Broadband Connection - Tempermental.

  BrutusGold 17:30 04 Apr 03

I have Freeserve broadband running off a copperjet 800 USB modem, on a ME machine... Almost every time i power up my machine, the modem does not respond, or rather the connection is not complete. if i then reboot my pc, it normally works.... other times it persistantly asks me to unplug & re plug the modem....

Any idea's anyone...?

I have been told USB Broadband is not very stable, my brother-in-law uses a network card for his !

After a lenghty conversation to the help desk, Freeserve have despatched me a new modem... same model mind... am very dubious whether it'll make any difference, but fingers crossed..!!
