Drivers for speedtouch modem, XP

  Blubottle 12:24 20 Dec 2008

Does anyone know what version drivers are needed for a Thompson Speedtouch ST330 USB modem to work with XP home are?
I have installed ver 301.0.012 but although hardware manager informs me that the modem is working correctly I cannot get it to connect with my BB ISP error "0678" every time, both green lights are on and constant, and I have checked with ISP tech that all is setup properly but still no joy.

clutching at straws now and pulling hair out.

Who is your ISP?

ISP is plusnet.

301.0.012 is the latest driver for this modem.
Click on the "Connection" tab and toggle the status monitor, see how far it gets and what is causing the error.

what are your settings ? user name-password-tele no-0,38 are the norm.

I've the same set up as Blubottle, XP home, Plusnet and Thompson 330 modem. Direct me and I'll copy my settings here. That always assumes the problem has not been sorted.

Many thanks one and all.
to give you all a better understanding I have created a dual boot with each O/S on it's own drive. win 2k and XP home using a boot manager to select. My primary O/S being win 2k which I use successfully with BB and the st 330 modem, now I have added XP on the second drive I copied all the settings over from the primary and set up the connection, but it will not connect "error 0678" as described above.
