I think he wanted to use W7 builtin wireless tool to get onto EDGE.

Quote:
I CAN use the utility..

The problem is that I cannot / I dont know how to- configure to use HSPDA ONLY, WITHOUT using Lenovo's software.

Understand ?
When you launch the tool, and connect via it, what is shown in the Network and Sharing centre? the lenovo software meaning the W7 builtin utility?

On second thoughts, maybe this can help.

is this an option ? bah
 
 

Oh my god.. I dont know which to do... cry or laugh ?!

I try again..

I want to NOT use EDGE...
I want to use Windows 7 builtin tools to connect my SIM to HSPDA/HSPA AND MAKE SURE IT DOES NOT EVER.. i SAID EVER TURN INTO EDGE if it cant find hspda/hspa signals..

and got dammit its not about 902.11 !!!!!!

I give up... this forum is hopeless- I will get my hammer and smash my laptop right away..

OH MY GOD

If someone doesnt write how I fix my god damn problem, THIS Reply will be my LAST post in sevenforums.com


I try last time.. I explain now, ok ??? listen up... !!!!

yes... NOW !!!

I WANT TO MAKE SURE MY SIM CARD DEVICE WILL NOT CONNECT TO EDGE
THAT MEANS I WANT TO ONLY USE HSPDA/HSPA <----- ONLY THESE.. NOT EDGE

I WANT TO AVOID USING LENOVO SOFTWARE TO MAKE SURE OF THAT, SO I DOES NOT HAVE TO CONNECT MANUALLY ON EVERY PC STARTUP..

ok this just HAVE to be understandable..

MY GOD !"!!!

aem, I was right...

frank77, for all I know, every 3G modem out there will fall back to lower generation signals automatically, you can't control it in any way...

I have an iPhone, when it lost 3G signal, it MUST fallback to EDGE/GPRS, it's standard safety precaution. I have several other 3G modems, all of them will fallback to GPRS/EDGE/CDMA 2000 1x automatically, you can't control it unless you hack into the firmware and state to the hardware directly and say if it doesn't find ANY 3G signal (HSPA/HSDPA/UMTS), shutdown the radio... By then you'll lost all network connection...

Anyway, we're here to help you voluntarily... you should, in return reply nicely, we are people too... unless you don't expect any answers...

Well zzz, it seems only those with smartphones, and the king is the iphone knows what we meant.

I think i have already asnwered the OP's question. You cannot configure the Windows builtin utility the way you can on the thirdparty software. This means you cannot configure the Windows utility to use HSPDA. Windows uses wifi (until manufacturers of laptops decided to put in a built in SIM card slot, then this is when Microsoft might make the Windows utility configurable) . If he wants to use 3G/EDGE/HSPDA whatever the adapter was made to be used with, then he needs to look at the thirdparty software (that's why they supplied it - If Erricson thinks their devices can be used with Windows builtin utility, then why did they create the thirdparty software?).

How the software is configured to use this and that, I don't have it so how do i know? But even if I do have the software my machine doesnt have the ericcson card so no point.

All that said, if someone can override the above, with knowing how to configure the Windows builtin utility to use HSPDA, then i take my replies back.

Now I really wonder if that Ericsson card can really do that (only connect to HSPA/HSDPA)... that would rock... but when it lost signal, it would lost network connection, and that would suck... hmm...
Several modems I have/had never had such option (only use HSPA, never fallback to EDGE/GPRS). Oh well... it's still by far still way too geeky, way too hard compared to my iPhone tethering process... (which is: enable tethering in Settings, plug the iPhone to the computer, and it suddenly connected (!!!) ). iPhone is still the king of smartphones (although it does have many limitations, but still ). You don't even need to install ANY driver to tether iPhone !!!

Well, I guess he's not going to reply anymore, aem...

I think with the lost of connection, ie if you go out of EDGE range for example, the device reverting back to wifi or not, is something for the softrware to manage. I used to have the Huweii 160 USB modem (with SIM)and am able to configure it's software to use EDGE only or EDGE and wifi together. Where i am not in range of any wifi hotspots or ISP's tower, the connection just died.

Err, I googled your Huawei E160 USB, it doesn't have Wifi interface onboard... By the way, Wifi (802.11[a/b/g/n]) standard is completely different compared to cellular data (HSPA/HSDPA/HSUPA/UMTS), I don't see how both can be on [the same device] and online at the same time, load balancing both Wifi and 3G connections on a ~60 bucks USB stick device. Although that would be spectacularly amazing yet utterly useless...

I think you are missing something (I don't know what)...
Anyway, it's 6AM over here... I need to get some sleep...

Am i getting mixed up with my iphone and the E160? or was I? It's been a while but thanks for pointing that out. I think i got carry away with making the point that you can only use the utility from the ericcson device to manage EDGE connects (not Windows builtin utility). I now can't remember if i have also used the E160G's utility to manage the machine's wifi as well.
