Freeze on connection with PCTel 2304WT on Inspiron 600m

[OOPS. Sorry. This should have been in the Inspiron Modem list. I guess I can't delete it from this forum though]

Most of the times when I establish an online connection using my 600m and the PCTel 2304WT modem (driver 2.50.52) the computer appears to freeze. Sometimes if I leave it for 5 minutes or so it will come back to life. Meanwhile the modem activity lights usually show activity (though I can't identify anything running in the background).

Sometimes I have to turn the machine off and reboot to get control back.

And after I connect successfully with the modem it will work find until I connect using VPN. Then it is likely to freeze again.

I've suspected either a modem driver issue or a video driver issue, but I don't see updates available for either.

Suggestions?

Dave
