No 3G, only EDGE after Windows 8 upgrade

2012-11-06, 11:51 AM



the Windows 8 (64 bit) upgrade of my Thinkpad Edge 11 (0328-5EG) worked out almost fine, but now the build in Qualcomm Gobi 2000 (9205) card will only establish a slow EDGE connection and no 3G / HSPA anymore (in places, where reception is very good and my mobile phone shows constant 3G).


I am using the notebook mostly in the some place as before and it always had a speedy HSPA connection there. I am not using Lenovo software for the connection, only the Qualcomm drivers + Windows (same of before with Windows 7). I checked for possible provider issues but there seem to be none (it is a twin sim card to my mobile phone's card).


Strangely, after some time (rather hours than minutes) HSPA will work (usually after - but not immediately after - I connected through my mobile phone with internet sharing). Constantly connecting / disconnecting the device will not provoke a 3G connection.


TIA for any ideas on this. Regards,
