It could well be the heat. If your room is anything like mine it was reaching 29 degrees. Lots of peoples computers are crashing out in one way or another, and attached peripherals would do the same. Try it again after being off for a few hours.

in device manager check the properties on the USB controller and modem 'Power Management', 'Save Power' should be unchecked

What you need is...

A spare 80/92/120mm fan

A spare molex

Some blutack

Blutack the fan pointing at your modem, connect it to a spare molex, turn on your computer, job done.

this is what I did for my router, I rested it on a spare heatsink (Thermalright AX-7), can't say it helps with connectivity since it still craps out randomly when all 3 comps are gaming on it, but definitely helps with temps, without it skin contact is unbearable for longer than 3 seconds.

last week bt was having problems routing ADSL signals, i use Demon and an internal pci adsl modem so heat was not an issue.

kept loggin off. i called demon and they told me that bt was having this issue.

if adsl signal is not routed through your line correctly then the modems act like the line is disconnected
peace
