Re: 3G modem for Lenovo W520

Sergey, you need Ericsson F5521gw card. I use it on my T420 and it works great with MTS (for others: MTS is another Russian cell operator).

Look for P/N 0A36186 - some Russian retailers got it on stock.

Re: 3G modem for Lenovo W520

Thank you for advice.

But are you sure that it is compatible with Lenovo W520? I can't find part no of this FRU in service manual for W520.

Yes, i'm sure Smiley Happy

Service Manual contains only FRU P/N's. 0A36186 is retail P/N. You can find it in Option Comtability Matrix here: http://support.lenovo.com/en_US/detail.page?LegacyDocID=ACCS-GUIDE

Re: 3G modem for Lenovo W520

Cool!

Thank you!

Can you share way how OS connects with 3G netwrok? Is it use Win7 standart networking components? Or I should install some Lenovo software for that? Can you share more info about communication process?

Also, if it possible, I would like to see screenshots of this process.

Thank you!

Re: 3G modem for Lenovo W520

I'm using Lenovo Access Connections to manage all my network connections (LAN, WiFi, WiMAX, WAN). This is really useful utility. It connects atomatically to known networks by priority. And if there is no other networks - it connects to WAN. And you can always connect the selected profile manually.

But i think you can use Win7 standart components if you don't like Access Connections.

Re: 3G modem for Lenovo W520

Hello again.

Today I've received my Ericsson modem. But I'm confused because after its installation in slot my laptop doesn't start. The symptoms is one short beep, pause, three short beeps, pause, three more short beeps, and one short beep. I've upgraded my UEFI BIOS version and have no results.

Can you help me with modem installation? May be I should do some specific actions?
