strung together this:

I am on Demon BB & have a Speedtouch 330 USB modem. My problem is
that quite often when I try to logon I get an error "no dialling tone"
and can only logon after rebooting the machine. Sometimes I need to
reboot more than once.

Having never had the misfortune of having a USB modem I'm going off my
limited knowledge of the things but aren't they installed as dialup
connections? Can't you untick the box that says 'Check for dial tone
before dialling' in the modem properties, or am I in completely the
wrong area?

yes. There's probably no suitable error message available and while
the modem is another type of modem on the phone line, the comparison
and diagnostics are less than ideal. Indeed, perhaps more confusing
that the error is reported with an analogue modem's error message.

I always recommend a router now, having used USB for just 2-3 months.

Ok, I'll leave the USB problems alone then!

Yes, most definitely the best solution all round. I would never use a
USB modem for any reason other than, erm,.... well, never actully.
