Connecting TP link Gig switch- 96 Mbs all ports

Connecting a tp link unmanaged Gig switch only produces 98 Mbps. no matter what port on the TG 4482A Xfi router I plug intoI must be doing something wrong but I'm not sure what that is. Everything is supposed to be automatic on the switch as it's plug &play.

First. Which speed tier are you actually subscribed to ? Are you using a minimum of a cat5e ethernet cable ? Do Your devices have 10/100/1000 ethernet port capability ?

I'm subscribed to the Gigabit service w/ unlim. data. Looking at the admin page, it says my connection speed is 1200Mbps. and it's actually around 700Mbps when I connect directly from my desktop to the router via cat6 cable. It's when I connect the switch that I get the 100Mbps tier. The switch itself has 3 tiers : 10base, 100base, and 1000base. Automatic MAC address learning CSMA/CD protocol, 5/8 10/100/100Mbps auto negotiation Rj45 ports, Qos9802.1 p/DSCP priority) Transfer method is store-and-forward. I'm not sure which of that information is relevant if any. Shorter version is that I'm subscribed to the Gig service or Xfi, I'm using a cat6 cable, my devices are all capable of 1000Mbps speeds and I actually gets close when the switch is not connected. Thanks in advance

Was that a typo (100) ? What is the exact make and model number of the switch ?

@EG  I apologize, yeah that was a typo I meant 1000.  The switch is model# TL-SG 1008D / v.8.26   8port Desktop Gigabit switch by Tp-Link. 

sorry for the delayed response, briefly incarcerated.

Thanks again in advance

If it is possible, and if it's enabled, disable any DSCP / QoS feature.
