Re: Dell Mobile Broadband Card Utility and IE8

There is an updated version for the Cingular 5520 series cards.

Which does not fix the issue for me.  sorry.

Re: Dell Mobile Broadband Card Utility and IE8

Strichards,

 

Does un-installing IE8 and going back to IE7 make everything work again?

 

Try system Restore and go back to the time you had a connection.

Yes - Uninstalled IE8 and reboot made it work once again.

Re: Dell Mobile Broadband Card Utility and IE8

Steve,

 

There is something in Internet Explorer 8 that's not allowing everyone to connect to the Internet, either with air cards and even users of AOL. It is becoming a connection issue with not connecting using Internet Explorer 8, so I would recommend that people stay away from installing it. Your computer is fine, it's IE8

 

That's sad to see somthing like this happen with Internet Explorer 8. emoticon.Crying.title

Re: Dell Mobile Broadband Card Utility and IE8

I have a Dell Precision M4300 with a Dell Wireless 5520 Cingular Mobile Broadband (3G HSDPA) Minicard. AT&T is the service provider. I had the same issue but narrowed it down (at least for me) to the "Microsoft Office Live Add-in 1.3" in my Add-Remove programs. Once I removed this, I had to uninstall the Dell Mobile Broadband software, reboot, install again. It works with IE8!

Re: Dell Mobile Broadband Card Utility and IE8

This interesting.  I use Live Meeting all the time and I do have 1.3 installed.  However, I didn't get this problem until I installed IE8.  As soon as I uninstalled IE8, the problem went away.  Were you able to re-install LM 1.3 again, or is it still uninstalled?

Re: Dell Mobile Broadband Card Utility and IE8

Okay.  I have corrected the issue.  With IE8 installed and DMBCU crashing when attempting to start the application, here is what I did:

1. I uninstalled DMBCU

2. I uninstalled Office Live Add-in 1.3

3. I reinstalled DMBCU.  (All okay and working)

4. I reinstalled Office Live Add-in 1.3  (DMBCU started failing again)

5. I uninstalled Office Live Add-in 1.3 (DMBCU working)

6. I uninstalled Office LiveMeeting 2005 (NOTE: I still have Office LiveMeeting 2007 installed and working)

7. I reinstalled Office Live Add-in 1.3 (DMBCU working)

So, I have IE8, DMBCU and Office Live Add-in 1.3 working fine.  However, I did have to uninstall Office LiveMeeting 2005, which is okay, since everyone should be on LiveMeeting 2007 now.  2005 was only hosted, and since MS has upgraded all LM services to 2007, is a non-issue.

Also, based on previous posts this not only works for my card (Verizon), but others, as well.

Re: Dell Mobile Broadband Card Utility and IE8

I found a solution that worked for me in Windows 7.  Will likely work in Vista also.

 I am using IE8 and had all the problems experienced by the others.
 If Windows recongizes the chip, it would show up as "Novatel Wirelss CDMA" in the devices section. 1. Create a new "Dial Up Connection" 2, Set the Dialing phone number to *99# That is it! Connect using that connection.

No user id or password reqiured. And no need for Dell/Verizon hybrid software either.

Let us know if it works for you.
