Question about Computers & Internet
How to connect the ZyXEL P660 RU2 EE to a laptop Acer with Windows8 operating system through a USB port. Windows 8 does not detect the modem at all. That's the problem. USB drive connected via USB port free. Service call Acer. It said that if the flash drive is read then everything is normal and should contact the manufacturer modem. With the modem manufacturer's website downloaded and reinstalled all the latest drivers. Internet still not connected. Please help if you can!

Have you tried using Ubuntu?
Personally, I have had nothing but problems with Vista and Win-7, which is why I switched to GNU/Linux. I've been using computers, and microsoft operating systems since DOS and windows 95. Ubuntu is the most user-friendly operating system which doesn't require driver installation from the user 99% of the time. Burn the free software onto a disc and try it out to see if you like it.
If you really intend on sticking with Windows, Make sure you are using the right version of the driver for your operating system. There is a 32 bit Vista and a 64 bit Vista.

All PCs provides power supply via USB port. The power is controlled by electronic circuit. Sometimes when overloaded the circuit burns out (the last controlling transistor, actually). This does not prevent the data communication, because it is separated circuit. But if the device is not powered it cannot communicate. When you plug the USB device to powered USB hub, then all go right.
Are you able to use the USB ports with other USB-powered devices like USB sticks, mouses, cameras? If not, the mentioned circuit is burned out. If they work OK, then your internal USB hub provides less power current than needed. In both cases there is nothing to do. The circuit resides on the mainboard of the laptop and replacement is expencive. Use it with that external USB hub you have.

Testimonial: "that makes sense, although sad that i have to get a powered usb hub somewhere, although i wouldn't know which ones are powered or not, i have this hub that has 4 ports that wouldn't work so i assume that one's not powered. tried to look for small hubs but it doesn't say anything about being powered or not, it'll be quite expensive to buy and try as much as i can. can you suggest a small enough powered hub anywhere? thanks again :)"
SOURCE: No working windows8 driver
Being a new OS the drivers are available for older systems or devices, sometimes you can use win 7 drivers 32 or 64 bit. The problem may be you have to modify the drivers to work with your specific machine. I had to do the same when I upgraded a Gateway MX6421 (born in 2005) to Win 7 pro N 64bit, I modified a few lines of code in the driver and changed the drivers compatible to win 7.
