Re: how do I install and use a verizon ( vz720) aircard ,...
I am having trouble installing either an ATT or Sprint aircard on my Acer Aspire 6920 with Vista. The software loads correctly. However upon restart the computer just dies, no screen or logon. My solution has been to re-load operating system. The utilities menu has said something about driver incompatability. I need help, as I need a mobile internet connection.

Yes you can. Make sure that you disable DHCP in the lan settings section in the router. Use the computer without wireless card as the server, the router will be install in this computer. i have an air card with Sprint and I'm using Encore router and my Wii, and 3 more computer can connect without any problem.
Try uninstalling the smartview software to see if network connections and the print spooler are working with the aircard. If that doesn't work then remove the aircard and reinstall it. Test the connections and print spooler again. The procedure works to reset the components. Finally, if that works, then install the smartview software and retest the connections and spooler. Hopefully your system will repond favorably to the above procedure.
I thank you for giving a rating to this solution if it has been helpful.
Check your device manager an make sure the the drivers are loaded. if not reinstall drivers and reinstall the pc5750 aircard software utility BEFORE you install the card. This should solve the problem.
i have had three aircards due to many problems including not being able to install the communication manager program from the aircard to not being able to connect to the att network. well, i got a laptop the other day and figured i was going to have problems with the aircard UNTIL i went to the sierra wireless website and did some investigating!! i think the problems lie with the communication manager rather than the aircard itself. >>>download the 3GWatcher program directly from sierra wireless and use that instead of the communication manager. it offers all the same functions and worked right off the bat....i took my laptop with the aircard out on a golf course in the middle of nowhere to test and everything worked beautifully!! i, too, spent many hours on the phone with att....very frustrating! and no reps even suggested that i try the 3GWatcher program...they all blamed the problems on a "bad batch" of aircards.... hmmmmm!! try it, you'll like it!
