Sierra Wireless broadband modem in W500

Question: Sierra Wireless broadband modem in W500

I just purchased a ThinkPad W500 that is cellular wireless ready. I have an old ThinkPad T60 that has a Sierra Wireless cellular modem. Can I use this device in the W500? I understand I could get a SIM card for the W500 but if I can use the modem from the T60 machine I don't think I would have to activate a new account with Verizon.

I have just taken delivery of a B50-30 All in One and it doesn't recognise my Telstra 4G Broadband Modem Device which plugs into a USB port and imports a Connection Manager which then initiates connection to the internet.. Although the machine makes  a tingle when the modem is plugged in (have tried all different USB ports) - this would seem to indicate that it recognises a new device - the Connection Manager icon doesn't pop up. The modem User Guide says it can be loaded manually by finding and clicking on the file "setup.exe". Couldn't find this file even though there is virtually nothing on this brand new computer. Any help appreciated.

Answer:Sierra Wireless Broadband modem not detected

Hello,
 
does this Device appear in the Device-Manager?
Maybe there appear a new folder under "My Computer", when you plug in the Device, where the setup.exe is located.

I have a Thinkpad T60.   I had to reload Windows.  Now I cannot get the wireless modem to work.   How can I reload the driver?  It is a Sierra Wireless MC5720 modem.   Where can I find the driver?

Answer:Sierra Wireless modem driver

I did the exact same thing to a T61 w/ winxp pro. I don't particularly like that laptop because I cannot stay connected to internet long enough.  But, I got all my drivers from the lenovo website(Good Luck!):http://www-307.ibm.com/pc/support/site.wss/product.do?template=%2Fproductselection%2Flandingpages%2F...

Hi,I'm using the X61 with the build in Sierra Wireless MC5725 Modem. I've installed the drivers and everything else needed to run the device correctly except the Access Connection soft (not a big fan). Currently I'm running Windows 7 RTM (MSDN) 64bit Professional (alto I had the same problem on Vista Business 64bit). I've set up an dial-up connection and every time I try to connect I'm getting the 633 - device in use error. The Device Manager's saying that the device is working correctly but when I try to query it I get this in the log: 10-31-2009 16:21:07.454 - File: C:\Windows\system32\tapisrv.dll, Version 6.1.7600  10-31-2009 16:21:07.455 - File: C:\Windows\system32\unimdm.tsp, Version 6.1.7600  10-31-2009 16:21:07.456 - File: C:\Windows\system32\unimdmat.dll, Version 6.1.7600  10-31-2009 16:21:07.457 - File: C:\Windows\system32\uniplat.dll, Version 6.1.7600  10-31-2009 16:21:07.459 - File: C:\Windows\system32\drivers\modem.sys, Version 6.1.7600  10-31-2009 16:21:07.460 - File: C:\Windows\system32\modemui.dll, Version 6.1.7600  10-31-2009 16:21:07.463 - File: C:\Windows\system32\mdminst.dll, Version 6.1.7600  10-31-2009 16:21:07.463 - Modem type: Sierra Wireless Modem Device10-31-2009 16:21:07.463 - Modem inf path: oem12.inf10-31-2009 16:21:07.463 - Modem inf section: SWMODEMx6410-31-2009 16:21:07.463 - Matching hardware ID: swmuxbus\sw_modem_1_vid_1199&pid_022010-31-2009 16:21:07.463 - Opening ...

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.

I've got a new X61 which had an internal 3G modem, the Sierra Wireless HSDPA MC8775. It comes with a Vodafone Mobile Connect application that should work with the modem BUT I can't get them to work together - the Modem drivers always seems to time out when I query the modem and the Vodafone application says it can't locate the SIM card. I've udpated the Modem drivers from the Lenovo site to V2.0.13.0 dated 11/01/2007. However Lenovo does not publish an application to manage the connection even though it sticks a Vodafone logo its hardware. Vodafone list Vodafone Mobile Connect software - version 5.10.0020 (Last Updated: 28.06.06) as compatible with the X61.http://online.vodafone.co.uk/dispatch/Portal/appmanager/vodafone/wrp?_nfpb=true&_pageLabel=template1...I can't get this app to work with the drivers. It seems really strange that the listed compatible appication is so old. Vodafone have a new version of their applicatuion.

