Yes, you are correct about the bandwidth - except I don't think the 
upload is 500 Mbps ;-P

Yes, I did try splitting it in half, and I tried using much lower values 
(500Kbit/s incoming, 350Kbit/s outgoing) as well.

My provider is a local company that pretty much only services this town. 
Additionally, our link is wireless if that matters for some reason.

I don't have a clue, nor do I know how to find this out! I have tried 
lowering the MTU size of the WAN link based on something I had read, but 
it made no difference that I could tell.

Thanks for the suggestions,
