Download speed slow on Mac Pro but fast on MacBook Pro

I have an early 2008 8-core Mac pro, 6 GB RAM, running 10.6.8. I'm connected via ethernet to the HITRON CGN3 modem/WiFi router from Rogers. I'm only getting about 20Mbps download, and 10 Mbps upload. However, when I connect my 13" 2011 MacBook Pro (8

I have an early 2008 8-core Mac pro, 6 GB RAM, running 10.6.8. I'm connected via ethernet to the HITRON CGN3 modem/WiFi router from Rogers. I'm only getting about 20Mbps download, and 10 Mbps upload. However, when I connect my 13" 2011 MacBook Pro (8 GB RAM) to the modem, also running 10.6.8 and using ethernet into the same port, I get about 80Mbps download and 10 Mbps upload. Even using WiFi, my MacBook Pro is able to get about 80Mbps download.
My network settings are the same in both my Mac Pro and my MacBook Pro. I should be getting around 60-80Mbps download on my internet plan, but my Mac Pro is underperforming.
Anyone know the solution, or have experienced a similar issue?
Thanks in advance.

Grant, you sir are a mega genius.
The culprit was the ethernet cable. I plugged the cable I was using for the Mac Pro into my MacBook and experienced a drop in download speed. Upon inspection, the cable had 6 wires. Who knew? This cable worked with my previous modem, and my speeds were pretty good. I just upgraded my internet package, and got this new modem, so I guess the cable is no longer incompatible.
Now that I've replaced the ethernet cable to my Mac Pro, my download speeds are smokin'.
Thanks, man, you saved the day!
