Question about Sierra Wireless Aircard 860 PC Card (SIASIERRAWIRELESSAIRCARD860P)

1 Answer

No internet access with air card

This is for a friend...he lives in a rural area with no high-speed internet access. He bought a Sierra Aircard, hoping to get access, and install a Magic Jack. He says that after installing the aircard, he still has no internet access, and cannot install Magic Jack.

    The carrier is AT&T, and he is within their coverage range. I think he may have installed improperly. He says it shows that he is connected, but he can't access any search engines (MSN, Yahoo, etc.). And, Magic Jack won't install properly, although he does get a dial tone. I'll go over there, and will be back in touch after getting more info. Thank you for you help!

    The Sierra card requires the Connection Manager to be properly installed and working. Uninstall it and reinstall. Who is the Carrier? Did he verify that the signal is good in his area?

Before you go to your friend's, download the Watcher program from Sierra wireless onto a cd. And install it instead of the AT&T Connection MGR.

For random disconnects and difficulties signing on with ATT Communications Manager

download the watcher program @

How can i use my 881 sierra wireless aircard to get online with my ps3


Download and install Sprint's SmartView. Select the download for your computer's operating system. Follow the installation wizard's prompts to properly install SmartView. The aircard should be connected to the computer during installation.

Restart the computer. Leave the aircard connected during the restart.

Double-click on the Sprint SmartView icon on the desktop.

Wait for the program to initialize and recognize the aircard, then click "Connect." Sprint SmartView should activate the aircard automatically.

try connecting with a cat5 cable instead of using the wireless. It is possible your problem is your wireless connection and not your service provider. Make sure your ether net connection is not disabled.

Sierra Wireless AirCard 595U And PS3


I understand that you want to connect the PS3 using the Wireless card and NETGEAR card. Please note that the setup you have will not work for internet access. You can not configure the Air card to work with NETGEAR router. you need to have wih a broadband connection available for this router to connect to internet.

Once you have the router configured with Internet access then you may either connect the PS3 wired or wireless to the router, like you connect a desktop or laptop to the router.

Sierra aircard 875u connect to Playstation 3


ok guys ive found the solution. i have a sprint usb aircard and had the same problem for like 6 months and just yesterday i found out how to make it work.

1) connect laptop/ CPU to internet as usual*
2)go to control panel
3) go to network and internet connections
4)go to network connections
5) next tight click on you internet provider thing. and go to properties.
6) click on advanced tab
7) then just follow the instruction to make it a shared connection and thats all to it.

fyi: its probably going to lag alot if your not in a good reception area. other than that the lag is bearable.

ps: if you need more help, or if you just want to say thank you email me at : Carlosl70n@yahoo.com
