If I print my IE6 stops working and i have to reboot the computer.

I'm usung Win2K with a lexmark x1150 and my modem is webstar running blueyonder 1.5 mb service.

both units are connected via USB in the back of my pc.

Thanks in advance

Sounds like your printer is taking all the power when printing and your modem is tripping out.

Suggest you get a self powered usb hub and connect the printer or the modem to that.

As jimv7 says, the modem should be on a USB hub on its own. Are there any more USB ports available?
