Controller, not Computer!

And three speed vs two speed isn't that much of a difference really,
since both variants are as quick
(one can reduce max speed in two, the other in just one step)
Since I believe the setting was never at "slowest" you'd be fine with a two speed controller.

Anyways.. to be sure, show us the motor you bought (the label is most important)
and we might be able to dig up the controller that'd work best for you
(with any luck even one with a three position speed limiter)
