The installation program is not completing the install with the necessary drivers.

The fix: you must extract all the files from Sprint's .MSI installation file. I downloaded a free utility called Lessmsierables-20050611.zip by searching for an MSI extractor. It will allow you to right click the MSI file and extract all of the files to a folder.

After extracting all of the files, I inserted my Aircard 580 and the Data Interface box came up again. Point the driver installation to the folder you extracted and presto, it will install both of the Data Interface drivers (which are Aircard 580 drivers)

Cannot get an HP G60 120US running Win Vista SP2 to recognize wireless internet connection. Wireless button will not turn blue (on), even after a two-minute power down reset with the battery removed...


I've had similar problems with wireless cards refusing to turn their light blue until the driver was updated via windows update. Obviously I had to do this using a wired connection. Try connectiing with a wired connection and udating until windows update tell you everything is up to date then restart your laptop and wait for about 5 minutes before you press the on/off button on your wireless. You can also try removing the wireless card (physically I mean) rebooting, shutting down and replacing the card then rebooting again. If you know anybody that has the same kind of laptop ask if you can try their wireless card to see if it's a fault with that. Sorry I can't help more.

HP 550 will not get to the log in stage


This is a known issue with Vista. Microsoft has not documented a solution but SP2 for Vista addresses this issue.

You can try running chkdisk from the repair console (insert Vista installation DVD and select repair).

If you have backup CDs or DVDs, try to restore your system.
I nothing helps, you will have to manually back-up your data and reinstall Windows.

To back-up your data you might want to remove the hard disk and connectit to another working PC as a secondary hard disk. Then simply boot up,copy your data and plug the hard disk back in.

You can download theVista SP2 from here. Also download and install SP1 before installing SP2.

Thank you.

I cant get my wireless to work.


What service packs are installed,
if OS is XP then update to SP2,
any devices present will automatically be updated when you do a windows update,
update then reboot and try again.
Uninstall/reinstall both devices,
You can do the updates from your device manager just select the device right click and update.

This should fix both issues,Wireless and Sound.

Hooking Sprint aircard to Wireless Boroadband Router


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.


Hope this helps!

Staying connected to internet, using sprint 595 air card


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.

Vista downgrade to xp


no there aren't any drivers, but the problem you will have is that the bios is updated to suit Vista and installing XP will cause problems with components in the notebook.

My advice is to keep Vista if you havent already uninstalled the operating system, but you will notice that your hard disk has two partitions, install XP on the other partition and have a dual boot notebook, if you have uninstalled then lend a friends copy of Vista and use your own instalation product key code on the underside of your notebook and re install.
