Hi, In Lenovo`s website it says that Sierra Wireless EM7345 FRU 04X6014 has GPS as well. So, I installed it on my x1 Carbon gen2, its network is working perfectly but when I tired its GPS it isn`t. When I open Maps of Microsoft or installed other apps it didn`t work either. So, where could be the problem.. is it the app/program or it`s the modem I am using Windows 10 Pro Thanks,Kushtrim

WARNING!!! The instructions in this post are applicable only to EM7345 installed in Lenovo laptops!! For example, models T440, X240, X1 Carbon 2nd and 3rd gen, X250. For tablets or other devices don?t use the firmware given in this post, you can brick your EM7345! Unfortunately, the default factory EM7345 firmware version  (1.1) has some bugs. For example, after connecting to a LTE network and then disconnecting manually, the network status of the connection was changing for me to ?No service? until device restart. Also, the device often disappears from Device Manager and reappears there with the name ?1 CDC? and does not work until you disable and then enable it again in Device Manager. All those issues are caused by some bugs in EM7345 firmware.But there is a newer version of firmware, namely 1.2, where the above bugs are fixed. But by default, you cannot flash it, because firmware updating is supposed to work unattended. And this is not nice of Intel and Lenovo. The users must be able to do firmware updating when they need or want it! Bad, bad Lenovo, very bad! Here?s the instructions of how to flash your EM7345 to the latest version:Make sure you?re using Windows 8 or 8.1Go to the control panel and uninstall Sierra Wireless EM734x 4G LTE Software from Program and Features.Reboot your laptop.Download and install the latest EM7345 driver package from the Lenovo website. http://support.lenovo.com/us/en/products/laptops-and-netbooks/thinkpad-t-series-l...

How to flash the firmware of the sierra wireless em7345 on windows 10 ?  Its not possible through the steps i could find which was only for widnows 8. 

Answer:Sierra Wireless EM7345 windows 10

HiOnce the modem drivers are installed, including Intel flash tool, and the sim card inserted, during laptop cold start the flash service checks out whether newer firmware is available according to current modem fw and the sim card data (more clearly, cellular operator MCC/MNC values), and performs the flashing process if it's needed, in auto mode. You should see appropriate notification from the flash service in the system tray.

Dear All, I have a X1 Carbon with Sierra EM7345 WWAN modem. It is all installed perfectly - drivers etc. But id does not recognize the SIM card. I have googled a bit and I can say that:1) I have the drivers OK, I have the WWAN network adapter etc.2) I have inserted the SIM card correctly The SIM card works perferctly if I use the USB 3G stick instead. So the problem is not in the SIM card.I think there is some configuraiton of the Sierra modem which should be done - to switch to 3G/2G or something. Please help - one of the main reasons to buy this laptop was the embedded WWAN. Thanks.

Hi Support, I would like to change a setting, so that the Sierra Wireless Adapter only connects to 4G networks. In Windows 10, I cannot see anywhere where I can easily set this. I would expect there to be mobile management software where these settings could be changed. I never want to connects to GPRS, and would like my Sierra Wireless mobile card to only connect to 4G or not connect at all. This would prevent the card dropping down to GPRS when the signal is temporarily weak and force it it to try for a 4G connection. I have had similar functionality on prior USB mobile data cards I.e. Vodafone, and hence the expectation that there would be similar settings on the Sierra Wireless. Thank you, George

