    Before you start "binning" anything you need to look at some other alternative reasons this may be happening. External modems are often better than internal ones but that isn't always the case. By all means test another modem in it if you can (if you have a Staples handy you can try it and return it you still have the same problem) but you also need to look at if you've installed any new software that may be causing it - including anythig provided to you by BT.

    By far the majority of problems like this are software based - not hardware and as you say in your post your modem worked fine with another service - if that's the case then it isn't likely to be your modem hardware that's at fault

    It may also be a driver issue - try to get the most upto date ones for your modem ad see if that helps

    Hope you get it sorted.
