      Hi joe.

      Thankfully i've never had to deal with REIN but if considering it as a possible cause of all the weirdness, this site has some good info including the radio frequency to listen in on.

      If you suspect there is something interfering with your broadband, get an AM/MW radio and tune it to 612KHz.

      If you hold the radio next to an LCD screen for your PC as an example you would hear a distinct noise. This should fade away if you move the radio a quarter to half a meter away. Hold it by your modem/router and you'll hear the DSL signal.
      etc...

      So if the radio can be tuned to 612Khz (am) it will serve as a suitable detector.
