I have Sierra USB modem and Sprint mobile broadband. It worked fine for a few days, but now my computer crashes when I try to connect. I get the ''blue screen of death'' and a page fault error.
It's happened with two different laptops, a Dell and an Acer. (Both running WinXP.) I think it's a power issue, because it only happens if the computers are running off battery. If they are plugged in, everything's fine.
I tried removing all other USB devices, unchecking ''Allow the computer to turn off this device to save power''under the Power Management settings for the USB Root Hub entries, and reinstalling the USB and Sierra drivers, butit didn't help.

you will not see your router in any of the places you looked.
Easiest method: Shutdown your PC and laptops. Unplug the power from the router and the cable modem. Wait 30 sec. then plug in the power to the cable modem, wait 30 sec. then plug the power to the router. Wait till you have "Internet" light then restart your PC and laptops. The PC and laptops should pick up an IP address and you should be able to get on-line. This is if you have a cable service provider.
dont boot from the usb disk open up ur os and go to my computer and install from their the reason you r having this problem is because when you boot from somthing its given the place of os or somthing like that
You could do this, it would be a bit of work! You would have to dedicate the computer with the sprint card to provide the internet connection to your router, which would then supply all the other computers with internet.
Assuming you have windows XP or Vista on the machine with the sprint card you would enable Internet Connection Sharing, which would provide an internet connection into whatever is plugged into the ethernet port, your router.