If I have understand correctly EM7345 is made specifically for Lenovo based on their requirements and specifications. Lenovo is also responsible for this firmware....on Carbon X1 etc...   I found an interesting AT command for Sierra Wireless EM7345. The command is ?AT+XCIQ?. There?s the following text string in EM7345 firmware file (it is present in any version so far): +XCIQ CIQ: Carrier IQ enable/disable.Let?s try to get ?help? about this command:  AT+XCIQ=? +XCIQ: (0-1) OK1234AT+XCIQ=?+XCIQ: (0-1) OKSo, we can suppose that 0 disables this Carrier IQ feature, and 1 enables it.Let?s read the current setting of this feature: AT+XCIQ? +XCIQ: 1 OK1234AT+XCIQ?+XCIQ: 1 OKLooks like it?s on by default. Let?s try to switch it off?NOTE: If you?re running firmware earlier than 1522.02, don?t enter the following command!If we try to enter: AT+XCIQ=01AT+XCIQ=0i.e try to disable Carrier IQ, EM7345 will have a fatal crash and reboot into boot flashing mode and it will be stuck there for good.So, Carrier IQ is always on and if you try to turn it off using the above AT command, that will kill the device!With firmware version 1522.02, AT+XCIQ=0 returns OK and there?s no fatal crash like in previous firmware versions. Also AT+XCIQ now accepts 3 possible values with 1522.02 firmware: AT+XCIQ=? +XCIQ: (0-2) OK1234AT+XCIQ=?+XCIQ: (0-2) OKSo, 0 must be disable, 1 enable, and what is 2?

I am using the EM7345 in my X1 carbon 2014 on a daily basis. It works flawlessly with my local 4G SIM. (No need for APN settings)I went to Spain for a week and tried 2 different providers: Labara and Hits mobile.They are both guesting in Vodaphone's network.In the network connection dialog they both indicate Vodaphone ES with an additional roaming indicator.When trying to connect they both ask for an APN string: gprsmov.lebaramobile.espc.hitsmobile.es After clicking connect it takes like no time till it says "cannot connect," I wonder,Windows bug?

Answer:X1 Carbon - Driver Sierra Wireless EM7345 ?

Hi, jkuengWhat's the OS installed on your laptop? For win8/8.1 there are no needs for drivers if the card is in MBIM mode. It must work natively in OS. Let's check it. Look at the Device Manager, open Network Adapters item. You should see something with AiarCard. Open Properties, Details tab, pull down Options list, find out an item Compatible ID. Looks like USB\Class_xx&SubClass_xx&Prot_xx). Copy the values and past here. Will look.
 
Also, could you, please, post here USB IDs of this card? Find it at the same list under Hardware ID item (looks like VID_xxxx&PID_xxxx).

Hi all,I've really been helped by this forum in the past, and really hope you can help with this issue.I've installed the card and installed the driver - all of which has gone down without a hitch. The compute recognises the card with no issues. Unfortunately, however, when a simcard is inserted it does not register the simcard whatsoever - 'Insert sim' is still present.In my searches on this forum it seems this problem is Windows 10 specific - the system does recognise the wireless card but does not recognise the simcard reader.

Hi , I have updated to the 1607 Anniversary Update in August and noticed that my WWAN Sierra Wireless EM7345 had problems starting up after reboot. Because of other problems with the 1607 I reverted back to 1511 and everything was alright again.A week ago I upgraded again to 1607 and again, my WWAN sometimes cannot start when booting up. The error log shows Miniport Sierra Wireless EM7345 4G LTE, {b343453c-24e6-493d-ba47-33eaec4de5e3}, had event Fatal error: The miniport has detected an internal error (details see below). So this clearly has to do something with the 1607 update or the drivers for the WWAN. I am using the latest drivers from the Lenovo website and have also tried to update drivers in device manager. But no luck. What helps to finally start the WWAN is either a reboot (the chances the WWAN is started properly are about fifty-fifty) or clicking WWAN off and on in flight mode options of Windows.  Maybe someone has an idea other than waiting for Microsoft to fix this stupid 1607? Thanks and best regards,Martin  Log Name:      SystemSource:        Microsoft-Windows-NDISDate:          10.10.2016 06:37:19Event ID:      10317Task Category: PnPLevel:         ErrorKeywords:      (16384),(16),(4),(2)User:      ...

I upgraded my Helix Gen 2 to Windows 10 with few problems except for the Sierra WWAN interface to Windows 10 settings. The cellular button on the wireless menu is greyed out and the cellular option page in settings shows no devices. The adapter setting shows the adapter, and on the Settings, Network & Internet , Airplane mode page show both Mobile broadband and Wi-Fi buttons. WWAN can be enabled by truning off Wi-Fi and turning on Mobile broadband on Airplane Mode settings page. With these settings, I can connect to WWAN Verizon and get to internet but:1. Settings, Network & Internet , Cellular shows no connections2. Wireless pop up menu shows Cellular and Mobile Hotspot greyed out. So, in summary, I can connect to WWAN, but only via Settings, Network & Internet , Airplane mode page using proceedure above. By the way, my upgrade to Win 10, switched on the rotation lock, but I was able to fix that in Win 10 settings in table mode.

