Sierra Wireless every boot "Configuring Mobile Broadband" and first time trying to connect

2014-06-22, 16:16 PM

Configuration:

X240 with Sierra Wireless EM7355 - Gobi 5000 with driver package V3.11.1310.3981

Access Connection V6.21

Windows 7 SP1 64Bit

Wireless Provider Telus in Canada

 

Problem I have is whenver I boot my system, the modem get "configured" with the following message

"Configuring Mobile Broadband device" and goes form 1% to 100% (about 3 mins)

Then the first itme I try to use the mobile boradband, it does the same thing.

I am then able to use the internet connection.

When I look at the speed, it says 21Mb connection.

 

Help - Questrions:

1. How do I get the system to not constantly configure the modem., I owuld think it would only need to do this once.

2. Sometimes, I see speed of 42mb, not sure how/why I get the slower speed 95% of the time.

 

This is very frustraitng since nobody wants to wait 5 mins before they can connect to the internet.
