3g PPP connection
I installed a Sierra Wireless 875 pcmcia card for a 3g WAN. I set up the PPP connection, and it listed only one modem port, which I used. However, the 'Country' dropdown box on the next line never gets populated. I entered the GSM phone number, rebooted, and the interface actually came up and works, but the 'Country' dropdown in the PPP setup is still blank. I can browse the web, albeit slower than on my 3G phone. I'm getting about 500 kbps up and 300 kbps down. I've lowered the MTU down by 50's to 1300. I get up to 700 kbps down on my phone.
So my questions are: Is this card working properly? Is there a reason the Service Provider fields won't populate? Is there hope to speed up the connection?
What do you mean by it doe snot popuplate?
Can you show screenshots?
I found the same issue. As you can see, Service Provider - "Country" dropbox is empty…..
I had this problem months ago. At the time, I had mentioned that it didn't work in IE8, but worked in chrome.
Yes, it was a browser issue. I didn't come accross the same problem doing a search.
The speed seems better now that the correct settings are in place. It also held an IPSEC VPN connection over the weekend without dropping…