If you have a W541 then you need the driver for the EM7355 card; that's what should be in the system unless the parts list and psref are mistaken.

HelloI got a totally new T450s with Windows 7 preinstalled. I did immediately an updgrade to Windows 10. Now the Sierra cellular modem is not working properly after inserting a SIM card (which works fine on another laptop). It says "Cellular No Service". The driver that is installed is "generic mobile broadband adapter" and not the Sierra Driver. I downloaded the lates Sierra Driver from the Lenovo website and installed it. Without success, it always installs the "generic mobile broadband adapter".Anyone any idea? ThanksAlexander Avidan

Answer:t450s Sierra Wireless EM7345 not working after upgrade to Windows 10

Welcome, Alexander Do you see broadband item on the cellular settings pane?The most likely cause of issue is APN setting missing in the connection profile. What is your operator name and what profile settings do you see?Win10 doesn't need modem manufacturer drivers for broadband access only, it uses built-in drivers. Also, there are default connection profile settings in the OS. If your operator is missing in that base or connection profile settings differ, you should edit profile on the cellular pane under administrative privileges.Anyway, I'm not sure em7345 modem in the Device Manager's "Network adapters" category in the win10 with OS built-in drivers installed should look like "generic mobile broadband adapter".

Hello everyone, I'm a bit desperate because I already tried so much.I'm running Windows 8.1 on my Lenovo X240, BIOS version 2.3 and the WWAN functionality broke about two weeks ago and I'm quite sure that this is related to a few updates that came either with Windows or more likely with Lenovo System Update which had a BIOS update and some driver updates alongside at that time.I cannot even try to establish a connection to the Deutsche Telekom LTE network, because all I'm seeing is "Insert a SIM" in the connection bar.This is what I tried so far:Use a different, well known working SIM card.Re-Install the driver packageUninstall and re-install the driver packageuse the "repair" function of the driver package setupBIOS downgrade from 2.3 to 2.29Disable and enable the WWAN functionality in the BIOSReplace the mainboard (lenovo service technician just went away an hour ago)And I'm still having the same issue. Now it's really nailed down to be either the BIOS or the driver in win 8.1 x64. One thing makes me wonder:When I choose to update the driver in the device manager and the Sierra card details, I'm pointing Windows direclty to the directory that contains the inf files and the device manager tells me that "The best driver software for your device is already installed." and shows me a "Generic Mobile Broadband Adapter". Is this an indicator for Windows completely ignoring all drivers in the setup directory of the driver package?Also, when I lookup the driver details, i... Read more

Is it really any good and practically beneficial?2. Can I use it on Fedora 27, How?s Linux support?3.

What is the impact on battery (Windows and Linux)?6. Is AliExpress a good place to buy? Thankyou  

Answer:Sierra Wireless EM7345 4G LTE Mobile Broadband FRU: 04X6014 for my ThinkPad X250

Regarding your questions:1) I personally use it and it's really good, as I don't want to use additional USB modem or WWAN wireless router.2) Can't say, as I don't use Fedora.3) There's a dedicated port for this module. Please make sure, that you have an antenna connectors for module and adapter for a SIM card. Moreover, instead of WWAN module, you can install there a m.2 2242 SSD disk.4) Both can be enabled and connected, but application will use one at time.5) I have an extended battery, so it's hard to tell. I guess it have a simmilar power usage as WLAN module (basing on Windows power utilization). Can't say about Fedora.6) It you don't want to have a problem with whitelist (it prevent system from booting, when unauthorized module is installed), then I look for module on eBay. Make sure, that photos explictly show FRU PN: 04X6014 on module's label. Models without it will not work.

