Mains power connection and download speed problems

Hi, I have been using an Alcatel Speed Touch USB modem for years now (the same one) I recently upgraded my service from 512k to 8meg (with Orange) Until a couple of weeks ago (for several months) I would connect at about 6meg and then all of a sudden (one Sunday) NO CONNECTION After a bit of trial and error I figured out that I can connect only on battery power not mains...BUT ONLY AT 2MEGS From this I presume (and stand to be educated) that the modem works but can't handle mains power. However, last night I omitted to use the surge protection and it connected on mains power, after a re-start. However, today I can only connect on battery power, as it won't connect with surge protection (again at 2meg) Any help would be gratefully appreciated The Orange help-line is useless.. Regards, Darren

This is only a suggestion you might want to replace the modem after all you have had a good use out of it I think its finally tiring out? REPLACE IT you'll have much more fun with a newer one not to mention YEARS of fun.

How can you speed up an alcatel usb modem, can it only go at 28.8 kbps

A dialup modem can only go as fast as the phone line it's plugged in to, up to a theoretical maximum of 56kbs. If you live a distance from the exchange, or have a noisy phone line, the speed will be affected.

I can't get photos' from my phone to pc using USB wire

Hai, It is possible to connect the device and make it appear as a removable disk or mass storage device. The same as connecting a USB drive to the computer. To do that, go to Start > Settings > USB Connection mode on the phone. Choose Mass Storage and My storage in the drop down list. If you have a storage card, it will alse appear in that list. Now, all you have to do, is connect your device, open Windows Explore on the computer to copy/paste your pictures to the location you want. Again, this is a much faster way to transfer a lot of files rather than using WMDC to sync.
