OK...this may sound silly but does the modem affect how well the connection is?
i use a thomson speedtouch 330 and after googling it, realised that so many people, like myself keep getting a 'no dial tone' message.
i have tried reinstalling, updating drivers, mailing my ISP and thomson but nothing works so i am pondering the thought as to whether my answer my be a new modem.
If that is a solution then how much do u think i should spend? i want reliability at a reasonable price. So any suggestions on the modem model as well would be much appreciated.
