Hiya all

Anybody know much about modems? I know this is off-topic but you guys seem very knowledgeable.

My ADSL Speedtouch USB modem (green manta ray) disconnects whenever I upload using HTTP or bit torrent. It works fine for FTP.

Any ideas what this might be? It's infuriating!

Check out you're internet settings, sometimes,if you're using a proxy server, and trying to upload bit torrent, or in you're case HTTP, it will disconnect.

Are you on an ADSL plan which doesn't allow filesharing?

Have you got the latest drivers for the modem?

Also, these ones are known for being very power hungry (taking the maximum 500mA from the USB), so maybe if you've got any other USB devices connected try without them. Seems weird what it's doing though, so that's along shot.

Still does it with no other USB devices plugged in...I've also disabled the 'allow computer to disconnect device to save power', etc.
