If, and I mean if, being zapped was the cause, then that could well be
the nature of the fault. Damage to components that allow a charge to
build up that causes stuff ups.
Faulty equipment can behave in weird ways. I've been servicing
electronics equipment for over twenty years, and it's quite hard to
relate broken equipment behaviour to how things are expected to work.

That's possible. Or just a strange compatibility between yours and
theirs. Or you've firewalled things off, too much, and broken basic
In the best of worlds, you'd reconfigure their modem/router to act as
just a bare-bones modem (bridge mode), so there's less processing
between modem and your own router.

Can you not replace it, yourself, with something equivalent? Does using
that ISP absolutely require their equipment?
Can you break it, accidentally on purpose? ;-)
