WiFi problems?

We have Verizon Fios and my computer runs speeds of 80-90mbps. This leads me to believe the speeds into the house are fine.

We have other desktops, laptops, and 5, always streaming, Nestcams running off the wifi.  It appears that the wifi connected devices are bogged down.

Even in the same room as the router we top off around 20mbps with nothing else connected (I disconnected cameras, etc.). With all cameras on, speeds die and drop off regularly.

Any thoughts on a fix for this.

We have Verizon Fios and my computer runs speeds of 80-90mbps  <-- This says your computer has an N Wi-Fi card.

Do the other devices have slower (say G) cards?  That would explain it.

always streaming, Nestcams running off the wifi  <- - You are getting 80-90 mbps while this is occurring? Is there more than one Wi-Fi feed?  Say, from another router.

The computer is hard wired.

That explains it!  Wired Ethernet is always faster than Wi-Fi and the wireless congestion is slowing all the Wi-Fi computers down. You need to see if you can reduce congestion, spread it out, or consider using more wired connections.