Help.Have a new broadband connection with a bt voyager wireless modem/router. I am struggling to set up my desktop and laptop. I have the desktop connected to the modem and surfing the internet fine. What I want now is to set up the laptop so I can carry on sharing files (via briefcases) as I did when just the 2 computers were involved in the wireless network and so I can surf the net from the laptop if i want. The pc has a USB belkin network adapter, the laptop a belkin wireless card. Both run win xp pro.Have struggled all day as the laptop is searching for my old network and the desktop has connected to the 'btvoyager' for broadband. I have tried the home networking wizard and it messes everything up! I know when i set up my home wireless network I had to manually configure the ip address for the 2 computers to get them running and sharing a dial up connection through the pc. Any ideas?

Looking for opinions here. Having eventually secured a refund (or the promise of one) from Dabs for a faulty Actiontec Wireless DSL Modem Router, I an looking for a replacement and seem to be down to either the Netgear DG 824M or the D-Link DSL 604.Price is a consideration, I don't want to go more that around 150 and prefer an "all in one" piece of kit.Any opinions would be welcome.

Answer:Wireless Broadband Modem/Router

I would go with the Netgear option as the customer service you will receive from them is second to none.It is definitely worth the extra.In regards to spec, both of them will be pretty much the same and you will get recommendations for them both from a lot of people on this forum.RegardsFitshase

Hi, all.

Is there a workaround for setting up a wireless network ( peer-to-peer ) with laptop and PC both running XP Home, with a wireless router and USB modem? I know that the usual method is either a wireless router with ADSL built in, or a broadband modem using a NIC socket, but this situation has only the Speedtouch 330 broadband modem which has just USB connectivity, and the wireless router has only a NIC socket. Any ideas?

Many thanks in advance,

Joyous Monkey
 

Answer:USB broadband modem on wireless network?

You'll have to use ICS on the machine that has the Internet connection, that will allow you to connect to the Ethernet port and have connectivity. Since the ICS will basically make your host machine look like a router, you'll want to connect the wireless router as if you were connecting two routers. Here's the instructions for connecting two routers.

Connecting two SOHO broadband routers together.

Configure the IP address of the secondary router to be in the same subnet as the primary router, but out of the range of the DHCP server in the primary router. For instance DHCP server addresses 192.168.0.2 through 192.168.0.100, I'd assign the secondary router 192.168.0.254 as it's IP address.

Disable the DHCP server in the secondary router.

Setup the wireless section just the way you would if it was the primary router.

Connect from the primary router's LAN port to one of the LAN ports on the secondary router. If there is no uplink port and neither of the routers have auto-sensing ports, use a cross-over cable. Leave the WAN port unconnected!

Hi, i have a NTL broadband internet modem installed on my PC, it isnt using the Ethernet socket if thats important information?Can i buy something to make this give out wireless signals?What isit i need to buy, a router?And how would i set it up ?Also, would installed a router (if thats what i need) make the PC run off wireless signals, or would it still use the NTL modem and give off signals to other computers in the house, (eg. my laptop)Thanks in advance!

Answer:Can i make my NTL broadband modem go wireless ?

Assuming that your NTL broadband is over your telephone line, you'd need to replace the modem with an ADSL modem router (this is a separate box). You'll also need a wireless adapter (USB is easiest) to plug into the computer. You can often buy a package that includes the router and the USB wireless adpater in one box. The kit should come with instructions.The router should also support wired connections (using ethernet Cat 5 cables). Note that it is recommended to have at least one PC set-up with a wired connection as wireless is not 100% reliable and if you have problems with the wireless you won't be able to access the router to sort things out (as it is the router that connects to your broadband service and holds all the login information etc.). So if you only have one PC, it is best to stick with wired (or at least set it up so that you can use both wired and wireless).I would guess that it is pretty similar if your braodband is over cable, but I don't knwo the details.

Hi,I've installed a speedtouch 585v6 wireless router now to my desktop and its up and running using tiscali b/b, but when I did a speed check on thinkbroadband it comes up with a downstream speed of about 370k. Wasn't sure whether this was a problem with the new wireless link or on tiscali dsl. So I plugged my old modem back in (BT Voyager 105) and it showed a downstream of 4M, so I don't think its Tiscali.My PC is quite old, and doesn't have a network card, but it ran much faster with the old adsl modem. Unfortunately I do need to go wireless as I need to connect up a second PC.

Answer:Can you set up wireless broadband internet modem to a router?

If your ISP's cable modem also provides wireless then it's probably also a router. Best way to confirm exactly what it is is to tell us the exact make/model of the device. Look for a metal tag on it (usually on the back where the cables connect or on the bottom) and give us the make/model

Toshiba Satellite X205-S7483, Windows Vista Home Premium x86 SP1, Slingshot Wireless Broadband using Novatel Wireless Ovation USB modem.

