    Very similar problem. Bought ACER laptop which worked flawlessly. Loaded ATT Communication Manager onto the ACER with VISTA. Re-booted laptop and computer ''froze". Was unable to move cursor, imput any data. Have contacted ATT with NO support or solutions at all. Very frustrating.

    Same problem with new Dell Inspiron 1720. Computer freezes after installing the AT&T software. Performing auto system restoration removes the software. Received no suggestions from Dell or AT&T tech support on how to fix!

    Had the exact same problem, with new Acer Aspire 6930, with Vista. Had to go into Safe Mode and then use the roll-back to last known good configuration. That cleared everything up. Tried installing several times, had same problem, same solution fixed computer. But no At&t software and no aircard at this point, on my Acer.

    I have the same problem with my Acer Aspire laptop. I have to go to safe mode to restore. I'm more than a little ticked that neither Acer or AT&T seem to care that my new laptop won't take this software,

Dear sir/madam,

The more you go in to alter settings and programs in your
DELL, them less likely they will be to honor the warranty. Having said that, one
thing you can try IF you have a restoration disk of any kind, is to try to repair
the boot files and sequence. you can use one of two methods. You may get a handy
utility called "VistaBootPro" that does the job very nicely or follow the link below
to MS and run their bootrec scheme. click this link for more information to how to boot to update
windows update.

Feature Manager Pop up & back up file has been loaded.


I received a pop-up that said, '' Corruption hads been found detected in Feature Manager, back-up file has been loaded. Sierra Wireless Aircard 881 Most of the time you can repair the feature file by opening and closing AT&T Communication Manager (ACM). If that doesn't work try this... 1. Close ACM. 2. On you computer browse to C:\Documents and Settings\All Users\Application Data\Communication Manager. 3. Delete the files called featuremanager.xml.rc4 and featuremanagerBackup.xml.RC4. 4. Open ACM. 5. If your still having the problem delete the entire Communication Manager directory in Application Data. 6. Uninstall and Reinstall ACM.
Try this and let me know if it helped you Thank you, Techlahj

I keep getting an error message when I start up my laptop. the 2 wire gives me a "corruption has been detected in feature manager, backup file has been loaded", and it will not connect. All other programs...


If the machine is a Dell with DellControlPoint, open start, run then type msconfig and hit enter. Choose the Startup tab and find the startup item named "Dell" with the Command from "C:\Program Files\Dell\Dell Control Point\Connection Manager\Dell.UCM.exe" and uncheck the box. Hit Ok, then reboot your computer.

Communication manager software license expired


Clearly, ATT would rather we get a new modem with their software, so they have more control over what we do with it.

However, I just discovered the following way to get connected:

In the Cingular Communication Manager
1. click Ok to the error message.
2. click Connections/Edit Connection Profiles.
3. highlight your EDGE/3G connection and click "Connect", and you will connect bypassing the error message (this must be a bug).
4. live with it.

NEW AIR CARD HAS SIGNAL BUT NOT CONNECTING TO NETWORK


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!

My wireless button is not working


Please try to check the specification of your laptop again, have you installed a separate wireless network card on your laptop.

Based from the specification on the HP manual, the communication feature for your laptop are:

Communications 10/100/1000 NIC High speed 56K modem with digital line guard NOTE: Designed only to allow faster downloads from high speed 56K modem compliant sources. Maximum achievable download transmission rates currently do not reach 56 KB/s, and will vary with line conditions. NOTE: Modem availability is subject to country regulatory approval.
