I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

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...

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

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.

Just my 2cents, but have you tried putting the SIM in a regular handphone/cell phone?  Sometimes, some carriers may require you to "activate" the SIM.  You may also need to put in APN, etc information in the "Advanced Options".

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).

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? (windows 8.1 update)Sierra driver bug?or maybe vodaphone trouble? btw, I also tried a "native" vodaphone ES sim (no need for APN settings)Worked perfectectly ! Any suggestions?

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?

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:      ...

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.

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".

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.

Current Lenovo firmware for the EM7455 is 02.20.03.22, however Sierra Wireless has a newer version, 2.24.05.06 listed here: https://source.sierrawireless.com/resources/airprime/minicard/74xx/airprime-em_mc74xx-approved-fw-pa... After flashing with the newer version and rebooting, the card reverts back to 2.20.03.22. Has anyone else experience this? Is this something the carrier would dictate and enforce? Any help would be appreciated. Reason for upgrading is, when traveling internationally the unit has spotty connectivity and not very reliable. Hoping firmware upgrade would be a step in the right direction to resolving it.

Answer:ThinkPad W540 Work with Sierra EM7345?

Since it is listed in the official parts-list for the W540: Yes. However, you will need a Lenovo branded card (04X6014, which is the Sierra Wireless EM7345 LTE/HSPA+ 42Mbps M.2 Card).

Hello! I have a T450s with a Sierra EM7345. After a vanilla installation of Windows 10 and Update 1607 I don't get a stable connection with 3G/HDSPA/LTE to O2 with this card. I have used the latest drivers 2.25.10910 and software 2.21.10890. The card shows firmware FIH7160_V1.2_WW_01.1528.04. Energy-Option is set to maximum performance. The connection to O2 is established very quickly, but I have a plenty of time-outs over this card.Does anybody have the same problem or has a solution? Thanks Axel

I need some help here.I've narrowed down the problem I've been having with my x220t+gobi 3000.Apparently when I first installed it, the driver's set the firmware to Verizon, and I could see Verizon's network on windows 8 just fine. However, I have to use tmobile because it's 3x cheaper.Right now, I have the driver's installed and the card doesn't even seem to work, so I'm wondering what I need to do to get it to work. I'm out of options. I tried reinstalling the driver/firmware, but it doesn't seem to do anything.EDIT (9/11/15 617pm): I just powered on my laptop and magically it seems to be working. All I think I need to do now is activate this thing.

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. Anecdotally, it seems to work for others when using Windows 7 (although that wouldn't be a fantastic solution in my situation.)Is there any solution for this?Thank you in advance for your time and any responses!Jack

Answer:Lenovo Thinkpad T450s, Sierra EM7345 and Windows 1...

Hello, jraynerwin10 doesn't need wwan card's manufacturer drivers for the normal mobile connection, it has a native support that. Additional drivers are needed for the legacy location features via NMEA port, for the custom wwan card virtual devices configuration (like NDIS port etc).So, the 1st thought modem firmware is outdated. Check it out:open command prompt window (cmd) and type in the following stringnetsh mbn sh cap int=*Copy and past an output here (remove Device ID for your privacy).Another version is connection settings, APN mainly. Do you see a cellular network item in the win10 network settings?Anyway, I hope mobile device em7345 is present in the Device Manager w/out errors.

Hi aschulte,
 
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.

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.

I have a T440 with Sierra LTE. It works just fine for connecting to mobile networks.But here in New Zealand, one of our providers also provides free wifi hotspots to customers on certain plans. In order to use this though, I have to enter a password that is sent to me by SMS.Is there any way that I can view SMS messages sent to the SIM card that is inside my laptop?At the moment, I have to remove the SIM from my ThinkPad (with all the hassle that involves), stick it into my phone, get the password, then transfer the SIM card back into my ThinkPad (and often as not, there is no power socket nearby, so I can't restart because I had to disable the internal battery when removing/replacing the SIM card).So, if someone can point to a way that I can simply view those SMS messages on my ThinkPad, I will be enernally grateful.

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.

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?

After installing the MS Firmware Update that popped up out of nowhere yesterday, with little or no documentation, I couldn't help but notice that my Marvell AVASTAR Wireless AC adapter quit working. My driver update utilities didn't notice anything amiss but by using a manual driver load (Update Driver Software, Browse my computer for driver software, Let me pick from a list..., then trying the drivers that showed up in that list in their order of appearance), I was eventually able to load a driver that worked -- for me it was the third one in the list that did the trick. Should anyone else find themselves in this situation, I can claim that this approach has worked at least once to restore the wireless interface to working condition.

