Are there any problem with my modem 33.6 ?

Hi there !
I have just bought new modem Zyxel Comet 336 Plug and play . I installed Zyxel Comet 336
and It's Ok but. It connected at 33600bps. But when I downloaded files from http://www.download.com and my local ftp site :ftp://ftp.farlep.net. But the highest speed was 3.0 K/sec .I tried many other times but I had the same result.In the past, I used modem 14400bps and the highest speed( when I downloaded) was 1.5 K/sec . When I compare,I just wonder maybe I have problem with my setting so I checked my setting:
I chose Maximum speed is 115200bps...
Do I need add command AT&Z2 in Advanced connection settings?
I would like you to help me and Thank you for taking the time to read this information.

The speed of your net connection depends on a lot of variables.  Check with your ISP and find out what equipment they are using.  Try downloading something directly from your ISP's server; if that is significantly faster then chances are your ISP is not too good; think about changing.
