Hmm, weren't the SamKnows test boxes equipped with 100Mbps ports? Your data clearly suggests they are GigE. What hardware model do you have?

The first routers samknows gave out were WNR3500L which have gigabit wan ports.

They also have two tp-links, one of which is Gig-e
[edit]
I just received my new router yesterday. It's a TL-WDR3600 set to bridge mode. Gig-E on all wired ports.

The Sam Knows Netgear N3500L is a Wireless Gigabit Router. It has Gigabit port on the WAN side and three Gigabit ports on the LAN side. Make sure that you are using a Cat 5e patch cable not a Cat 5 patch cable to connect to the CM or the Netgear router will only connect at 100 Mbps link speed to the CM.

Cat 5 will work just fine at 1000

Not mine! Just a note for users using this router if they have this issue.

In the middle of the month I had a pretty severe case of packet loss. CV had to fix something for our whole apartment building.

I have the TP-Link TL-WR1043ND -- which has Gig-E at least on the LAN ports -- where its connected to my main router.