Lenovo posted a security notice about the Sierra Wireless drivers yesterday.  https://support.lenovo.com/us/en/product_security/LEN-12739 In that it says that X1 Yoga should have a new driver version 2.36.10970.4674 at the following location, last updated 7/13/17.http://support.lenovo.com/my/en/downloads/DS112204 1)  That is not the version listed at the location.  That version is of the 7.34 variety, as so many of the machines use.2)  The drivers at that location say their last update was in February.  My download agreed, by naming it nz1wn03w(1).exe, meaning I had downloaded that file before.3)  Microsoft seems to insist theirs is the best driver, in device manager it shows I currently have Microsoft driver version 10.0.14393.1198 for the network adapter.4)  When I run it anyway, thinking maybe someone forgot to update the web page and file name, I'm told that the currently installed driver is better than the one I'm trying to install, and it does nothing. What am I missing?  What should be the next step? -Michele

Up until a recent Lenovo update I was able to connect to the Internet by either using the embedded Sierra Wireless antenna within my T61 or, more recently, through a tether connected to my Blackberry PDA.  After a recent Lenovo update to my system the drivers that allow my system to find these devices have vanished.  As such, I am no longer able to connect through Sierra Wireless device or Blackberry PDA.  Went a few rounds with Verizon but their conclusion was that the drivers are gone and that I need to 'reload Windows XP' to my system.  Not a great option.  Anybody have any sense of this problem, if so, a solution other than a complete reload of Windows?

Question: T440s with EM7345

I've got a T440s running windows 7 with a em7345 4g mobile module installed, the drivers install correctly and it recongnises the sim but fails to find the network (upon trouble shooting the connection windows suggests that there is no signal, however my phone uses the same network so I know this to not be the case). My best guess so far is that it's either something to do with the apn settings (I'm based in the UK and use the giffgaff mobile network which does require apn settings to be set) or there's an issue with the antena. No connection shows up in the VAN UI. Anyone with any ideas about how I could go about testing either of those things?

Answer:EM7345 Firmware - Best One ?

the lastest firmware is 1.2.. and here are the AT main secret programming codes and commands...(I do not want ...etc..publish more secret codes etc..do not ask for more..)..because they are too dangerous etc..to change the commands etc..use this software..PuTTYhttp://www.chiark.greenend.org.uk/~sgtatham/putty/download.html AT commands are very helpful for troubleshooting your device and changing the settings that are not available from standard Windows settings. For example, you can choose the access technology ? 2G, 3G, 4G and even stick to particular frequency bands.EM7345 is using Intel (formerly Infineon) AT command set and it?s not compatible with Quallcomm AT command set. All basic AT commands like AT+CFUN are more or less the same for all 3G/4G devices, but advanced ones, starting from AT+X, are unique to Intel XMM platform devices.No official documentation for AT commands was released by Intel, all I was able to find is some source code fragments for Samsung phones (that are based on the earlier XMM platform, like XMM 6380, or so)  on GitHub.To use AT commands, first you have to enable EM7345 AT command port, There are many cases when your newly installed EM7345 doesn?t work. Let?s start step by step.AT+CFUN?should return: +CFUN: 1,01 means the device is turned on. If it?s not 1, make sure your EM7345 is turned on in Windows Connection Manager.

I recently purchased a ThinkPad W540. And noticed my connection is dropping every few seconds.
 
First thing I did was getting a new SIM card. didn't change anything.Now I left Device Manager open by accident, and noticed the EM7345 was disappearing from the list and then appearing again. Does this mean the EM7345 is faulty?I have been unable to install the latest driver. It still shows the inbox Microsoft driver dating back to 2013 in Windows 8.1. I was hoping a firmware update might fix it. But to my understanding Windows 8.1 loads this firmware from the hard disk or SSD upon boot.
 
I confirmed the network card is also behaving the same in Ubuntu 14.10.Now I plan on calling Lenovo tomorrow for an on-site replacement.

Answer:EM7345 randomly disconnecting in new W540.

When it disappears do you see an unknown device called '1 CDC'  in Device Manager ? It always use Microsoft generic driver because it works in MBIM device mode (IOW there is no need for vendor specific network device driver, except the GPS). What firmware version do you have ? Follow this thread http://forums.lenovo.com/t5/ThinkPad-Tablets/Sierra-Wireless-EM7345-ThinkPad-8-and-10-general-issues...

