greedy modem problem - how use USB Hub?

Hello all

Recently I connected to ADSL with a USB modem. After a while (variable from 1 minute to 1 hour), the connection stops and the only way I can reconnect is by restarting the computer.

After several exchanges, the Helpdesk experts established that my modem is power-hungry and they suggested updating drivers. however, none of these drivers worked.

I decided to buy a self-powered USB Hub but, to my exasperation, it made the problem worse because the internet connection could not be established AT ALL.

Please help. Does this sound like a power problem? If so, am i doing something wrong (the USB Hub didnot come with any instructions so i assumed it was just a metter of connecting)?
