Finally! Aircard 875 on Vista RTM

On December 29, 2006, in Vista, by


Okay so we’re a little less bleeding edge.. blogging from a Vista Tablet PC running a Sierra Aircard 875.


The trick is this driver — http://www.sierrawireless.com/resources/support/Software/3G_Watcher_Generic_1236.msi


Trick number 2 is to remove the Cingular connection manager and ONLY use the Sierra 3G watcher software.  That was the step I was missing.  I still had it on the machine.  Remove the Cingular connection and only use the Sierra software.


And there we go…. one Sierra Wireless 875 connected on a Vista laptop …that’s making this Internet connection to make this blog post as a matter of fact…. and a little less bleeding edge to boot…


…now … to find antivirus I like…..

    Thanks so much for this tidbit! I’ve felt naked for the last month without my AirCard.
