Thanks for the suggestions, my colleague is visiting the colo today to have
another try so I will get him to ask them what they are seeing on their
switch (which is managed) ;)

Still getting a link light?  Given what you've tried already, I'd ask the
colo what they're seeing on with their switch, as I'm sure they're using
managed switches and could probably tell you at least something.
 (if they're not using managed switches, *run* out of there with your boxes
and find a real colo)
