How to get Thomson SpeedTouch 330 to work in Windows Vista (build 6000) RRS feed

  • Question

  • My ISP is eclipse but should work with others as well.

    Go to http://speedtouch.com/support.htm and download the drivers for Win XP 64-bit (R4.0.0.5)

    Disconnect the modem from your computer.

    Install these drivers as Administrator and choose the correct settings (VPI/VCI 0.38 for Eclipse / TalkTalk). When promted, insert the modem into the USB connection and let it finish.

    Then go to Control Panel, Internet Options, Click Connections, Create a new connection by clicking Add (under Dial-up and Virtual Private network settings). Click on Show connection options that this computer is not set up to use. When the Dial-up option appears, select it. Enter the VPI/VCI value in the phone number box (0,38 for eclipse and TalkTalk), Then enter your username and password that you got from your ISP. Click create and you should get a message saying that your connection is ready. If not, check that the driver is installed properly.

    Click the Start menu and enter regedit and press enter. Go to the

    HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Servic es\Tcpip\Parameters

    directory and create a new key that you name "DisabledComponents" enter it and right click the default, change the value to 20. Exit regedit and reboot.

    Then click Start menu, Connect To, and Choose Dial-Up and Voila

    If there is a red cross next to the Dial-Up option, right click and enter properties, in the "Connect Using, disable everything except your ADSL modem, check that your VPI/VCI value is entered in the "phone number" box and click OK, Click cancel again.

    Open the Connect To again and now the Dial-Up option should be ready to use.

    Good Luck!
