Is it the Ethernet switch or the modem that's got the problem?
What are you calling a "router?" I've most often seen that name applied
to a WiFi base station.
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.

That may or may not fix it, but by all means try it. If you haven't
already done so, try a serious choke tuned to 160M on the coax at the
modem and the power supply for the modem.

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?
