I've just got broadband on my PC and have encountered problems ever since. I run windows ME on an Athlon 1.2ghz processor with 256mb of RAM. (ancient but has been working fine until now). New modem is a Thomson Speedtouch 330. Since installation I have had problems with windows shutting down. System refuses to close and just hangs. In addition I have crashed more times in the last few days than I have in years. When downloading mouse starts to go slow before freezing altogether. I use "cacheman" to manage memory but it appears as if tyhe new set up is draining my system
It sounds like you took up on the BT/NTL BB that I just joined. As that's the Modem they sent me, it's a Alcatel usb frog for short. But I did not have any problems at all on this Win98se comp or my Desktop XP or Laptop XP. But got a Modem Router now so I can use all tree or any one without switching Modem, it's also Wireless So I can go out in Garden when Sun shines and use Laptop on BB
It appears as if I've no memory left for no good reason even though I'm not multi-tasking. I'd appreciate anyone who has similar problems since switching to broadband. prior to this my system worked fine. My ISP is Talktalk. I've tried using Cachemen to solve problem but to no avail.
