Sounds like a USB problem. (Sorry, master-of-the-obvious here.) Since 
this was working before and the problems are new, maybe there is a 
hardware failure beginning to happen.

Then again a quick google to
shows lots of folks having issues with the Alcatel Speedtouch 330. Maybe 
read some of those articles. (My mailer may wrap the url, sorry.)

Also, you may want to consider upgrading to 6.0 (6.1 is due to be 
released very soon), or at least to the latest 5.x. 5.2.1 is kind of 
long in the tooth by now.

Look in /var/log, and browse through the file called messages. There may 
be some clues there.
