Speedtouch 330 ADSL Modem

Having connection problems with above.

When I start my PC or restart I click on the Speedtouch Connection icon on the desktop. This starts the initial connection but upon opening the default webpage it cannot connect to it.

I then have to close the connection but when I retry the connection it is fine.

This is becoming a bit of a pain each time.

I have downloaded and installed the new drivers for modem but this hasn't fixed problem.

Win XP - SP2
IE 6

Has anyone got any suggestions, thanks.

Does the PC have time to finish loading all the start up programs before you try to connect? If I try to connect before firewall loaded I have to wait, maybe theresa time out with your modem?

mine fails to connect about 50% of the time but I just live with it at the moment.

Yes Windows does load up all startup programs before i connect but it still occurs.

I had a Speedtouch 330 (came free from my ISP)and had endless problems with it. Dropped connections, etc.
Eventually I bought a new modem (because I wanted to connect 2 PCs wirelessly.
Since then I've had no problems ast all.
My advice is to ditch the speedtouch and buy a different modem; they're not expensive.

I had occasional problems with my speedtouch modem but they all went away when I plugged directly into my computer usb2 connection rather than into a hub.
