Guys,
This *may* be a USB power issue. There are suggestions that USB modems are on the limit for amount of power some USB ports can supply; this often seems to be motherboard dependent. I think that if you do a search of the forums on http://www.adslguide.org.uk/, it may be useful. A common (although not cheap) solution is buy a *powered* USB hub and plug your "frog" into that. The "frog" will then take its power from the hub and not your mobo. Perhaps you could get the loan of such a hub to prove the point (or otherwise ;-) ) before you buy one.
