Warning: MS Windows Update Problems
Wednesday 10 April 2002 09:22:00 by
A number of our forum users have noticed a 'Windows Update' website driver download for the Alcatel USB ADSL modem.
Our advice is do NOT
let Windows Update the driver because the following problems are likely to occur:
The speeds reported by the diagnostics software are the wrong way around, it appears the upstream and downstream speeds are swapped - actual throughput seems unaffected. The worst part is that it
may overwrite the existing drivers with a set of PPPoE drivers, which is the common standard in the US - but not for all the world including the UK.
