Motorola/AT&T High Speed DSL Modem (dsl half speed!)

My 2wire crapped out on me so I got the little black Motorola/AT&T High Speed DSL Modem from walmart until I can get a new wireless modem.
The speed test shows I'm getting less than half the speed with this modem (wired) than the 2wire (wireless) gave me.

Is there any settings I can change to make it better?

Do you have a filter at the jack your modem is at ?Is it plugged into the side that says phone?There are no setting to change speed.

There is a decent probability that the problem with the 2Wire is just the power supply; AT&T sells replacements (they were about $10 at one point; I am not sure what the present price is).

Turns out it was the cruddy dsl filter that came with it. Romoved it and my speed went back to normal.
Thanks for the posts!
