Step 4 & Step 5).
    • Also, add ports for TCP and UDP. If your router supports both protocols, then add 1935, 3074, 3478-3480. If your router does not have the ‘both’ option, then add TCP and UDP ports separately: Protocol TCP: 1935,3478-3480 & Protocol UDP: 3074,3478-3479.
    • Once the changes have been done, reboot your router.

    Which Nova mesh do you have? Although it may not be a cause of the lag, some can only handle 100mbps and may be limiting your speeds.

    Have you constantly been putting ps5 into sleep mode? Sometimes My fifa 22 lags just after scoring a goal after continuing playing after sleep mode (that’s on 1080p tv too and not 4K), restarting ps5 sorts it out straight away

    Sorry been at work all day, I would try following
    and try primary as 8.8.8.8 and secondary as 8.8.4.4. If that doesn't improve anything try the port forwarding another recommended should help
