I recently bought a mobile USB Broadband. After I use it for few hours or leave it to download over night, the computer gets stuck, or should I say the OS (Windows 7 Ultimate) gets stuck and I have to reboot. Any idea why or how to avoid it.

Yes go into your power options and set it so that your computer's hard drive never sleeps and make sure that the machine never runs low on power(If it is a laptop).

I use to have a usb network adapter also, and it always gave me the same problems. if it is a laptop always make sure it has more then 30% power on the battery or the OS might shut down the network adapter. and make sure if you are going to do something and leave the computer untouched you should adjust the power settings so the hard drive never turns off.

Everytime my computer went to sleep and I woke it up I always had a problem with the usb adapter.

I'll try, but the problem happened once while I was using the laptop. Actually I just rebooted the computer because I got a blue screen!

Some times I'd leave to download for 2-3 hours and nothing happens, so I don't the hard drive got anything to do with it.

But will try.

By any chance did you get any of the information that the blue screen was showing, and if so can you post the info.
