Connection Loss Mystery...

  PC Advice Sir 15:42 28 Oct 2006

I frequently keep losing the ability to connect to the internet without notice.

I have an Alcatel Speedtouch USB modem running windows XP SP2, and frequently update. System restore worked on one occasion a few months ago but no longer helps. Even several uninstall-reinstalls do not resolve the problem...then all of a sudden it will, and I'm back online.

I am sure there is some file corruption going on in the software between the PC and modem. Is it possible to preserve a working connection from any changes or corrupted files?

Any advice or feedback would be appreciated.
