Speed touch 330 ADSL modem problems on vista

  morty85 20:17 11 Aug 2008

I have put together a new p.c. for a family freind and had to install there speedtouch 330 modem for there talk talk acount to their comp, this was a problem in it's self, but managed to get drivers and get it sorted, .

I restarted the system to find it recognised the modem but there was no connection to the net!,
i tried everything but vista seems to revert it back to a dial up connection as default,

it's annoying because i had it working and now it just wont find it at all!

"but there was no connection to the net"

I assume that you have correctly set up the modem to connect to Talk Talk and that you did use the latest Vista-enabled Speedtouch drivers?

yes , these are the drivers that i installed , it worked fine, i am going to try it again later in the week reinstall it all, but it's just the fact it dissapeared when i restarted the system, any other help would be great

I would consider using a wired modem router rather than the USB route.....:-)

I've recently connected a Speedtouch 330 to a Vista laptop (using Tiscali).

I've noticed that in IE; Tools; Internet Options; Connections you must have 'Dial whenever a network connection is not present' ticked, otherwise it doesn't want to know.

Any Speedtouch 330 modem I've seen uses a dial up connection to connect. The "phone number" is usually just a zero.

Windows treats a USB modem's configuration in similar fashion to that of a dial-up version except that, when setting it up from IE's ISP Connections tab, you state ADSL rather than dial-up.

The correct "Phone" setting is:

I agree with Stuartli - change the phone setting. In Vista you can also set it to automatically connect.

Thanks to everyone who posted, if anyone has simaler problem , the above info should sort it out, set it up like a dial up connection, with the "phone number" "0" and shou;d work fine!

No, the "phone number" is:


As I stated, these are the VPI and VCI figures for the UK.
