I kind of figured something along those lines.

You can't change the way it is...it must stay this way. Do whatever you
have to do (get a longer cable for instance) in order to keep things the
way they are.
Here is a solution for you. Note that the <new switch> has ONLY the ISP
cable, and the gateway cable plugged into it AND NOTHING ELSE.
A new switch may cost only about $40USD, but not only will it work the
same, but it will allow you to put the gateway in your other room:
<down the street>
<cable from home switch,
that also goes to ISP>
<long cable that goes to room
far, far away>

Cheers. I'm glad it worked out for you! :)
