WAN in windows set to HSPDA ONLY !!?

Im wondering how I configure WAN in windows 7 to use HSPDA/HSPA ONLY ??

The reason is to avoid using Lenovo's software, since I have to start it manually on every OS startup.

Hope someone can help :-D

Hi, i would've thought this is a hardware driven property rather than an OS. You would have configured the types of network access with devices such as USB modem. How you configured the access, could be through a software that comes with the modem.

It is not USB Modem..
Its a Lenovo Laptop with integrated WAN, the SIM card is placed inside the laptop, not in an external device.
The integrated device is an Ericsson F3507g Broadband minicard device.

I have installed the driver F3507g Mobile Broadband driver and it works fine.

I am using software from Lenovo (Lenovo's Internet Connection) to make sure I'm only connected to HSPDA/HSPA. In this software I can choose connection methods and more.

I want to use the WINDOWS 7 tool ONLY.. but I dont know how to configure it to ONLY use HSPDA/HSPA.

Hope someone can help

I used the UBS modem as an example, eg Huweii USB modem.
Like i said, this is a a feature of the adapter, and the software that comes with it will be where you want to configure. I know this Ericsson F3507g Broadband minicard device you are talking about (lets just say i have certified your Lenovo machine machine for our client). The default utility on windows does not to my knowledge allow for switching or configuring between 802.11 and HSPDA (SIM type network), if you want use HSPDA only, you will need to not use Windows uility, rather the software that comes with the HSPDA type wireless adapter.
If you have an iphone, you would know that it can either be configured to use 3G or wifi, very much a function of the device, not OS.

Hmm.. Thanks for your answer.

I guess im stuck with activating my internet manually on every OS startup then

Just thought the OS had that property in the software/driver, but seems only Lenovo software can do it then.

Thanks again

You can't use the Ericsson F3507g Broadband minicard device's utility?

With Windows, you can either let windows configure your wifi through the builtin utility OR you can tell it to use a third party software. It's either one or the other.

Cases where you have an integrated builtin or an external USB device, perhaps more so for the latter, Windows's 802.11 and that device's wifi can stand alone. Eg, if i have a USB modem attached to my T60, i can launch the USB's program and connect to the internet. At the same timei can use my W7's builtin utility to connect to my wireless router's network.

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 ?

frank77, if I understand you correctly... you only want to use the Ericsson F3507g Broadband minicard ONLY?

If so, go to Network and sharing center, go to "Change adapter settings", disable all other adapters you see there except the Ericsson F3507g Broadband minicard. That way your internet connection will use Ericsson F3507g Broadband minicard ONLY.

If what you mean is to force the Ericsson F3507g Broadband minicard to only use HSDPA/HSPA and not GPRS or EDGE, then you can't do anything about it... HSDPA/HSPA/GPRS/EGDE are managed by the hardware, if it lost HSPA/HSDPA signal, it will fallback to EDGE/GPRS signal automatically, unless you hack the firmware...

Doesn't matter if he wants to use the mini card or the wifi on the motherboard. He can use both, as both are independent of one another (one is a PCIe/USB connection and the other is onboard, you know what i mean if the terminology is not right). The mini card is no different to a USB modem, in that it uses a SIM for connection to the internet which goes through different protocols. The tool that comes with the mini card is the only way that will allow him to access the net with EDGE. Windows utility will let him access the net using 802.11/wifi only.

I can only think of smartphones, eg iphone that will allow you to switch between EDGE and Wifi at will. No computer that i know does this.

aem, After re-reading the question... I think confused... Which one does he want? Just use the mini card ONLY? Or make the minicard to connect only to HSPA? Hmm... zzz2496
