Alcatel USB Speedtouch and Win XP

Anyone ran into any problems with Win XP and Alcatel Modems? Since Last evening my modem wont initialise properly now and I did update my system with some security patches from microsoft..

Just sits there blinking and saying no dial tone..sure its software related (but you can never tell with BT)...

any help really appreciated if you have been in similar predicaments....Cry

Have you made sure you switched the modem on before booting the PC? XP does not like you turning on the modem after it has started - wierd as Win 98 never complained . . .

Andy,
The Alcatel Speedtouch modem is a USB modem and is powered Solely by the USB port and as such doesnt have any power buttons.

I did try plugging it directly into a wall socket and it synchronized so might have been a faulty phone extension reel i was using to blame for my woes.
