Question about HP Compaq Presario V2000 Notebook
I HAVE A NEW AIR CARD. COMMUNICATION MANAGER WAS DOWNLOADED. WIRELESS ENABLED. BLUE LIGHT ON. COMMUNICATION MANAGER DISPLAYS THAT THERE IS SIGNAL BUT "CANNOT CONNECT TO THE NETWORK". THEN MESSAGE DISPLAYS THAT I AM "ATTEMPTING TO CONNECT AT A HIGH TRAFFIC TIME..." THIS IS NO MATTER WHAT TIME I ATTEMPT TO CONNECT. SERVICE PROVIDER SAYS NO ISSUE WITH NETWORK. SENT NEW AIR CARD. SAME ISSUE. SPENT SEVERAL HOURS ON PHONE WITH PROVIDER. BROUGH THE LAPTOP INTO STORE OF PROVIDER. 4MOS LATER - SAME ISSUE. HELP!
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!
