Have a Sierra Wireless 308 on Telecom XT that will connect but won't give send and receive data or browse internet. Is on an XP laptop, the connection gives a DHCP IP address etc including DNS. The watcher shows 0 data sent 0 data recieved. In a different machine it works fine. Have uninstalled and reinstalled but still no data.
Any suggestions?

Tried downloading the dialler / software from Sierra?? I always download and install the software from the web rather than using what comes on the stick.

Otherwise I could swap it for a Sierra 885 which works fine ;)

The issue will be something to do with your machine, if the same device works fine in another machine. Can the first one browse the internet at all?

Could it be your Windows Firewall is blocking the dialer?

As said, it must be on the machine itself, seeing the device works with another PC.