The modem is connected through one of the two primary USB ports on the left of the laptop. The connection manager software that came with the modem is up to date. The problem is I'll be surfing the Web, downloading something, basically any time I'm online, the modem will be deactivated, as though I had unplugged it from the USB port.

I have disabled the option in Device Manager to allow Windows to deactivate USB devices to save power. This helped for about two days, but now the problem has resurfaced. Does anyone have experience with a problem like this?

Hello all,

I have a M110 Satelite mahine running XP SP3.

I have tried two different brands of Wireless USB modems. Both install the modem portion of the drivers corectly and the Device Manager shows this. However the Coms Port drivers do not install. The installation wizard gives the message "Driver's did not install correctly, Access is denied".

The modem providers cannot explain the failure as the modems will work on my desktop (vista) machine without any issues just plug and play so to speak.

I have tried -

1)disabling all anitvirus and firewall programs.
2)disabling and/or removing all other modems and internet connections
3)updating BIOS
4)re-starts completed after all above steps
5)Checked all drivers are the latest and most up to date.

Reverting to the "out of box" state by re-loading windows is not an option as I run a number programs on my machine which are no longer available in the format I use in my business. Some suggestion has been made by one tech that the Windows Registry Values are incorrect and are blocking the installation?

Answer:Satellite M110: Wireless Broadband USB Modem fails to Install

You said, that the Wireless USB modems works on your desktop with Vista. Do the modems support Windows XP or Windows XP SP3?
I would make a downgrade to SP2.

Furthermore I think the best way would be a reinstallation of Windows. If it?s not an option, test it on an other HDD in notebook.
So you have no risk to loose your data.

Not sure if this is a problem, more just a question... I installed a brand new Sierra EM7455 WWAN module a few days ago in my X260--got it direct from Lenovo. Getting it working was a little convoluted (had to reset BIOS) but it connects just fine to AT&T. The question or concern I have is when ever I restart the computer, I get a pop-up in the lower right that says "Configuring mobile broadband device...Do not shut down or restart Windows." It takes about 1-2 minutes, says "success" then everything is fine. The "problem" is that this happening every time I reboot. Has anyone seen this or know what's wrong? I've attached a screenshot of the message. I installed the official Lenovo drivers for the EM7455. I tried uninstalling the Sierra package and the message goes away--but so does the WWAN module... I re-installed the driver package and now the message is back. I had an X250 with the previous gen Sierra WWAN module and it was generally trouble free, no strange issues like this. Thanks

Hello, I just installed a mc7710 modem in my X230 laptop, it shows up the first time I install in but after reboot its gone?? I tried the mc7710 in another laptop (HP) and it works out of the box when drivers from sierra homepage is installed. I also discoverd that if i tell the X230 to hibernate and then wakes it up the device shows up for about ten seconds and then disapears again.The only thing that is visible in devicemanager is some "Sierra wireless locator" , thats the only thing about th mc7710 that is vissible al the time. I have upgraded to the latest firmware and latest bios, running win 10 but I can install win 7 if requierd. My guess is that there is some "sleep-mode" or something that turns off the device but where can I find the setting for that?? P.S The 3G modem that where installed previous to the mc7710 was working properly.

Answer:X230 Sierra mc7710 modem

HiDoesn't the mc7710 exist in the "Network Adapters" thread of the Device Manager? Is there mc7710 related port in the "Port" thread? Are there unknown devices in the DM after mc7710 disappears? Is the OS win8/8.1? What fw and drivers are installed? What USB vid/pid IDs does mc7710 have while it's visible in the DM?I didn't hear about such mc7710 behaviour earlier. W/o additional information I'd assume the cause is USB Selective Suspend Mode and its drivers.

I've been trying to fix a problem with my Lenovo T460S for months now, with hours spent on it and no success. The thing pops up with "Configuring mobile broadband device" every time from a fresh start, which takes about 30 seconds to complete. I've read this is to do with the SierraEM7455 onboard, but there is only one driver available for this on the website, and this does not fix the problem.  Does anyone know how to fix this? I'm getting very frustrated with it.

Answer:T460S "Configuring Mobile Broadband Device" every time on power up (Sierra EM7455)

HiThere is a solution in another thread where you've posted short question about issue with em7455 - disable Selective Suspend Mode drivers.Navigate to the folder where em7455 drivers package from Lenovo site is extracted (usually c:\drivers...). There should be Lenovo7455DriverSetup installer and Configuration.ini file. Open the latter in the text editor like Notepad. Add the following string in the 1st section [Default Values]:SS=0It'll disable SS mode drivers installation. Save the file, reinstall the drivers. I'd advice to remove existing modem drivers firstly.

