2.1. Hardware/Software Troubleshooting
You will then see an option of 'Ideal time before hanging up' change the time limit too never, this should solve the problem.
This modem is USB 1.1 rated, this means that it requires the maximum power of 500mA. It has been found however that some of these modems pull more than the stated 500mA, you can see more about this here. Some motherboards, do/may not supply the full power required. If this is the case the modem begins to draw too much power from your system. When this happens, your motherboard may trigger a self-protection feature, which shuts down the USB ports. If you have any other devices attached to the same USB port remove them to see if the problem resolves. Some users have found that a powered USB hub or a PCI ADSL modem helps to resolve this issue.
Some users have found that the drivers v. 1.4 - shipped with the modem are the cause of the problem. By updating the drivers to the latest version of 1.6 users have found that the modem works more reliably. You can get the latest drivers here
There is also a known conflict with this modem and Via chipset in a number of motherboards. By installing the latest Via 4 in 1 drivers this problem is normally resolved here
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.
(Make sure modem is disconnected from Computer)
1. Right click my computer, and then properties
2. Open Device manager
3. DELETE all network devices and modems
4. Reset your PC
5. Reinstall the driver(s) as needed
6. Plug modem back in
With Bit Torrent you need to forward ports 6969(tracker) and 6881, 6882......6999! Unfortunately you have to do it one by one which would take ages, but you only need about 10 ports forwarded as its unlikely you'll be downloading more than 10 torrents at the same time so do the following:
Now when you start bit torrent your yellow status icon should turn green after a few minutes.
If you have more than one PC on a network, You'll have to go to 'Virtual server' and edit to change the IP Address for the 10 ports to the IP of the PC that you'll be using bit torrent on. Don't forget to Save any changes you make!
This guide can be changed to suit the required programs ports.
