Hi. Happy Ney Year!

Wonder if someone could please help me: I was shopping for an ADSL modem on ebay and thoughtlessly bought one from France - SpeedTouch 570 WiFi router. Unfortunately the DSL line does not sync. I am in Ontario, Canada. My ISP verified that the CO is not getting any signal from the modem. I wonder in the ADSL set-up in France might be different from Ontario (things like operational mode, bitspertone, etc). Or are there any hardware settings on the speedtouch from Europe that would make it un-usable in North America?
How do I find out what line set-up is used for ADSL in Ontario? Any other suggestions? Please help.