Just got my x300 and downgraded from Vista to XP sp 3. I'm trying to activate the integrated Verizon Wireless card, Lenovo lists it as Sierra 5720. I've downloaded the driver, ran it rebooted as well as the update and the instructions say to go to device manager under "Modems" or "Systems" to look for the drivers but I find no listing of "Modem" before or after I installed the drivers. (Also I called Verizon Wireless and they have no information on integrated cards in x300's and VZAM.net does not list a download for the x300.) When I called support they told me to send my laptop in for repair or just return it because it's defective! Also I think there is something wrong with the mouse and keyboard as sometimes they stop responding or only get 1/2 of my input.

I just recently subscribed to Sprint Mobile Broadband from the 3G store, and I got the 598U Sierra USB Modem for $30, a free antenna, and bought a router from them.

My question is about the 5 gig limit that Sprint has on it's $60 a month service. If you exceed the limit, you get charged extra. Is there any type of tracking software that shows how much bandwidth has been used?
 

Answer:598U Sierra USB Modem & Sprint Mobile 5gig limit

What router are you using?

Usually when you use the aircards on your laptop the connection app keeps track of usage (I know sierra's apps do from experience, as does verizons). Through a router it depends on what you are using though.

Question: W500 and Broadband

Hi Everybody!!!Im goint to buy a w500 notebook and I have question about Integrated Mobile Broadband.I would like to know what does it means and how can I use it.I think this is to insert a Sim Card so I can connect to internet via 3g.I also would like to know if I can use it outside USA with a Sim Card from my country. If I can... Which option should I choose?What is the Integrated Mobile Broadband Upgradable? Thank you very much for your help!!Marcelo 

Answer:W500 and Broadband

Integrated mobile broadband means exactly what you say. You can insert a sim card and connect via 3g and instead of a USB or some other kind of adapter it's built into the laptop. You can also use it outside on the US. I got a W500 with the integrated mobile broadband and use it in Europe. I'm not sure about the standards in your country though so not sure what option you should chose, but i'm sure someone else got the answer for that one. With Integrated Mobile Broadband Upgradable the computer got everything built into the computer except the PCI express adapter that is required for using the mobile broadband. Everything else (built-in antenna and the sim card reader) that is required to use mobile broadband is built-in. If you buy a Thinkpad that is "Integrated Mobile Broadband Upgradable" you can buy this adapter separately and it's pretty easy to insert. The price for the PCI express adapter where i live is about $70 so not that expensive. I had to buy it separately because the W500 i picked i couldn't find a model on stock with the broadband adapter included.

Hello, I upgraded my W500 to Vista x64 and all seems well. Installed the driver for for the AT&T WWAN Ericsson F3507g and it installed just fine. Trouble is, any ThinkVantage Access Connections Manager I have installed (and there are several in the IBM site) all come up with an error saying they will not run on this platform. Could anyone please help me find any Vista 64-bit connection manager that will allow me to connect to AT&T 3G? If anyone is using 64-bit Vista with AT&T WWAN and are able to connect, could you please let me know what connection manager is working for you? Thanks.

OK I know I screwed up somewhere. I installed Win 7 64 Pro and started my methodical downloads. I don't think I missed anything - but now my WAN light pretty much stays on  (after the new AT&T/Vodafone Driver) - but I cannot connect to my my provider : diagnostics says WAN Radio Not Powered On. Well at first I was able to pull up Function F5 - but clicking on the Power On accomplished nothing. I rebooted - and after 3 reboots could not even get FN F5 to do anything at all! I would press it and the screen would serenely display nothing. WiMax is gone. MyWiFi is gone. Only my local wireless works in my house but my cellular broadband connection is gone as if it never existed. I tried everything too. Download the Vista Hotfix. Nope. Open port in firewall...err no - cannot even locate the numbered UDP port it mentioned. I'm in trouble here guys - is there a fix? (Besides the one I'm in?)

