;-) Hello thank you for your question. You can not use two DSL modems ("routers") to speed up your service. The reason for the slow throughput is most likely due to long wire distances which raises conductor resistance. What telephone companies have started doing (mainly to attempt to keep up with the cable company) is doubling up on the conductors thus decreasing resistance and increasing throughput. If you complain to your provider they may send a tech to check the line. When the tech arrives ask him/her if they can double up your "on your pairs" assuming you have 2 or more conductors going to your house.

Hope this helps - sorry it took so long. ;-)
