I have gone over to Windows 7, I installed my Speedtouch for my internet connection, when I click on the desktop link it shows my e-mail address but my password box is blank and the connection fails, how can I save my password as I could with XP.
Thanks for the link Fruitbat, I've downloaded and saved the drivers whilst I mull over to install them.
The trouble was I had such a problem installing Speedtouch in the first place and now it works I'm a bit loth to alter thing by installations.
I forgot to put in my original post that after the first attempt at going on line without the password showing, I can fill in the password box, press connect and succeed in getting connected. Speedtouch modem is obviously working in Windows 7 but I must have missed something in the installation as the password box isn't filled in as it was in XP.
Sorry for not giving the whole picture.
I have been trying to find the answer to this by "googling it" and one forum came up with the theory that the old USB modems are inadequate with Windows 7.
I got on to Tiscali(TalkTalk) about this problem and the reply from their Technical team was that with W7 being relatively new they have not developed new drivers for it.
When I threatened to ask for a MAC as the equipment they provided wasn't up to the job their "Options" dept said they would send me a router which according to all Forums and Tiscali will solve the problem of the pre filled in password.
I'll post again when I receive it and install.
Ps. I must have had the old Speedtouch USB modem 10 or 11 years.
I have installed the router and everything was fine from the start.
I should have had one years ago. The router is left on all the time so the tablet I've just bought my wife can be used anytime and when i switch on I'm connected automatically.
I'll mark this thread as settled.
