    Flat, Green USB BT Modems.

    You know those dodgy looking, flat, green modems, shaped like a sting-ray, that you get from BT, when you have broadband installed, what's the exact name of those?

    I know its a SpeedTouch USB modem, but couldn't find anything else on the modem itself.

    alcatel speedtouch usb

    that's about it

    just don't use one if you have kt133, those things ignore the usb spec & draw enough current to burn out kt133 usb controllers in many circumstances

    Ahh, so that's what could of happened! My BB connection goes through my Dad's PC which has a KT133 mobo (I'm pretty sure it has) and the computer won't boot with the modem plugged in.

    It's a Thompson SpeedTouch 330, not a green one!

    ebuyer have 1 port (ethernet) adsl routers for about £20, if theyre decent, then its a good deal, mine cost £100 and is rubbishrubbishrubbishrubbishe (d-link 504).

    just don't use one if you have kt133, those things ignore the usb spec & draw enough current to burn out kt133 usb controllers in many circumstances
    hmm odd.. i thought it was the other way round.. they draw below spec but via mobos dont provide enuf for the USB spec... that way makes more sense, and allows for more hating of via
