I am not sure if all these steps are needed but this is what I did to get it going.

--Lenovo x61 7676-5cm
Fresh install of Win7
Install MC8775 drivers from lenovo
Installed "Access Connections" 5.50
Could see the Telecom network and tried to connect, does not get an ip.
Downloaded and installed The Generic Watcher for the AirCard 875
