The cause of the reduced Internet speed was an old switch

The connection to the Internet is via my cable modem ch7466ce from compal (In bridge mode), the router TL-WDR4300 from tp-link and then finally via the switch from netgear model gs108 (Construction year 2003).
My Internet provider is Vodafone with 400 Mbps downlink and 25 Mbps uplink. But unfortunately I do not have the full speed on the computer. As it turned out, the old netgear switch was the cause.

I used which has very good results for high speed internet connections:

As you see I got 280 Mbps download speed only.

I replaced the old switch with a newer one:
