Question about Apple PowerBook G4 Mac Notebook
Hi, I use an PowerBook G4 with OSX 10.4.11 and a Huawei USB 3G Modem. From time to time, the Modem disconnects from the 3G network, however my online elapsed time indicator (the one on the top menu bar) keeps running. I don't get any warnings of disonnections and this is a recent problem. I periodically use the modem in a Windows Vista Notebook too but without these problems.
If the modem came with drivers, i suggest you reinstall them. If this doesn't work, try to remove the sim-card then put it back in.

First of all, is the Vista computer located at the SAME location as the G4? A USB modem (which I have on one of out LAN machines) will have a much smaller antenna than a "normal size" unit, say a DLINK or LinkSYS unit. This makes the location of the receiver much more critical. Since you are using it in a laptop, may I suggest that you take it to the same location as the Vista machine and try it there? As you probably know, when dealing with cm wavelengths, moving an antenna a few centimetres can make all the difference. Try that first to try to isolate the problem. (IE: if it still fails at the PC location, then it's most likely a software issue on the G4.. just a guess though..)
Vista (..who says you can't polish a turd....)
