Can anyone please help me, when I plug in my Alcatel ADSL Modem in my USB
port my Hard disk slows down, the Modem is supplied by BT and looks like a
flat fish which is green.
I have tried the Modem in a powered USB hub so I don't think that is the
problem, the modem doesn't have to be connected to my ISP just plugged in. I
have disconnected all my other USB devices which has made no difference.
My Hard disk is connected to IDE1 (UDMA 33 due to high point problems with
Win XP) In HD Tach I was getting Read Burst 29MB/s, Read Max 23.8MB/s, with
the modem connected I'm now getting Read Burst 20.3MB/s, Read Max 20.4MB/s.
The modem is not using any CPU power and has the latest driver loaded, any
