Hi,

I have become very frustrated and have no idea how to start looking into the cause of my problem. I would just like suggestions as to what I can do to fix my problem. I have tried googling, reinstalling software, updating firmware, etc... and no luck. I have exhausted the options that I know of.

I have a Rogers mobile internet stick (Rogers Rocket), I use it during my lunch hours at work with my laptop so I can browse the internet and play poker. The past few weeks it freezes on me. It consistent in the sense that it will eventually freeze, although sometimes it's very frequently... like every few minutes, and other times I can use it up to an hour. I do not have access to a second computer to test the stick on. I do use my laptop at home connected to a router and I never have any problems.

I used the stick for a couple months and didn't have any problems. I then installed Windows 7 and I still didn't have any problems. It seemed like after a couple weeks of using it with Windows 7 it became a problem.

Could anyone give me suggestions on what to do?

Thanks

Perhaps this may shed some light. In particular the notice in yellow.

This is a toughy and let me say right from the start that I DO NOT use W7. It seems that all worked before W7 install, but worked for several weeks with W7, and then started to fail. Have you tried going back to original OS (XP, Vista)? That might be worth a try; if it then works correctly for a period then it would seem that W7 is the problem else it could be something corrupted in your box.

Good luck and keep us posted.
