Many people have had problems with the provided USB modems from their ISP and this is a regular topic that is brought up within the forum.
One way to solve this problem - and has helped many - is to purchase you own adsl equipment. It is the general consensus to avoid USB modems if at all possible due to the continued problems that occur with them, though it should be noted not all users have problems.
The most preferred type of hardware - based on forum users opinions - to use for your connection is an ADSL modem/router which can now be bought for as little as 50 though there are of course many more expensive models.
