One way - replace it. The Alcatel stinks. Tell your ISP that the modem doesn't work and you'd like an Ethernet modem. I'm serious.
: the via chipset which controlls my usb ports has some kind of power managment that stops power going to my usb modem [alcatel speed touch] whenever it senses a stop in traffic down the line, this then dissconnects me from my adsl service.anyone know how to stop it.