I really like EM7455 but I am sure I will fall into the problem with "unsupported WWAN card ..."  which I know I can work around, but would prefer a clean solution instead. Is there any good alternative to EM7345 for T440 to get it working out of the box? Ideal would be official BIOS with EM7455 enabled in BIOS whitelist, which I believe is unlikely.

The only other suggestion from lenovo would be to reload the system, which is not an option in the field. Therefore I'm faced with sending the user a mifi card from Verizon, because a $200-$300 internal card wont work properly.   I'd ask for a refund if I had enough in the budget to order 4 new laptops. ...

Question: Sierra Originals

I managed to get Aces of the Deep installed just fine, but when I try to play it an error message pops up saying that the program is not a valid WIN32 application. I looked through the Q&A section but didn't find nothing about it.Does anybody have any suggestions.

Answer:Sierra Originals

You are most likely running Windows XP and Windows XP does not support most older (DOS based) games.

I've looked at the new macOS and it seems ok, not really worth an upgrade, but can you still disable SIP with:

Code:
csrutil disable
?

Rootless really bugs me for technical reasons and it's vital for me to disable it (well, SIP is the real name for it since root account still exists).
 

Answer:SIP and macOS Sierra?

I did the upgrade a week ago and I'm happy with it. Is it a performance increase? Not that I can tell. Is it a performance decrease? Not that I can tell. Am I using Siri or any of the features? No. Am I on the latest version of macOS? Yup. I think this last bit is very important for all technology.

Edit: Checking now.
Edit: Yes it does.

I've purchased an overdrive from Sprint to resolve my lack of internet while on the road in my RV. The unit works fine as to hooking up to the internet. However I am having problems with my network. While at home I use my desk top in my second bedroom, which runs Vista and I have a laptop in the living room, also running Vista. The overdrive is supposed to be able to share the internet with 5 computers, hookup a printer, download music and have memory storage. I have tried to setup file sharing between my two computers and am unable to get my laptop to find my desk top. The laptop shows on the network window on my desk top, but will not come up on the laptop. I have turned on all of the file sharing areas that I can think of on the desk top both have discovery turned on. I have also purchased a wireless adapter for the desk top to make it wwireless. I am picking up the laptop through the overdrive . I've contacted Sprint and no one has any idea what the Overdrive will do. Only that it gets the internet. Anyone have any Ideas?
 

Answer:Sprint sierra Overdrive

At the computer end, it appears to be a plain router.
Turn off any firewalls for debugging. If the firewall is the problem, you'll have to configure it to allow access to "trusted zone" addresses. Note that some firewalls must be completely uninstalled to stop them from affecting your networking.

Hold the Windows key and press R, then type CMD to open a command prompt.

In the command prompt window that opens, type type the following commands:

PING each remote computer by IP address, and if successful, PING by name. Open a command prompt as described above and type.

PING <ip address>
or
PING <computer name>

Where:
<ip address> - is the x.x.x.x IP address
<computer name> - is the computer name

A failure to PING is almost always a firewall configuration issue. Any failure to PING needs to be corrected before you go any farther.

Note: You can obtain the IP address and computer name of a computer by opening a command prompt (DOS window) and typing IPCONFIG /ALL. This should work for any Windows version. The IPCONFIG /ALL display will provide a wealth of useful information for debugging your network connection.

I have this rather irritating problem in that whenever I install the drivers/software for my sierra airport 595u card, it kills the usb host controllers. By kill, I mean I get "Windows cannot load the device driver for this hardware. The driver may be corrupted or missing. (code 39) errors. This is on both my laptop and desktop I've tried this on. I don't even have the device plugged in when installing, but when I reboot this happens. Uninstalling the software doesn't work, only system restore before the install or format and re-install. I tried comparability mode for vista, no go.

Answer:Incompatability with Sierra Wireless?

Quick update. Apparently the drivers can be loaded if you do it manually. The device won't actually connect without the sprint pcs connection manager's services running. As near as I can tell, running them causes the computer to be unable to re-start any usb style devices. Any ideas?

