I don't have a way to do this since the switch has no interface and the
router doesn't have an option for that.

As I understand it the carrier takes me from the wall to the ISP and from
there the ISP <--> outside world.

We tested it by the carrier routing me directly to the carrier and we got
full bandwidth. Also everything on the line tested fine, and the router
shows a connection speed of 18+ Mbps. When the ISP is back in the line
speedtest.net shows I'm getting 1.5M on a good day and even then it is
extremely variable.

Didn't want to restart the discussion until I have a chance to follow up on
Lionel and Laurence's suggestions but also didn't want to not respond to
your post.

Thanks a lot. Will get back to the list with any updates.
