SpeedTouch Modem - I've noticed this, though...

When I for example, post a thread, as I did just moments ago in 'BB constantly disconnecting', the light on the left - USB - flickers and the page takes a little longer to change. It doesn't always happen, but am starting to look at EVERYTHING that's happening now...

I have a speedtouch and the left light flickers on and off when loading pages.

OK, just a though really - trying to rule out ALL possible reasons why the damn thing keeps dropping the line... so the flickering light must be a standard thing with the SpeedTouch then,

Thank you,

Just to put your mind at rest, I too have a speedtouch modem. The left light always flickers when changing web pages and more so while downloading, in fact in can appear to be off with a heavy download.

it would help if these bl***y manufacturers included documentation re. all parts of their products! I thought that might be the case, but if either of you've read my other current post, 'BB constantly disconnecting...' , you'll see why I'm trying to rule out absolutely everything!

Have posted this on your other thread.

Have you plugged your modem directly into your computer.Mine won't work through a hub.

Are you connected directly into your main telephone box.

I've tried the modem in both desktop & laptop with same results. I've been advised to get a powered USB hub...

AngeTheHippy. I had the same problem, try using a different USB port. the one I was using was also supporting my scanner, both requiring max power. Speedtouch could run for a couple of hours then drop the connection and then it wouldn't connect again
