Windows 7: Drivers for Sierra wwan card?

Drivers for Sierra wwan card?

I tried Windows 7 RC on my Lenovo T61p. I could not get my Sierra Wireless Broadband card working. It did not seem to have a driver that worked with Windows 7.

Has anyone been able to get that working? Does anyone else have this card and also have problems?

Sharing the same problem...

I'm experiencing the same problem...
It seems that the PCI to USB Hub drivers of the IBM hardware is not compatible with Windows 7 system. I think the solution is replacing the card or wait to October 22nd hopefully it will be resolved with the offical version.
If you found any other solution I'd love to hear,

Linux is my solution, so far


The solution I have used so far is to install Ubuntu 9.04. This has good drivers and is fast and stable. Of course the applications are lacking, compared with Windows. I too hope Lenovo and the relevant vendors will come out with working drivers by October 22.

I have had problems with the NVidia drivers too. Nvidia has updates but Lenovo has not bothered to support or distribute them.
