Loading talk talk Broadband using vista

  popali 13:00 21 Mar 2007

Can Broadband be loaded using the supplied disc?. the letter from Talk talk says we can load by following a few instuctions. We have tried this several times and failed. Talktalk say that our broadband is up and running at their end .No connection lights on modem. Have tried all the usual checks. Not to familure with Vista yet.

Hi, I am afraid you will find that TalkTalk broadband modems are not Vista compatible.

Did you install the software and drivers before connecting the modem?

TalkTalk provides a run through of how to install broadband using its disk, although I can't find any mention of Vista related problems. See:

I use XP Pro so no difficulties in this area with a wired modem router.

Stuartli Thanks We tried a few cobinations to install talk talk. The instructions were to install without using the CD provided because we had vista installed. The installation letter gave one or two codes to fill in to complete the intallation. We did this before connecting the Modem (As instructed)

If, as Technotiger has suggested, TT's modems are not Vista compatible, then it should replace your modem with one that does.

However, if it's a Speedtouch 330 USB modem, then a beta driver for Vista can be acquired from:

However, the Sagem [email protected] 800 still only seems to have drivers up to XP level:

On the other hand you may have the wireless modem that TT also offers.......

You say there are no connection lights on the modem - there should be lights if there was a connection, regardless of what operating system you're using. Take the modem to your main phone point, plug it in and see if the DSL light comes on - it should do, if it doesn't then it doesn't look like it's connecting to the service at all.

Problam not realy resolved. We have sent everything back to talk talk because they do not want to talk talk with any degree of sense. they actualy sent us another set up disc which made we now had three but still no connection. Can't seem to communicate with each other.

This modem will work just fine with TalkTalk and Windows Vista. Do not use the TalkTalk CD at all.

You will not be able to use this modem/router with the USB connection. You must use only the Ethernet connection.

See click here for more detailed instructions.

If you get a Router Modem you will not need drivers

To add to spiker's comment, this is one of the three modems that TalkTalk offers. See:
