computer reinstalling my broadband modem

By ferraridf ·
I have just recently installed broadband to my computer and since then my computer locks up when booting up just after verifing DMI pool. It also keeps reinstalling the modem and USB port root hub causing major conflicts. To top it off when i shut down my computer goes black and hangs and i cant even power off the modem. I am running winME why is this all happening. Thanks

External modem connected via USB cable and only USB cable (not both USB and ethernet) I assume.

Sounds like a resource conflict on bootup.

Recommend that an ethernet cable be used for connecting broadband modems where possible. It is better to add a NIC than to hassle with USB.

I don't have any other specific advice at this point. Additional information with specifics on hardware and connection details may help.
