What does the ISP mean by "each of my router ports top a max of 12mb"? Is he suggesting you actually have *two* independent ISP connections, each w/ 12Mbps? I just find it an odd way for the ISP to describe the router. Your ISP usually offers some fixed cap, say 12Mbps, and that's distributed across the entire router (i.e., the switch and wireless AP). You don't get 12Mbps per port!