Hi guys and fellow lenovo owners. I just got meself a w500 and was wondering about accessories to it. I come from using a good old trustworthy T40 wich unfortunately suffered from the usb2.0 -> usb1.1 motherboard failure thingy, and then finally started showing signs of the gpu soldering issue as well wich made me buy this w500. Aaaanyway, I was using my T40 with portreplicator in 3 different locations, had a million spare batteries, ultrabay battery, ultrabay hd caddy, car-charger etc etc. All that stuff I bought from ebay.co.uk very cheap compared to having to buy them locally here in DK, but if I search for ibm w500 on ebay today, I don't get much hits. I know the model is pretty new to the market, and more stuff will most likely appear as time goes by. But then I noticed that this model might share parts with another model like the T61. Can anyone confirm if - and if so - wich parts from maybe the T61 or any other model matches accessories to the w500. My initial investigation tells me that w500 fits in a port replicator for the T61, and they use the same type of battery. Havent seen anything about the ultrabay, but if they match too, I would be able to find all the stuff I need a lot faster as I get a lot more hits for stuff for the T61. Lastly, when I looked at specs for this w500 I read something about being able to insert a mobile broadband sim card to be able to use mobile broadband with a usb-modem or whatever you might have to establish the connection....

Answer:Accessories and mobile broadband on the w500

For anyone interested. I just got a reply from where I bought this thing, that I need to purchase some expansion card for the mobile broadband to work. For somewhere around 200$, he also confirmed that the w500 uses same power supply and dock as the T61, but NOT the ultrabay units. So now I'm gonna go powershop some stuff on ebay, and wait for my store to have the wwan expansion card and a ultrabay hdd caddy ready for sale so I can order them.

I have a Lenovo X230t (tablet)  model 3434CTO that came with the Broadband upgradeable option.I asked the sale rep from Lenovo that sold me the x230t, for the Broadband Modem card, but she said they have none in stock and I would have to get it from a 3rd party, and the part number to get is 0A36186.So I purchased one brand new online and installed it.  The broadband modem card is recognized as a F5521gw......the driver installs fine, along with the update/drivers from Lenovo x230t support.I place my Rogers sim into the sim slot (properly oriented as in the service manual), but Acess Connections says "Sim card not present..."I have went back to rogers 3 times and tried 3 different sim cards......they all  report SIM card is not present. Insert card and try again.  Yet the cards all worked fine in a cell phone at rogers. I tried calling Lenovo tech support, twice, but had a bad phone connection both times and could hardly hear the tech and him hardly hear me.  but anyways what he ended up saying was that I need a Gobi Sim card!  Well, my rogers store rep broke out laughing and brought in 2 other rogers personal and told them, and they broke out laughing.........then said the only sim's that will work on the rogers network is a rogers sim.  They said the Lenovo tech is confused and that gobi makes the broadband cards only and not sims. So, now I need the truth.  How do I get my Rogers Sim card to be recognized?Is the Lenovo 0A36...

As of today, I am the proud owner of a W500. Came with built-in Vodafone mobile broadband, incl an offer for a 30-day no-charge trial for UK customers (of which I am one). Just need to register with Vodafone and off you go. So far the theory. The practice is that the ICCID registered with the W500 is not recognised by the Vodafone online registration system, and the Vodafone sales and support people don't seem to have any idea how to activate the trial, either. Am mightily peefed about this - so peefed that I have emailed the Vodafone CEO just now. Anyone else here succeeded registering for the trial? If so, can they share any hints and tips?  

Answer:W500 with built-in Vodafone mobile broadband

hifirstly you wont be long a proud owner of a W500, the machine sucks, standby for hassle with it, oh its already started!my online registration didnt work online, i had to go back to lenovo, and vodafone, in the end vodafone sent a new sim card through, and gave me a trial period based on being a new potential customer, rather than as part of the machine trial offer. i have signed up permanently now and it does work, though with the same signal problems as a phone experiences.rgds

Hi all, Please help.  I'm having no luck with my WAN adapter, which is very critical to my continued use of this computer. I just got this thing today.  Before plugging in the battery, noticed the AT&T SIM card (pre-installed).   And maybe this was a mistake, but I pulled it out ot look at it.  I thought the plastic underneath might be some sort of shipping protection, and I tried to rip it out.  I didn't put *too* much force on it though.. and now I realize it's probably just used to pull the sim card out after insertion.  I put the card back in, in the same direction as the icon on the plastic suggests. Anyways, I powered up... and no sign of the "mobile broadband device".  I went into Thinkadvantage ->  Mobile Broadband Connect, and that's the error that comes up.  No sign of it within the control panel/device manager either. I've checked the build for my serial number online, and it absolutely does include the WAN adapter.  Anyone have any suggestions?  Do I need to send this thing back?

