Received modem etc yesterday. Sagem modem. all I get is flashing ASDL light and no dial tone error when trying to connect. Also get USB Bandwidth error. Have no ther USB devices fitted. BT say line is okay, Tiscali responded to this by putting a new modem in the post for me, this time a "Speedtouch".
While I am waiting for this modem to arrive, has anyone else had similar problems, and if you resolved it ... how? Will the "Speedtouch" make a difference? How is it different from the Sagem?
Tiscali use SpeedTouch 330 and the Sagem [email protected] 800 E2T modems. Both good units, but watch out for possible disconnections with the SpeedTouch.This fault usually occurs with low power input and VIA/SIS mobo chipsets.Best to connect either of the modems direct via the computer usb outlet, and not through other devices, if you haven't already done that.
Sorry to disagree but I have a Speedtouch 330 and I've never experienced any disconnections (unless I've initiated it). I wouldn't have any other modem at the moment. My personal opinion is that it is rock solid.