Hi!Please have a look at the attached screenshots.Why the floating -2nd- display below the main, primary, display?What is the smaller display box below the main one that I can left-click-hold and drag around?Why do I need this?I don't have multiple screens.I'm working on a new MacBook (see screenshot).Why the floating display?This causes the most annoying thing: wherever I've putit, when I mouse into that area my mouse disappears off-screen, causing me to have to mouse back up to see it.I hate that!Is there a way to turn this feature off?Thanks!

Answer:Why does sierra have a floating 2nd display?

SOLVED !!From this reply on https://discussions.apple.com//message/31797991]https://discussions.apple.com//message/31797991[/url]For some reason, your Mac thinks you have an external display connected to it. If you pretend along with it, select Mirror, and the mouse should stay on your desktop where it belongs.It's possible that resetting the NVRAM could resolve the issue: https://support.apple.com/en-us/HT204063, or booting into Safe Mode: https://support.apple.com/en-us/HT201262, or resetting the SMC: https://support.apple.com/en-us/HT201295Many thanks to "tjk" over there for solving this one!  :wink

When I open this graphics program I get the following message "An error has occurred in your program. To keep working anyway click ignore and save your work to a new file. To quit this program click close......" I double click on ignore and everything is fine until I want to print my card, when it comes up again. I've tried reinstalling the program but it didn't help.
Also when I print a card, borders, backround fillers etc. do not centre on the page. On a side fold card the left border is usually too far left, and on a top-fold card,the top border is too high. I've tried changing the print area values and the margins before printing, but the only thing that works is to manually move the whole design on the grid and this is a hit and miss affair, which wastes a lot of paper and ink - not to mention time and temper. Any advice out there?

While using Older 5.2 Sierra Generations family tree software I receive
the error "There is not enough freespace on the disk". I am using a
HP laptop with a 60G hard drive divided into 2 partitions (drives C and D)
of 30G apiece

Drive C: has 6.11G avail (this is where the Sierra program is along with the data)

Drive D: has 3.91G avail

This program used to work as it is...the data associated with
the Sierra Generations is small (78.8MB) and that includes
all my data I have inputted through the years...I have over
10 years worth of data that I need to use. I can see the
data, make new entries, save the entries, but I am unable

hard drive or my thumb drive using the export option.
Any ideas/help would be appreciated. I am at a lost.

Hi Ya'll... This what I'm trying to do. I need wireless internet at work/about town. I have a "t-moble Sierra aircard 750"
"A t-moble simm card for my phone"
" a laptop that can fit the aircard"
" A broadband connection at home that will give me
Free dial up service"
Now can I make the aircard dial the service? or do I need an "unlocked" aircard. See "t-moble" wants $29.99 per month for 56K
An extra simm card is just $9.99
My broadband dial up is also @100Kb
So do you see what I'm getting at?

Got Sierra Home Architect 4.0 and trying to run it on Windows 7. I've deleted the msvcrt.dll files and it starts. I have access to the custom library and such, but if I try to start with a blank design it crashes. I've tried the option to run it in previous versions of Windows, but still have that problem. Found one fix that wanted me to do something with files that don't exist on the disc.

Any ideas?

Hi All, I have Sierra EM7445 WWAN card and have X250 machine, while seraching the net about how can I use this card on my machine, I found and article on Zukato.com (HERE) about using this wwan card on x250 after changing the vendor and product id's. But author has not mentioned it clearly that How can a layman change the id's. Can anyone here explain about how can I do that ? Thanks in advance ! MK 

Answer:Using Sierra EM7445 on X250

I?m still using a previous generation Lenovo laptop, X240. It includes an m.2 slot for WWAN devices. All WWAN devices are currently using USB interface, and none are using PCI-E, so only USB connectors are required to function in laptop?s m.2 slot. USB version in X240 and X250 is 2.0 only. And Sierra Wireless EM7445 supports USB 3.0 already, so even if the device is capable of receiving LTE data very fast, using carrier aggregation, there still can be a real bottleneck in data throughput, because the device will need to fallback to the older USB 2.0 protocol when coupled with a previous generation laptop, like X240 or X250.Also every time I turn my laptop on or wake up it from sleep, I?m getting a Windows notification ?This device can perform faster. Please connect it to a USB 3.0 port?. Lto 6 tapes
