Question about Sierra Wireless Aircard 860 PC Card (SIASIERRAWIRELESSAIRCARD860P)
Our Sierra wireless 875u USB card is not connecting all the time because it apparently isn't getting a tight enough connection in the port. We tried an adapter and the same thing happens. It gets power but the data light doesn't always come on without some "fine tuning".
Anyway, we bought a used pc card- Sierra 860. I know it's old but we were mostly wanting it for a backup when our usb finally kicks the bucket. We thought it would be a simple insert the current SIM card from the usb, put it in the pc card and install. Didn't quite work that way...
We installed the drivers, watcher and firmware from Sierra and we still get nothing. The AT&T communication manager and Watcher both say "No wireless device detected" when trying the aircard. When we switch back to the usb, they both work fine.
What else could be the problem? Thanks!
It may not be compatible with either software version or it's possible the version of "driver installer" is only compatible with the USB, If you'd go into device manager on your PC and make sure you see drivers for the modem,network adapter,ports and usbs for the 860 you should be able to set up a dial up connection. This will help you do that. https://www.wireless.att.com/support/tutorials.do?tutorialPage=page2&universe=att&deviceId=8330&tutorialsCategory=Connection+Methods You also may want to take a look at this article https://www.wireless.att.com/support/tutorials.do?tutorialPage=page2&universe=att&deviceId=8330&tutorialsCategory=Getting+Started&tutorialId=214910
