Hi all.

I keep getting the following error when trying to connect to my broadband:

Warning! Insufficient Bandwidth

Other applications currently occupy the USB bandwidth.
Please close all other applications, then remove other USB

The only things I have got plugged in to USB are my modem and wireless mouse, I have changed back to the old wired mouse and that hasn't made any difference and I have tried the other USB ports (I have 2 in the front and 4 in the back) but that doesn't help.

The error is intermitent, I don't see it for weeks and then it will stop me conecting to my broadband for a day.

Any advice would be great.

Does your modem have the option of connecting with a network cable instead? If it does, I would try it. Also look in Device Manger for yellow exclamation points by the USB devices

Hi Mark,

No, my modem only has the option of connecting with the USB cable. I will have a look in the Device Manager when I get home.
