ADSL modem crashes my computer....

Can you tell us what type of motherboard you have? This type of problem can be caused by an underpowered USB Bus.

The normal solutions are to purchase either a powered USB Hub or PCI USB Card, or ideally to change your ADSL equipment and use an ADSL router, which runs independantly from your PC and as such will not impact on the performance of your machine.
