    Using windows update.log in your system folder is always a good place to start if debugging it. At work we had some machiens installed from XP original disk then updated later to SP1, and updating was broken with no explicatble reason given (is connecting to our local SUS server by the way - which to client point of view is same as connecting to windowsupdate.com). With the slipstreamed install disk it worked fine - exact same config otherwise.

    I have ntl 700k Broadband (should be 600, but i manage to get 700 out of it ) and i have NEVER had a problem with them or Windows Update... perhaps your firewall is stopping you installing the latest windows update software? Or another point would be to see if you have disabled auto updates in services..
    A final thing is that Mcafee Antivirus and Firewall's Winsock sh** settings interfered with my NTL and Windows Update. If u have Mcafee, uninstall and ensure u have a copy of Norton 2004 or Panda Antivirus ready as backup.(Panda isnt very good)
    if this doesnt work, contact Microsoft Technical Support.
