Uninstall VZAccess completely and all iterations of it.

 

Install the latest VZAccess for the card from http://www.vzam.net.

 

It should work now, if it prompts you to do a firmware update, DO IT, then reboot when it tells you to.

 

Even when all set and done reboot the computer and it will work fine.

Do a SIM card reset as it will FORCE it to redo all the settings fresh from the VZW network.

 

Shut-off computer. Take USB modem out. Remove SIM card physically. Wait 10 seconds. Put it back in. Put modem back into computer. Boot computer.

I work for a Non-Profit, and they just got a bunch of these.

 

The very first one I tried to install keeps giving this error message no matter what I do.

 

Have un-installed, re-installed, sim remove and re-insert, nothing.

 

Have changed USB ports, did the firmware update (on very first install, has not asked about it again).

 

Odd thing is, that there is now a network port accociated with it, and it keeps going into a disabled state.

 

It is getting really annoying.

 

I have about 10-15 of these yet to install on other systems, and if a solid solution is not available I am going to recommend they just return all of them and keep the 3G cards we have now.

 

I am not impressed so far with this card.

DOH!! that's what I get for trusting the folks in OUR office they tell me everything.

 

I just got off the phone with Dion and he was VERY VERY helpful.

 

turns out it was NOT a Verizon problem, it was our company had not activated this card yet.

 

I am up online working.

 

Once again thank you to Dion for all the help and the VERY QUICK response.....
