    I use an ADSL USB Modem on XP pro, and when I turn on my computer it somtimes wont detect it (the usb icon on the taskbar wont appear, and it wont connect)
    is there anyrhing I can do to make it work every time.

    hub

    is the modem connected to the usb port on the motherboard or to a usb hub.
    If its connected to a hub try swapping it and connecting it straight to the computer , The modem needs too much power to work correctly from a hub.

    thanx,
    well it it connected straight into the computer (no hubs no roughters).
    about the second answer (the acatel thing), is it o.k to install the alcatel drivers on a non-alcatel hardware?
