Whenever you use your modem it negoiates the highest speed possible with you isp. It starts with 56K then drops to the highest level that gives a clean signal. If you can not get high transfer rates, there is probably noise on your phone line, or your phone line is not up to carrying this speed of data transfer. Make sure that you reduce the amount a electrical equipment near your line and check that the line does not pass through any other electrical equipment such as an answering machine.

If youre not getting 33.6K I wouldnt worry about x2 quite yet.

If you are getting more than 33.6K you are using x2. I think you have to clean up your signal a bit more to get any higher rates.
