Staying connected to internet, using sprint 595 air card

Utilizing sprint sierra 595 air card for internet access, I continue to be disconnected at critical times. card works fine in 2 other laptops which we've tried. downloading was done properly with sprint tech assistance. card takes forever to activate in this computer [vista] and does not stay connected. Is there something in this toshiba [running vista]I can adjust or change which will correct this problem? Is it possible that Toshiba's connection options might be interfering with my downloaded sprint connection manager? {Sprints's idea]
I have tried 4 different air cards, all work fine short term, then start disconnecting. Thank you, tjs

If I were you, I would let your windows manage your wireless network on the computer with vista. Also you might, If you haven't already tried using your install new programs in the control panel, As long as you have the sprint software downloaded in your laptop windows should still recognize the wireless connection, Try letting windows manage it from the Network properties and there should be an option there that lets windows manage you network. try it see if that helps you out. If not write back here and let me know we can try another route. Sorry you having problems.

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.

Open a browser window to access the Internet.

What router can i use for my sprint air card 595


That particular model air card does not appear to have wifi connectivity. It appears to only communicate with the cell towers directly and not with any wifi routers A/B/G/N. I could be wrong but I do not see anything in their promotional material about it.

Sprint Aircard 595/use with other laptop


No, this would be seen by the provider, Sprint and would be a lot of overhead to track each computer connected. It is too costly and Sprint may not provide the info, mostly just connected times. From what I remember, they are like a modem that dials a number. I am in IT (remote connectivity and security) and I have used Sprint and Verizon cards with many laptops myself. :) hope this helps.

Usually when you have a network connection but cannot access the internet there is an IP issue. Here are some things to try:
  • If you haven't already done so, restart your computer
  • In Network connections - delete the Sprint connection under Dial Up Connections & restart pc
  • Right click on Local Area Connection and click properties - click TCP/IP and click properties - make sure Obtain an IP Address Automatically is selected
  • If your cable modem came with an installation CD - try reinstalling
Hopefully one of these will get you back on the Internet.

No internet access with air card


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 @
