I have a occasional problem with virgin broadband connection witch is sometimes cured by unplugging and plugging the usb . Is there some way to check the usb`s to see if they are working apart from plugging in devices
Do you have the slightly domed version of the 330; it normally has a silver top.
Or do you have the smaller, flat topped version.
They are both Speedtouch 330's, but the silver domed ones DO have power problems, whilst the smaller (newer ) ones do not.
I have two of each on different connections, and the domed ones fail to power up about 25% of the time, while the others have never had this problem. (Well, I did have two of the domed ones, until my anger mamagement circuit failed, and I swung the bugger by its tail. New expression: not enough room to swing a USB modem!!).
The problem is partly resolved by either a seperate usb cable or port change, or by a powered hub, but it doesn't stop it!!
I'll try & find some pictures to explain modem types better!
bjh- thanks for all that actually I`ve got the black flat modem I had the siler dome top when I was with wanadoo and I had endless problems which is why I changed isp At the moment having plugged the modem into a different port the problem has been resolved I hope for good anyway thanks a lot for your interest and help. eric
