Error Messages:

I recently purchased BT Broadband. And after installing all the relevant files I am prompted to connect the modem into the USB port.
But as soon as I do this the mouse and keyboard stops working. I remove the modem and restart the computer and it all works but when I plug the modem in again the same happens. I have done this many times and now the mouse and keyboard are not working at all.

I am running windows ME and know that the computer has the right requirements to run BT Broardband.Huh?

Some broadband modems and computers don't work so well using USB connection.  First thing I'd try is to hook it up via the NIC and see if it works there.
Also, call your ISP tech support in case of known issues.
Hope it helps and keep us informed through to resolution!

I agree with Haith, most broadband providers offer a USB and a NIC version of their modems (could be combo for some). If their support can't help, request the NIC version and get them to send you a NIC (network interface card) if you don't have one (if free with service, if not shop around).

If I get this right, now with the modem unplugged, the mouse/keyboard still don't work, right? Did you install/un-install anything? drivers, software....during your troubleshooting?
