How to turn off Sharedband on Netgear and TP-Link W8968 Router (for ISP Troubleshooting)

Sharedband is an extra piece of software added to the routers to allow ADSL bonding. If we turn this software off then the modem is EXACTLY like a standard modem, This is useful to troubleshoot connectivity issue's with your ISP.
