SiS USB port keeps dropping internet connection

  quilter 20:45 15 Nov 2004

Hi, I work on a Medion notebook computer with XP professional and a BT Home Highway connection. When connected with a modem all is well, but when connected using the HH via USB port the connection is dropped frequently. Errors: no dial tone, incorrect password etc. The only way to reconnect is to unplug USB lead and reconnect or restart computer. Reformatting hasn't helped. We have 3 SiS 7001 PCI to USB open host controllers and 1 PCI to USB enhanced host controller. Have downloaded patch 'Usbdetect.exe' from click here but no improvement. Any ideas please? Thanks.