Answer:W500 WAN "Mobile Broadband device not found"

I've been trying to insert my simcard as well with no luck. If you don't have the green button for mobile broadband, but a grey one instead, changes are you have to purchase some sort of expansion card that supports this. This is what I was told where I purchased my w500, they haven't yet made it available in their shop, but as soon as they do, I'm gonna order it. It's gonna set me back another approx 200$ wich I find kinda weird that it wasn't included in the first place. The way I see it, the simcard "dock" doesn't have any kind of justification without the support for the mobile modem as well. Just another way to make the machine cheaper I guess, and for those who don't need the mobile broadband to save a couple of bucks. But I'd say the info as to buying the machine is wague in this department, I too was expecting I could just pull the sim from my usb dongle, insert in the ibm, and off we go.

Hi Everybody!!Finally I purchased the Lenovo w500 notebook and I'm really happy with this product.I have one question about using the Ericsson f3507g Broadband mini Card to connect to a 3G network outside United states.The notebook i have purchased came with the AT&T broadband.Of course I cant use it because I'm outside united states. So, I would like to use it with my 3g internet connection.I've tried to set up the connection but I had no success.I can only connet throught GPRS/EDGE but not to the 3g network using my SIM card.I have read a lot of information over internet but it is not clear.As I told, I can connect to edge using Access Connection but not to 3g despite the signal strenght is very good.I also tried to set up a dial uo connection and connect directly without using access connection, but I had no success. The dial up connection try to connect but it is not possible.Can someone help me about this issue?I don't know what else to do!Thank you in advance!Marcelo

Answer:Ericsson f3507g Broadband mini Card on w500

Depending on your provider, you might have something that is 3g, but in your area doesn't support it. For example, when I'm on holiday in Finland, Finland has 3g providers, but where I'm located "at the cottage at the lake" I'm connected to a mast that only supports GPRS/edge. The area is not very populated, thus they haven't upgraded that mast yet, they start with dense populated area-masts and work their way down, or maybe they just decided that the traffic on this mast is enough for it to be updated etc. Here at home in Denmark, I have 3g connection because my everyday home is located in a populated area, and my local mast does in fact support 3g. Anyway, try searching for a coverage map from your provider, maybe your local mast isn't able to give you 3g connections at all.Message Edited by OrosAraba on 26-03-2009 09:07 AM

Hi All, I am having a problem with the Verizon Broadband access in my W500. I am able to connect and it works for a while, but then stops working. Access Connections still claims that it is connected, but I cannot send or receive and data. Disconnecting and reconnecting does not work either. The only fix is to turn off the card (using the hardware switch that turns off all wireless devices) and then turn it back on again. It then reconnects and works for a while before dying again. I just got this W500. It has the Qualcomm WWAN card. I have updated to the latest Access Connections (curiously enough, I seem to have version 5.10 whereas the latest version on the web site is 5.02). One other comment: the documentation for the Access Connections 5.02 claims that I need version 6.0.5.1 or higher of the Thinkpad UNDP Wireless WAN Driver. I seem to have version 6.0.3.2. But, I can't find 6.0.5.1 anywhere. I am running Vista 32-bit. The Verizon Broadband used to work very well on my previous T61p with the Sierra modem and the Verizon Mobile Broadband software. Thanks for any help. Cheers,Niranjan Suri 

Answer:Problem with Verizon Broadband (Qualcomm Card) in W500

Hi, I am only posting to offer some additional confirmation of the problem, so hopefully Lenovo will come to our assistance. I too just got my W500 (12/10/2008) and I also have the exact same issue and have been trying to figure out a resolution ever since. My Verizon Broadband access only stays connected for a short while and then stops working.  Access Connections also still claims that it is connected however their is no connection.  I also had version 5.10 of access connections installed with my computer even though 5.02 is latest version available on the web. I am also having similar problems with wireless connections, which makes me think it isn't a Qualcomm card issue. The basic symptom is just that the network drops connections after a short while (either with Verizon/Qualcomm card or wireless Intel card) and access connections still shows a connection but their isn't a connection.   I was intially using an external USB Verizon adapter that I had, but I was having problems with it as well so I decided to try the internal card hoping that would fix my issues. It initally appeared that having a USB hard drive or using a bluetooth device caused the network to drop more frequently, which made me think maybe it was a power issue.  I called tech support and they had me send in my laptop and replaced the system board, but I just got it back and it still has the same issue which is extremely frustrating as now I feel I have a ...

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...

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?

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.

