X61 Wireless WAN adapter problem with cellular network

2010-09-13, 13:04 PM

I am user of a X61s 7669 4DG laptop with integrated Sierra Wireless MC8775 HSDPA Modem. Initially it was operating in the Vodafone network. Recently we switched to the other major Spanish operator Telefonica Movistar and now I can not use the integrated card and I have to travel with a 3G USB adapter. I imagine that the integrated card is locked to the Vodafone network and it does not allow to connect to Telefonica Movistar.

 

I would like to know how could I unlock the card to be able to use it with networks different from Vodafone.

 

Thanks and best regards,

You might want to check what 3G band the Moviestar network is operating on in Spain.


From what I could see, it is the 900MHz band (and possibly the 1800MHz band) while the MC8775 card only supports 3G operation on the 850, 1900, 2100 MHz bands.


Cheers,

 

Bill
