    My solution ended up being , starting windows on my MacBook pro lap top while plugging the external modem and try to connect, then it prompts you to install a driver, I put the laptop to sleep and found a wireless connection , and as I woke the computer it installed the driver.

The phone connection would need to go through the blue tooth regardless of if you're using the phone connection or not. Check to see that you have bluetooth turned on and setup first. Then you'll need to use that to create the settings for using the phone as a modem. However, if you are using Windows on your Mac, you will need to make sure that your computer has the drivers installed to be able to both connect to the Internet and to connect to your phone. Once that is set up, you still need to go through the steps to use bluetooth to connect your phone to your computer, establishing a connection. There are quite a few articles about creating connections through your phone as a modem. http://mobileoffice.about.com/od/typesofaccessavailable/ht/bluetoothphone.htm

Cannot connect to internet, safari unresponsive, wireless good, airport on. macbook pro


You need to check whether ISP is working ok. To do this, connect your Mac Pro direct to your ADSL modem and see whether you can connect. If so, your Wireless may be too congested. Try to use a free WiFi scanner to check others who are on your channel. If you cannot find a clear channel to use, you may need to use another freq band AP, normally they are 2.4G WiFi, you can now use the 5.4G WiFi. You Mac Pro should support this band.

Can your drive read DVD's and play them too? It could be that your Drive is malfunctioning, your only solution may be to get it replaced. A quick fix is to buy an external USB DVD Drive.

Download tata indicom 1*usb modem installer for macbook pro


TATA Indicom's installation was pretty easy as they provide the modem
drives for mac. But the guys from Indicom may try hard to convince you
that Plug2Surf does not work and mac and you need their dialer to
connect to the internet.

1. Download the Mac Drivers for Qualcomm CDMA MSM modem.
2. The zip file you downloaded has to be unzipped. You'll see two
files inside, one for the Newer Intel x86 Macs and other one for the
Older PowerPC Macs. Open the appropriate installation (.pkg) file.
(Note : Unplug the device before opening the file.)
3. Click Continue.
4. In the next window, "Continue" after the reading the license and
then click "Install" .
6. Now open System Preferences > Network. You'll see "Qualcomm CDMA
Technologies MSM" on the left side bar (or it pops up a window, that
it has found it). Click on it.
7. Type Telephone No #777 , Account Name and Password both internet.
8. Click on "Advanced" > Select Vendor : Generic and Modem : Dialup
Device. Click "OK"
9. Your Done! The "Connect" button should be clickable now and will
connect to the Indicom service once clicked.

MACBOOK PRO DAMAGED USB PORT


Hardware. Had a bad spill with a drop? Very unlikely you can have it fixed cheaply, but go to your local mac store and see if you can get it fixed.
