Lenovo Edge E120 - Cannot detect GOBI 2000 WAN Card

2011-09-28, 6:26 AM

 Hi I hope someone could assist.  I bought an E120 as my country does not see the X120e

 

I had purchased a GOBI 2000 WWAN Card from Lenovo re-seller.  The card passes through the whitelist just fine although it is not stated as one of the supported WWAN devices.

 

I tried installing the 7xwc48ww.exe (X120e and Edge 11 WAN drivers) to see if it would work.  The GOBI Loader installs, but the driver does not load, meaning - Under device manager - PORTS - Gobi loader

              - Under device manager - Network Adapters - No Gobi WAN Card :(

 

I also tried the solution from -http://curiouslynerdy.com/2009/05/qualcomm-gobi-wwan-card-on-windows-7/ but still no joy.

 

I believe the X120 and E120 are very similar, so I assume the Gobi WAN should be able to work. 

Can someone suggest another solution?

 

 

 

Thanks much!

 

Solved! See the solution

The Edge E120 is like the X121e, a GOBI 3000 or F5521gw will work. I tried a GOBI 2000 in my E120 with the same result as you.
