Random USB Connection

This may be a common problem! I have six USB 2.0 ports. A scanner on one, a printer on another and my broadband connection on the third. Nine time out of ten on boot up, my broadband connection comes up and then randomly disconnects. The only way that I can get it to connect is to reboot. This id frustrating in the extreme. Any solutions gratefully received, the ultimate will be grabbed!

Are these six separate USB ports or six ports on a hub?

Does your PC still have the original USB 1 connections? If it does then try connecting your
Broadband to one of these. When I had problems it worked for me. All the best.

Are all the ports Enabled in the Bios?
