Question about Sierra Wireless Aircard 860 PC Card (SIASIERRAWIRELESSAIRCARD860P)

Sierra wireless aircard

Recently bought a new Toshiba laptop that I thought had a slot for my aircard and it turns out it only fits the express card. Is there such a thing as an adapter that I can use to connect my sierra aircard (Cingular) to my new computer. I have 2 malfunctioning computers. I have extended service plans on them, but haven't had a chance to send them in. In a panic, I ran out and quickly bought this one for my business. And then realized that my aircard doesn't fit. I rely on my computer a lot for my work. I am having to use my daughter's still and she would like me to return it soon. Is there an adapter available and does Best Buy sell it?
Please help.

Yes , but on a laptop it will be an external usb adaptor.
You need something like this, the model in the middle will do.

    Sorry correction, Aircards can be pcmcia, or pc II, or pc III
    using same link as above
    buy the one in the middle for pc2 aircards, the one on the right for pcmcia aircards, just check your model specifications.

Call at&t, tell them you bought it from a third party. As long as it is new at&t (att in lower case) or Cingular, doesn't appear on an active account, have a pending contract attached or a past due amount on the account, you should be able to get it unlocked.

Going from USB to PC card


It may not be compatible with either software version or it's possible the version of "driver installer" is only compatible with the USB, If you'd go into device manager on your PC and make sure you see drivers for the modem,network adapter,ports and usbs for the 860 you should be able to set up a dial up connection. This will help you do that. https://www.wireless.att.com/support/tutorials.do?tutorialPage=page2&universe=att&deviceId=8330&tutorialsCategory=Connection+Methods You also may want to take a look at this article https://www.wireless.att.com/support/tutorials.do?tutorialPage=page2&universe=att&deviceId=8330&tutorialsCategory=Getting+Started&tutorialId=214910

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 @
