Netgear fs524 Unmanaged Switch

Connection = Comcast - 120Mbps/6Mbps

First, thanks to anyone who throws in on this. I appreciate your time.

Being an addition/new network setup (adding the FS524), of course everything was receiving the full 120Mbps/6Mbps prior to changes. So i have ruled out any cabling issues.
I did however use cat6 cables between these when testing, so there's that.
ALL other hardware/devices were disconnected while setting up, so no other influence is present.
I have done complete (reset to factory default)- power cycle with the hardware in this order. 1-Modem on/2-(factory default reset) router on/3-plug in Netgear switch.
Speed tests show a momentary spike to like 40-45 Mbps, then drop to 20-25 Mbps.
The Netgear is obviously a dirt cheap $20 purchase, and I'm not ruling out it being at fault.

Maybe an Auto-Negotiation issue (full duplex - half duplex mismatch), which i cannot find a setting on the router to force the full duplex/100 instead of Auto-Negotiate.

Here is a ping from a PC connected to the router/through the switch/to another PC.

Now reversed. From PC/through switch/through router/to PC

Ping through switch to 8.8.8.8 = 33/18/18/19ms-no loss-TTL=117

Those look pretty flawless.
