I have a Speed Stream 5260 DSL modem that is not affected by any RF. 
You are assuming that the modem is the cause. A few things to try/consider.

1. Have you by-passed the router to make sure that is not the source?
2. Have you tried different Cat 5 patch cables?
3. Have you tried a different NIC card?

The RF could be entering the system from several points in the chain.

Router to NIC. Just some thoughts from this end. (Thanks goodness I dont
have to trouble shoot RF in our 70+ LANS in the local school district.)
