[CQ-Contest] Router Recommendation?

I should have specified that the internet source was is not DSL, but coax. The LAN cables are unshielded Cat 6, and there are lot of them. Putting 2 inch cores on each of them is impracticable, so I'm looking for a modem with less inherent susceptibility. Problems occur only when I'm transmitting on 160. 

It may be the easiest solution is to disconnect all the LAN cables during contests, and just use WiFi.

I'll admit that RF levels are high, as my shunt-fed tower is only about 20 meters away from the router, and some of the ethernet cables come within about 10 meters of the tower. Has anyone found a router that doesn't have this problem?
