Windows 7: 3G Usb broadband connection

02 Jul 2010   #11

Win7 HP (x64)/Win7 Ultimate (x64)

It appears that you are working off a USB-stick (dongle? ) for your connection.
In relation to the virtual adapter - you can have a look at this thread and more info can be found here.


Just re-read your post - is that only one USB stick that you share between your PC's?
Which of the two PC's is your primary?

KF, welcome to Windows 7 Support forums,
The router you use is an old Linksys, your issue suggests that the modem needs to be reset/power down and power up.

I have the exact same model you have so depending on the settings I suggest you review your firmware versio. Are you familiar with how to access your router via your web browser? If not I'll walk you through it.
  1. Completely power off the pc, cable modem and your router.
  2. Power up in the following method. A) Modem, B) Router and C) your computer that the modem is attached to. The reason for this method is for the modem to establish an address with your ISP and for the router to establish the link
  3. Next open up your web browser and in the address bar (See attached screen shot) type the following: http:\\
  4. You will see a user name and password dialog appear, now if you have never set your router a password it accepts the following defaults.

Password: admin
  • You should now have accessed your router, you will see several options and based on your abilities you have the options to change settings. But if you have the ability proceed to the right of your screen you will see the tab "SETTINGS" if you click on it you will see a new screen that allows you to refresh your DHCP settings, what this means is you can release your DHCP settings on your dynamic address and then reset the router to re-connect with a new dynamic address. Now with summer here and the prevalence of storms and mini power failures routers that are not connected to APC get bumped and have to be manually reset.
