Alcatel Speedtouch 330
Does anyone know the answer to thsi question I've been posed?
As far as I can find out they are a cheap as chips USB modem given away free with broadband packages and they shouldn't expect miricles. Does anyone here have one?
I am running Windows Vista and have an Alcatel Speedtouch 330 broadband modem. On at least 50% of the times that I rouse the computer out of Sleep mode, the modem fails to wake up ready for use and I have to reboot to get it to work. Have you any idea what could be causing this?

They certainly are. The Speedtouch 330 is about as give-away as you can get.
Unless you can get hold of proper Vista drivers, the next best thing to avoid a reboot is to remove the modem from the Device Manager in system properties. Then search for new hardware to get Windows to detect it again.

I'd suggest looking at the Vista specific drivers available here as a starting point.
Perhaps it could be to do with power saving mode in the device management side?

All advice I've read suggests you should never use any ADSL USB modem with Vista as many of it's features aren't deisgned with using a modem in mind. That plus most DSL modem drivers are ancient and designed for use with windows XP. Buying a cheap-ish DSL Router would be a much better option than trying to troubleshoot modem issues IMO.
