I am have an issue with Motion LS800 running XP pro Tablet edition S2 and new Aircard 595u.

Card works fine in other PC's but a driver seems to be incompatiable with the Tablet PC.  Driver name is C595U NMEA port (COM7) it loads from the installer and also if you manually re load the driver but the watcher keeps searching for the modem. The driver in PORTS in device manager shows and alert even when the driver is correctly loaded.

anyone got some advice on a possible fix???

Oops I meant try an express of Pcmcia not a USB.
Hopefully you have either of those slots.

Have you tried installing the latest drivers directly from the Sierra Wireless Website?

Also, althrough you have may have tried this you can try removing (uninstalling) the drivers through the Hardware Manager in Windows, unpluging the Sierra 595U and then re pluging it back in (possible a different USB port?), which should re-initate Windows to install the hardware once again?

Best of luck if you havent got a resolution by now.

NMEA stands for National Marine Electronics Association and it is the interface used to transfer GPS data. It is enabled by default at manufacture even though we don't use it here.

Make sure that all the ports used are consecutive. On my laptop it is set up like this:
COM14 - DM
COM15 - CNS
COM16 - NMEA

Fixed the issue, seems the IRQ 10 was already in use by WIFI on the Motiion, this occurs on several Tablets and Laptops according the motion team.

Changed the IRq to 8 and works a treat, must keep in same USB port though but other than that works well. Thanks for help.

The U595 drivers can be tricky many times inoperable with XP tablet OS.  A better solution from both Verizon Wireless and Sprint is the USB720 (VZW) and U720 (Sprint).  I have installed hundreds of these aircards on the Motion Computing LS800, LE1700, LE1600, Lenovo X61, Fujitsu P1610, Itronix and HP tablets.  No problems, they work like a charm.

And because they connect via USB they are compatible with literally all USB-enabled PCs, even Macs with 10.3.9 OS X and later.

The U720 and USB720 are EV-DO Rev A capable with dedicated broadband speeds of 600-1400 Kbps down (bursts to 3.2Mbps) and 400-800 up.  When not in EV-DO broadband coverage both Sprint and VZW have very good nationwide wireless data with dedicated speeds of 60-144 Kbps down and 40-80 Kbps up.

This is my first time posting a reply -- hope we are working within the rules.
If interested in these products call or write IVI Wireless.  You will find us on the web.

Wayne

For us in New Zealand the 595U is our only option for a USB EVDO rev A device, as Telecom New Zealand does not provide the other models you mention.

I had a look at one of these in the flesh last night for the first time.

While the packaging is nice and the design is good, I got the impression it would be quite easy to break the hinges which attach the USB connector to the rest of the device.

Certainly the 595U is nowhere near as robust as the 595 PCMCIA Card or the Express Card version.