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.

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.

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

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

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,I reinstalled a fresh copy of Windows 7 Premium Edition on a HP Pavilion DV6 laptop after changing the failed harddrive. My first attempt at both. After installing all the drivers I could find from the HP website, I was up and running, but realized Windows Update would search endlessly. I tried all the boards, suggestions, and driver downloads I read about, but nothing is working. Windows Update Standalone Installer cycles endlessly as well. Almost everything I download to fix this issues requires Windows Standalone Installer for installation. Coincidentally, Windows Defender won't update either.  Can anyone help this newbie? I appreciate all your help.Thanks, NYJ

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.

Hello, I am having issues with the EM7355 network card for Verizon Wireless. I have a sim card installed in my computer linked to an active service plan. Unfortunately I am having troubles getting this to work. My windows 10 pro connection manager says Cellular: No Service. I havent setup any API yet under the windows tool. Also, I noticed that the Lenovo activation software doesnt work as it cannot find a card. Windows does see the card and when I look at the details, it seems to be able to read the sim card as it popuates the phone number from the line.  Any help would be appreciated. Regards Richard

All, I'd really like to be able to purchase a wireless cellular card for my X220T that is capable of connecting with Verizon 4G LTE at 4G LTE speeds.   This is particular of interest since Verizon is strongly looking into Family Data Share Plans where testing is to begin either 2nd Quarter or 3rd Quarter this year. http://www.electronista.com/articles/12/02/28/verizon.to.bring.out.shared.data.plans.in.summer/ I contacted Sierra Wireless  about their AirPrime cards and they say that Lenovo has to flash the cards with some stuff before they can actually work on the Lenovo laptops.   So, I'd really like to be able to have one of the 4G AirPrime cards ready when Family Data Plans are made available.  I can turn my phone into a wireless hotspot.  However, that drains the battery really really fast (about 1% a minute).  The integrated solution is therefore the more ideal solution even when considering a card vs a usb stick.  I'm guessing the card would draw less power.  Plus you don't have to worry about carrying around a usb stick you may lose. This card should be tested to work with both Windows 7 and Windows 8.  And there should be a way to toggle power to the card on/off just like with bluetooth and wifi.  This list of AirPrime cards Sierra Wireless makes are here: http://www.sierrawireless.com/productsandservices/AirPrime/Wireless_Modules/High-speed.aspx I think the one that is neede...

I'm also wondering whether there will be Lenovo support for MC7710 (LTE in Europe) in X220 http://forums.lenovo.com/t5/X-Series-ThinkPad-Laptops/X220-support-for-Sierra-Wireless-MC7710-WWAN/t...   Yes, I could have waited for X230 but because of the ruined keyboard layout I had to buy X220. I'm sure it is technically possible but I fear Lenovo will not be willing to suport LTE cards in older models.

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.

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.

Will Lenovo add official support for Sierra Wireless MC7710 http://www.sierrawireless.com/productsandservices/AirPrime/Wireless_Modules/High-speed/MC7710.aspx please ? It is LTE/HSPA+ WWAN "Gobi 4000" module for Europe region. By support I mean to whitelist the device in BIOS at least, assuming the WWAN card will be Lenovo branded one for X230 model. Please consider that many of us could wait for X230 with official 4G WWAN support but the keyboard layout change was unacceptable so we bought X220 instead. Because Lenovo don't want to introduce ThinkPad classic keyboard as X230 option they could allow X220 owners to use up-to-date WWAN cards instead.

Answer:X220 support for 4G/LTE Sierra Wireless MC7710 WWA...

There is a little bit problem for implementing full featured LTE support in x220 - mc7710 needs 3 antennas. Perhaps one of them is for GPS only, I don't have clear information. MC7700/7750 support restricted number of bands for US market so may be they don't need 3rd antenna in x230. We'll see some answers when x230' parts list will be published and compare antennas FRU.But your request is very important for me too.

Yesterday I updated KB905866 along with a group of Microsoft Office updates and upon restart, my Sierra Wireless Air Card program crashes. I get a vague "Watcher has stopped working" Windows says that it is collecting information, but can't because there is no internet connection. So far I have:

Uninstalled and reinstalled the air card application
Uninstalled KB905866

I am running an sfc/scannow, although I am not sure how the information will assist me in fixing the problem. Here is the thread from another KB browser issue, dated in 2009:

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.