Whether the second device (com port?) had appeared in the Device Manager?4. Is location feature, based on the em7355 card, enabled in the win10 settings menu?5. em7355 location features might depend on the drivers installation options, similar previous Gobi gererations. Navigate to the folder where the drivers package is extracted, with .msi installer inside. There should be .ini file with options for installer. Post its content here.6. I hope you know the 1st fix after wwan modem based on GPS sensor cold start needs a long time, 10...20 minuts and more, especially indoor

I would like to purchase a carrier unlocked Sierra Wireless EM7455. Is it possible to update/modify the firmware on the Lenovo CRU part, allowing alterantive to At&t and Verizon carrier options? Does anyone have a trusted source to buy unlocked versions that work with Lenovo MoBo's?I'd like to use T-Mobile (via google fi) in the States, and Three mobile in Europe. Also if the Lenovo part is able to be unlocked, which of these two is the one to be ordered? What is the difference?http://search3.lenovo.com/search?w=sierra%20wireless&fsearch=yesThanks

A friend of mine has a P50, and was interested to know that he could have gotten it from Lenovo with a Sierra Wireless card already installed.  Is this something that he and I can do (I'm a hobbyist desktop builder), or is there some unchangeable difference in the motherboard?  Which Sierra Wireless card fits best and works in the US on the Verizon network?

My lenovo came with Sierra Wireless MC5725 for use with Verizon's EVDO network. VZAccess manager (Verizons POS software) told me today that there was a firmware update for my Sierra Wireless device. This update failed, and now my device won't work.  I basically can't enable the device.  It doen't show up in my network list, and I can't turn it on using the fn+F5 screen. Where can I get the firmware for this thing?  Sierra Wireless says they don't support these OEM devices, and Lenovo has nothing regarding firmware on their site, only drivers. I hate Verizon.

Hi - I've got a Lenovo Thinkpad X300 with an OEM Sierra Wireles MC8775 HSDPA card, driver 2.0.9.0, 1/11/2007. It has worked fine except in two instances: first when traveling from the US to Switzerland, upon arrival it "failed to initialize" the device as I tried to run the dialer. This was true despite cold restarts. About a day later it started working, and working consistently, in Switzerland. Upon return to the US exactly the same phenomenon: unable to initialize for about a day. Then, working fine.Lenovo is ready to replace the card, but does anyone know if this is a software or other glitch for which I shouldn't trouble them? Something having to do with switching countries?  (And do I appear to be running the latest firmware/drivers? Firmware is H1_1_9_3MCAP.) Thanks,JZ

Answer:Sierra Wireless AT&T WWAN issue

To follow up for any that come later: the card was replaced, but experienced the same phenomenon in going to the Netherlands and back again to the US.  This time I downloaded and ran the "Sierra Wireless Watcher."  After the wireless radio was turned on it sat at "searching..." for about five minutes, then found the new band.  Once found it sticks, so the regular Lenovo dialer can then be used.  So it's not a hardware problem, and there's a solution.  ...JZ

I've installed Sierra MC8355 drivers on Windows 10 64-bit. Drivers installed successfully, Network connections show new 'Cellular' connection, Device manager shows new Sierra 8355 devices which have drivers installed. So it looks like everything is ok with drivers (Windows 8.1 drivers) on Windows 10. My question is - what should I install to be able to use that 3G and GPS? How can I perform a 3G connection and run GPS tracking? I tried software for Windows 7 - it failed. 

Answer:Sierra Wireless MC8355 on Windows 10

Hi and welcome, OxeliPlease, clarify: aren't you able to establish 3g connection using win10 mobile broadband features? What are the symptoms?To enable GPS capabilities, reinstall the drivers with option GPS=1 in the setup command line (note, use the setup installer, not the drivers package). Or, if there is configuration file in the folder where drivers are being extracted, change appropriate settings within it.

That is usually done via the Connection Manger software supplied by an ISP.  I have no idea what is supplied with a 7667-CTO, but the Sierra Wireless generic Connection Manager (on the Sierra web site) might work.

Hi everyone, this is my first post here. I've trawled the net for ages but have found nothing. I believe I have a unique situation here and would love some help from some net savvy people. I have strong computing skills, but keep away from networks if possible. Hope someone here can help, would really appreciate it.

Here's my current setup:
- HP Pavillion Laptop with Windows 7
- Receiving internet from a USB connected wireless modem (Huawei model E160E)
It all works well, internet is fine, I'm happy.

Why I want to share this network connection:
I have a couple of iphones and a Nintendo Wii and we would like to connect them to the the laptops internet connection.

