evdo and wireless at the same time?

2009-12-15, 22:00 PM

Hi,

I cannot get my T500 to connect to the internet via internal mobile broadband card AND a local wireless network at the same time. When I connect to the wireless network (via Windows connection not thinkvantage) to use my printer or squeezebox, the internet connection disconnects.

 

I am using Windows wireless connection to the wireless instead of Thinkvantage. Soapbox: thinkvantage is too domineering. I can't control my own computer because thinkvantage is like Hal and just takes it over. That being said, I just updated to the most recent version in hopes that this wireless/mobile broadband problem would be resolved. But no, the evdo still drops when I connect to use the wireless.  It's not immediate - I might get 3 or 4 minutes of dual connectivity  but it ultimately drops the evdo every time.

 

I've picked the brains of the linksys folks. They gave it a really good effort. We went through all kinds of configuration gyrations but no luck. Here is that discussion if you want to review: http://forums.linksysbycisco.com/linksys/board/message?board.id=Wireless_Routers&thread.id=149718 .

 

Can anyone over here help me? Many many thanks in advance!

So what are you using to connect with WWAN? VZAccess?  Did you uninstall Thinkvantage Access Connections?

If you aren't going to use Access Connections, you really need to remove it.

Thanks for your reply.

I am using thinkvantage to connect to WWAN. Vzaccess is really clunky. I suspect that this is the problem so I would like to connect to the wireless via thinkvantage. I realize I'm probably asking for a lot: use TV for one connection and Windows for another...
