    How nauseating! Installed Speedtouch 330 software, plugged in the
    modem, restarted - no lights on the modem! Various attempts to find
    the modem result in it (and my USB joystick, which was fine
    previously!) not being recognised.

    Anybody else had these probs? And more importantly, how did you fix

    I've got XP with SP1 installed

    Download these (if you don`t already have newer)

    SpeedTouchUSB update.exe

    - there`s also a little guide courtesy of Pipex for setting them up if
    you like, as well as the full CD in a subdirectory that came with mine

    What chipset have you got in your motherboard, and are you using any
    other USB devices - it may work if you take everything else out - the
    speedtouch modems take a lot of power, and some USB ports shut themselves
    down for safety when devices try to take too much current.

    You may find a powered USB hub (seperate power supply) will solve the

    Could be that your USB is not able to supply the required current to
    the modem which is why you are losing the joystick as well. My 330
    worked no problem but I have since transferred it to a powered USB
    hub because of it supposedly being a bit heavy on current.