Other things I've tried first:
I DO understand "Connectify" is out there and have tried it but it just fails every time I've tried it, the devices that try to connect all just sit there trying to connect and time out.

My possible solution found:
So what I found deep in my cupboards is a Belkin N Wireless Modem Router (Model F5D8633-4). It's a relic from my days of having an ADSL connection. This was back in the days when I used to have a physical phone line. Ahh they were the days, a physical connection to my house. Imagine that!

Answer:Unique Q: USB Huawei Wireless Modem to feed house via Belkin Wireless N Modem Router

You enable Internet Connection Sharing on the internet connection and configure the Belkin as follows.

JohnWill's procedure (Aug. 30, 2008) for configuring a secondary router as a switch and, optionally, wireless access point follows.

Connecting two (or more) SOHO broadband routers together.

Note: The "primary" router can be an actual router, a software gateway like Microsoft Internet Connection Sharing, or a server connection that has the capability to supply more than one IP address using DHCP server capability. No changes are made to the primary "router" configuration.

Configure the IP address of the secondary router(s) to be in the same subnet as the primary router, but out of the range of the DHCP server in the primary router. For instance DHCP server addresses 192.168.0.2 through 192.168.0.100, I'd assign the secondary router 192.168.0.254 as it's IP address, 192.168.0.253 for another router, etc.

Note: Do this first, as you will have to reboot the computer to connect to the router again for the remaining changes.

Disable the DHCP server in the secondary router.

Setup the wireless section just the way you would if it was the primary router, channels, encryption, etc.

Connect from the primary router's LAN port to one of the LAN ports on the secondary router. If there is no uplink port and neither of the routers have auto-sensing ports, use a cross-over cable. [You will not need a cross-over cable if one of the "routers... Read more

Do your SIM card or contract with cellilar operator have LTE only service restrictions? In your country this modem will work in 3G networks only, depending on the cellular operator.

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

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).

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?.

I have an X1 Yoga 20FQ with Windows 10 Enterprise 64-bit and a Sierra Wireless EM7455 WAN card that came with the unit from Lenovo and an AT&T micro SIM card (also in the unit when it came from Lenovo). I also have the latest Lenovo software for the Sierra Wireless card (v. 7.47.4743.0105) from the Lenovo web site. The WAN card will connect to HPSA on AT&T (using the "default APN" and "broadband" in the Win 10 settings) but it will not connect to AT&T LTE. The AT&T web site at https://www.att.com/esupport/article.html#!/wireless/KM1218316 says to use NXTGENPHONE as the APN, but when I input that as the APN the card does not see it at all. I know that NXTGENPHONE is the LTE APN because that is the APN that my cell phone uses for its LTE data connection. AT&T tech support told me I the Windows 10 and NXTGENPHONE APN settings are correct and the AT&T diagnostics show I an LTE connection is available to me.I realize that there can be sources for this problem (Win 10 or AT&T) but I thought I would ask here to see whether anyone has experienced the problem or has a solution.Thanks.

I have a W520 and am looking to purchase a WWAN card.  I see that Sierra Wireless has the MC7750 card available (supports LTE, EV-DO and HSPA+).   Will the W520 support LTE, or am I just wasting my money getting a WWAN card with LTE support?

Answer:ThinkPad W520 and Sierra Wireless MC7750

The short answer: get the MC7750!Probably the biggest improvement isn't the raw download/upload speed of the unit, but rather the reduced network latencies. All the advertisements are only talking about the improvements in MBps, probably because it's the easiest thing to describe to people in 30 seconds or on a billboard. In reality MBps only matters if you are watching video, or downloading large files. Most of the delay time for other applications comes from the several hundred milliseconds it takes the computers to make a round trip communication. Each time you click something on the web, there are several rounds of communication which can add up. If your current connection has a 400ms delay (as mine does) it takes several seconds each time for anything to happen. Some better connections like HSPA are supposed to have about 100ms latency, but LTE is going to push that down to about 40ms.  Can you tell that I'm excited about getting LTE  I'm planning on getting the MC7750 as soon as Lenovo releases it. Unfortunately, every time I call in, I seem to be told that it's just a month or so away. I've been hearing that line for almost 4 months now. I was also told that I will be able to upgrade my existng x220, which had better be true otherwise I'm going to be royally pissed because I bought the system with that understanding.You may find my thread on the MC7750 for the x220 device interesting.http://forum.lenovo.com/t5/X-Series-ThinkPad-Laptops/Does-quot-Bro...
