Ok, so if I'm understanding this.  This is your issue.  When your internet connection is up and stable, communication between your clients and your database (all self contained within the local area network, nothing going over the ADSL link) your speeds are fine.  But when the ADSL link goes down, then your inter-LAN traffic slows.

I would try to run some tests between computers using IP addresses only.  The only thing I can think of is that maybe your database server is configured to do something with DNS upon connections (I've seen that before where a server will do a reverse DNS lookup on the connecting IP address).  If that is the case and your internet is down it must wait for the DNS request to time out before it proceeds.  So it looks like a slow down when it really isn't.  It's just a process timing out. Since you get your IPs from the router, I assume that  you are using DNS servers not on your LAN as well which would explain those time outs when the ADSL link goes down

That's all I can think of anyway.

Routers don't route packets as fast as switches do.
You can buy a layer 3 gigabit switch
Enable IP cef and ip routing on the switch
If your database has 2 NIC ports, configure etherchannel on it to increase bandwidth.
Another good thing to do is to make the switch your gateway, but you will need to know how to create a default route to your router

All the best
