New T/SL-Series WWAN/UMTS MiniPCI-Express Configuration Howto

2008-09-10, 10:33 AM

Hey there,

does anyone know or have a HowTo to get the UMTS Adapter working? I tried several ways with the Vodafone Mobil Connect Software and/or the Access Connection but had no luck really.

 

I think its really buggy, sometimes the MC-Software tried to find the adapter, sometimes it stuck on looking for umts-network. Same show with the AC.

 

im really bored.

 

PS: also the Graphiccarddriver (switchable ati/intel) seems to have errors when the ericsson umts adapter is  plugged in. i couldnt switch anymore.

tassilo, welcome to the forum,

 

I have played with an SL500 Vista 32bit and had the same problem.

You need to go to C:\SWTOOLS\DRIVERS\WWANER and run the setup32 or setup64, depending on OS. Basically reinstall the WWAN drivers and it should then work.

 

Sorry, can't comment on the GPU question.

T400: Access Connections Errormessage after installing the Ericsson WWAN Driver

2008-09-11, 10:53 AM

New Day new try. And the UMTS Modul doesnt work yet.

 

I try to get the MiniPciE Ericsson Adapter working in my new T400 but have strange issues. 

After changing back to a Config before installing the driver i updated the access connections  to the latest version (with the new interface)

 

then i installed the  driver for the broadband card:

http://www-307.ibm.com/pc/support/site.wss/document.do?sitestyle=lenovo&lndocid=MIGR-70000

 

and now i have a errormessage every time i reboot the computer:

"ThinkVantage Access Connections Service GUI helper Module doesnt work anymore" (translated from german)

 

but the module & AC seems working anyways.

 

any suggestions?

Andy,

 

thats not the solution. Sure i installed the right driver but it seems it was a AC problem (older version)

 

but now there are new errors:

 

please see my new thread with the error description:

I moved your new thread here in order to keep continuity.

 

Which OS are you using? Was the UMTS card supplied with the TP or added later? If added later, please post the Option or FRU number.

 

Are you now saying that UMTS works, but AC is giving an error at boot?

sure andy:

I have a T400 NM3TDGE (2765-TDG) and did a clean Vista Business Installation like described here to avoid the switchabel GFX Error. Also i bought the Lenovo UMTS HSDPA MiniPCI Express Adapter (43R9153) for the new T and SL Series.

 

I installed all the ThinkVantages Tools except CSS.

 

After installing the Driver on every system reboot the described AC GUI errormessage pops up. But the Profiles and Network works.
