Never had any issues before; I'd always see the AT&T connection available from the Network Connections area. This is Windows 7 64-bit. I put the SIM into an AT&T authorized USB data card to test being able to use my account on other devices. As soon as I returned the SIM to my battery compartment, I could no longer connect. I've tried replacing the SIM several times as well as uninstalling/reinstalling the Gobi driver. What else might I be able to try - this is so frustrating!

To be clear, the Gobi 2000 does show up in Device Manager (and ipconfig /all with MAC address). And Fn+5 has it listed as on. I just see nothing in my Windows 7 Active Connections taskbar pop-up.

Problem solved: it turns out that if you're out of reception, you don't see the AT&T 3G connection at all. That's silly. It should show zero bars or the X icon that displays on a standard handset out of signal range.

Just curious jminiman,
Have you ever tried to use different SIM card other than AT&T? I placed an order T410 with Gobi 2000 GPS 3G and wonder if I could use GSM SIM card of other carriers (in Europe particularly)
I selected Verizon Open SIM card when configured the machine.
