3network mobile dongle wont work


Hi,
Three options:
1). Try another USB port on the PC / Laptop. I have discovered that some USB ports mess up sometimes.
2). Check if you have a firewall software on this computer (some of those that normally pops up with messages at the bottom-right of your screen saying things like 'Allow, Block, etc". If you have one of such, you may want to go into the setting and disable firewall briefly and test your Dongle again. If it now works, then Allow the Dongle in the firewall settings.
3). Uninstall the Dongle. Shutdown and restart your computer. Go to Program files and delete the folder where the program was installed. Then use the CD that came with your Dongle to do an install. Then finally connect your Dongle. Should work.

Anyone know how to get ASUS Express Gate to go online with Sprint's mobile broadband connection? It works great whilst in Windows but will not connect whenI try to use the Express Gate...Really appreciate...


The problem is that Express Gate uses a cut down installation of Linux embedded on the motherboard to allow you to boot the computer in a very basic mode to access the internet to check email etc. Linux supports most network cards but it will not natively support your USB mobile broadband device. I managed to get my Vodafone aircard working in Linux, but you need to add drivers and kernel support for it and i'm pretty sure that won't be possible with the embedded cut down Linux that Express Gate uses.....

Will 3g dongle or tmobile dongle work on eee laptop


Yes it will. I would think, given the nature of the Eee, it should just plug & go, but I don't have one to confirm. I can confirm that they do work under Linux as I am using one now.
At worst, It might need a bit of fiddling about.

Virus


Do you have full functionality in safemode? If so, get your hands on an anti-virus and scan your system. You might also be able to use an online virus scan, but I'd avoid the internet if you know you have a virus.

If this won't work, you can try using a linux live CD to scan for viruses... although, I wouldn't recommend that unless you have Linux or Unix experience.

If none of these solutions work, most likely, you will end up taking it to a computer repair shop.
