Modem not working

Hi, I've a Huawei E270 moobile which is not working.
For a number of weeks I had the modem and it auto installed perfectly and ran smoothly.
Then i tried out a friends Zte mobile.
Since then I've been un able to get the Huawei working.
It will install my networks interface but not the drivers. I went to device manager and and its recognising it as a mass storage device and modem. It is also in the ports section but it has an error symbol beside it.
The driver is not installed and it reads as a code 28 error and says 'access is denied'.
I have full administrator capabilities.Its a dell computer running on windows nt 2000.
I've uninstalled everything to do with the other network, cleaned the registery and still no luck.
Any ideas?

    Also I was given advice to delete vid_12d1&Pid_1003 in regedit but I was given access is denied warning . This is found in \\HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CURRENTCONTROLSET

Problems installing modem with Windows Vista

If your Internet Service Proviser supplied the modem they would have supplied the driver including the configuration detail embeded in the CD.
If you don't have the CD, you need to contact your Internet Service Provider for this setup info plus installation CD and if they didn't supply the modem then you need to go to the Siemens WEB site to download the driver for your model modem.

Cannot finish installation (Belkin F5D8633-4 wireless modem router N mimo)

ok, obvious questions first:

Do you have a different modem from TALKTALK? can you connect to the internet through that?

if so, you may not have to set a username and password for the belkin router: just connect the belkin router's internet port to the talktalk modem and let the talktalk modem handle the automatic connection.

do you know what protocol the talktalk ISP uses?  it's probably PPPOE; make certain that your belkin router is set to the correct protocol.  if you just hook it up to the talktalk modem though, you probably won't have to specificy a protocol at all.
