I have a alcatel speedtouch modem xp pro service pack 2 bt phone line. im with v21. Im haveing trouble connecting sometimes it connects in one second sometimes takes me about one hour to connect. both green lights are on not flashing.
V21 say theres no problem on there end.

Cant understand why it should connect no problem then i disconnect try to connect again and have problems. I have tryed different modem and filter
still same problem

Try connecting the modem to a different USB port, or if it's on a hub, directly to the PC instead.

..went for a Draytek router in the end and haven't looked back, always-on and much more reliable, don't have to bother with USB.

Just bought a mercury adsl router always on.
Just hope i got the right one for a normal bt phone line
