Hi Guys, My Broadband keeps switching off.The two green dots are solid on Modem but it just disconnects after round ten mins. I have auto updated my thro my provider (wanadoo now Orange from 2 to 5,6 even 7G.I wonder if the old Thompson modem cant handle the new faster speed or what. I also had a Live box from Orange but cant attach because i have no ethernet connection on my hard drive(Sony Vaio)and installed the cd that now has switched my settings from Wanadoo to Orange uk. Do i have a virus or is there something i have to do via settings (i have upto date Norton Security 2007)it is mad how it just switches off and i have to re connect to speedtouch. I would really appreciate as much help as i can its driving me mad oh...connections just gone again AAAHHH!! Thanks Justin

USB ports going to sleep ? Try looking at the settings in Device manager and under the headings " USB Root hub / power management " un-tick " allow computer to turn off this device to save power " see if that helps ....
Right click on My Computer , select properties , then select hardware , then device manager , then click on the + sign by Universal Serial Bus controllers , depending on how many USB root hubs are listed , double click them in turn and under Power Management untick the relevant box ( Allow the computer etc. ) Ok your way out of that close device manager Ok system properties and reboot .
hi i have the same problem, its not the power that cuts off its the dsl light on the modem that sitches off so the modem goes out of sync. I had my isp check my phone line and its not that and they couldnt figure it out....anybody have ideas please?
Is this up to 8 Meg too? Although some USB modems are supposed to be compatible, in reality they don't work that well with 8 Meg. As I advised joostin, you would be better off replacing it with a modem/router.
