Does anyone know how to install the Dell Wireless Utility for AT&T on a Dell Latitude E6500? I was able to install the 5520 drivers using the method here http://blog.marc-seeger.de/tag/5520/1 but I can't figure out how to get the utility to install. When I try to install it I get a message "Not a dell compatible system" The file I am trying to use for the install is DELL_MULTI-DEVICE_A05_R216783. Thanks in advance.
Maybe you didn't read the question correctly or you are just not familiar with the devices I am asking about..... The 5520 card was not available in the E6500 and neither was Window 7 so the system software will do no good in this case. The 5520 is an older card that actually came in my D630 but I moved it to my E6500. For some idiotic reason Dell locks their driver and software installs to particular models of computers and to the OS installed on them. Since this is an older card and the driver nor utility have been updated for it there's no out of the box method to make it work. I am looking for a "workaround" The drivers worked fine once I hacked around the model and OS check. I need a simliar way to install the software.
I finally figured out a solution to this. If anyone else is interested here's what I did....
On a supported model laptop (I still think it's insane Dell locks the WWAN cards by laptop model) in use the AdminStudio 9.5 repackager to repackage the Dell setup for the 5520 card utility. Now I have an msi that will install the utility on any model computer I care to use it on. :-)
Oh finally I've found someone with the same problem as me. I'm trying to download the AdminStudio but I you shared the unlocked msi I would really appreciate it
I've solved it using this file: 20417934_MUU_EU870D_103_7_EMEA_open_sim_v1a.exe
It flashes the device and updates the OS. After that, install Mobilink lite and you are good to go... Enjoy
googled the file, and only found it in a few places that I am not sure about "trusting."
Where did you find the file? and did it work in Windows7?
