This thread is locked. Is my old modem keeping my speed down? I guess I don’t need to plug the old Speed Touch in my new HP notebook but could setup a network with my tower which does well with the old modem? Are we seeing the end of the road for the Windows NT kernel? I saw some Bell techs working in the big brown box outside. I would like to make sure that there are no compatibility problems in that chain from Speed Touch, to a tower with XP and the right networking components, to a router, to the netbook with Windows 7 which comes with Intel WiFi Link BGN. If the compatibility options, using an older driver do not work, there aren’t a lot of choices left, except to replace that device with one that is compatible.

I would like to make sure that there are no compatibility problems in that chain from Speed Touch, to a tower with XP and the right networking components, to a router, to the netbook with Windows 7 which comes with Intel WiFi Link BGN.
After reading the threads here, I am much afraid to loose windowws grandfathered illimited by calling Bell.
Mystique44 Member Dec 9: Most commented news last week  Wednesday Morning Links  Grab that coffee! One thing sure, I speedotuch not buying my own modem and then paying Bell for the location. Some like separate modem router others prefer a all in one device I think the same concept applies to the “hated 2wire” its a personal thing The adsl technology used by the old Speed Touch is the same adsl technology used today.
According to the Windows 7 compatibility center, the manufacturer has windowws that this device is not compatible with the 32bit or 64bit versions of Windows 7.

Mystique44 Member Jan 8: Bell has milked you for the rental of this modem big time! Ysamyosemite Created on June 24, I don’t think the wondows is conflicting, it just reflects personal preferences.
Widespread Centurylink Outage this morning You can follow the question or vote as helpful, but you cannot reply to this thread. Could somebody confirm whether it is the technology of my old modem that limits my down speed at around kbps even though I now connect at 7 Mbps? Was the same down speed when connecting at 5 Mbps until recently.
Could the plan itself explain a cap of my speed? Harleyguy3 Member Jan 4: My tower does not have any networking components installed yet, and I don’t have a router yet. However that seems to leave me with the hated 2wire.
Hi, Let me try again. Bell has wireless router modems The 2wire HG-G is one. Mystique44 Member Dec 4: You should just ask Bell for a replacement modem.
And in fact, the red light keeps blinking on the modem. The ancient driver will not for Windows 7. Speedtokch situation has changed anyway.
Are we seeing the end of the road for the Windows NT kernel? I plan to ask for the change in the Direct forum.
Mystique44 Member Feb-3 4: I connect to the internet fairly easily there is not always a response from the netwrokbut often there is not data transfer working after the alcayel. Dear Comcast, I won’t use your email service HiVolt Premium Member Dec 8: How satisfied are you with this reply?
