I have spent hours on the phone with "verizonwireless" technical support trying to troubleshoot a problem where my aircard does not work with my computer to gain internet access. At first I was getting a username and password invalid error message they reset "dmu" keys and that was resolved. Now I am getting a the remote computer did not respond error message we even setup a manual connection using #777 and verified there are no driver conflicts in device manager and that drivers are functioning properly. Does anyone know what the possible cause for an error message 720 the remote computer is not responding is?

Go to www.verizonwireless.com and either create an account if you do not have one or sign in to an existing account. Once you have signed in all the information on your account is available on the site.
Download and install Sprint's SmartView. Select the download for your computer's operating system. Follow the installation wizard's prompts to properly install SmartView. The aircard should be connected to the computer during installation.
Restart the computer. Leave the aircard connected during the restart.
Double-click on the Sprint SmartView icon on the desktop.
Wait for the program to initialize and recognize the aircard, then click "Connect." Sprint SmartView should activate the aircard automatically.
the UM150 wireless card goes into the computer.
however, the DSL need to be wired to your computer for initial configuration.
if you just hook up the DSL as verizon say, then you will have a open wireless network, anybody can get access to your network.
After 3 days filled with hours on the phone with AT&T, the internet, and then 2 hours with Dell, the Dell people told me that my Dell computer is not compatible with the new 881 Aircard. I have to take it back and order a refurbished older model 875U off the internet. AT&T should have a list of imcompatible computers before they sell it to you and put you through days of frustration! My IBM ThinkPad from work won't work with it either. I am on my son's Compaq now, works fine with it. What a mess it was. I hope the refurbished one works! MK Smith
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!
This can be accomplished by using a network cable called a crossover cable (cat5 type). This cable is used to connect two computers together. With everything off just to be safe connect your computer to the PS 3 using the LAN ports on each. Start the computer and get online with the um150 then turn on the PS 3. In Windowsxp go to start, programs,accessories,communications, network setup wizard.Run the wizard. Click next twice and in the third window that pops up you should see Pantech usb modem which is the um150 and local area connection 1 for your computer. Mine is realtek Ethernet NIC yours may be different but look to see if you have an ethernet connection with NIC in the description. If the box says that a cable or cables are disconnected click the ignore disconnected radial button and click next. In this window choose the top radial button that says this computer connects directly to the internet. Continue through the wizard, you won't need printer sharing, and it should have automatically checked the correct connections to be bridged. What this does is bridge the um150 with your NIC through to the PS 3 by the cable. Click next and name your computer and network, you can leave the defaults if you want. Click next to set up the network. At the last window you don't want to set up any other computers so choose the radial button that says "just finish the wizard" should be the last one. The downside to this is that the um150 uses a different IP address every time you connect to the internet so you will have to go through this procedure each time you connect. Now go to the PS 3 and network settings and choose check for wired connection and it should connect.
