It has already been suggested but obviously you have ignored it
so I'll say it again - get the hosting provider on the horn
and have them lock the switch port to 100baseT-half duplex, you then
do the same, then try the test, then have them lock to 10base t full,
you do the same, try the test again, then have them lock to 10base t
half, you do the same, and try again.  Report the results.
