Windows 7: Internet connections lost when connecting HTC Desire

Internet connections lost when connecting HTC Desire

Hey ho peeps.

I have been having a major issue with my internet connection.

When i connect my HTC desire to use as mass storage, i instantly lose my internet connections.

First i lose the HUB, then i lose the hot spot connections.

I have installed all drivers and latest.

I have even done a complete overhaul and reinstalled windows.

But still this keeps happening.

I even went out and bought a new Wireless stick incase that was the problem.

Any help on this would be fantastic and greatly appreciated.

The problem has been solved.

Don't know why but i plugged ma HTC into a USB 3 port and the problem stopped. Still connected to the internet and the phone is connected also.

I did another search with a completely different search wording and found a Facebook thread that said some people had a USB 1 front port.
I could'nt believe this may have been the problem as my front ports should be USB 2 (check system specs below for case and board).
So, i just thought, i will go one better and try USB 3, and voila, it works.
