Since you don't list your operating system, its hard to take you through all the arcane steps that don't always solve this problem that has caused many people alot of grief. So, here's something you can try if your laptop is no longer under warranty. These were badly made modems that get loose in their plugin spot on the motherboard. You can remove the cover on the bottom of the laptop where the modem is located and fold a small peice of paper ubntil it's the right thickness so that when you set it on top of the modem and screw the cover back down, the cover pushes down on the paper and thus the moden causing a tight plug in fit.

If you don't understand what I'm asking you to do, don't try it yourself but find a friend who's familiar with opening up laptops to do it with you.

It may sound nuts but it works a fair bit of the time. If it doesn't work, you'll either have to do some fairly advanced software adjustments or buy a new modem. This error code number you're getting often means the modem is bad.

Error 633 while using mobile internet on laptop


Error 633 is generated when the modem (or the phone you are trying to connect) is in use by other system. Check if the phone is already connected to other system or not. Or if there is any active session of internet going on in the mobile.

Hope this solves your problem.

I am using zte usb modem FFF1 for internet access via reliance netconnect.whenever I connect the device to laptop it is shown as storage device but as soon as i install the driver software a driver not...

The ZTE modem when initially connected to any system loads as a storage device which contains the software necessary to install the modem. Connect the ZTE and open it in Explorer. Double click the setup file (.exe) to start installation. Follow instructions and allow installation to complete. The modem is automatically installed during this setup. Once completed restart and then your ZTE functions as a modem.

Try to install Avira Free antivirus and Malwarebytes antimalware. Update and scan. Or you can try to install hijackthis to view running processes in your system.
