Supply a USB dummy plug with Broadband modem

USB power problems are a cause of unwanted broadband disconnections. This can occur when another device, eg. a printer, is connected to the second port of the modem's USB hub.

If a suitable dummy plug was included in the package, with instructions to fit in the second port, the situation could be avoided.

What do you mean by a dummy plug? Do you mean an externally powered hub or a PCI card to fit inside the PC with more USB socket availability?

Hi Chris, a dummy plug to prevent any other device being connected to the second port; as a reminder, really. This could be explained in the instructions.
