When i plug my mp3 cable (6" long) into the usb port which is just above the port which my broad band modem is plugged into it disconnects me from the internet. It did work but now it won't. I'm running win xp home edition, any ideas?

You shouldn't connect anything to the second port of the same root hub as a Broadband modem. These modems require around 500Ma, that is all the power available from the hub.
