I have asked this question before of a Telecom staff member, but nobody seems to know the answer:

-  When my MF636 connects to the Telecom XT network, a dialog box always pops up that asks me to select my Network Location:  Home, Work or Public.

-  Each and every time I connect, Vista is making a new connection, so I always get asked this question.  I am up to TelecomData 150 now, after starting at 1.

-  The ZTE software T.03 never used to do this on XP, only on Vista (Business version in my case).

-  Did anybody find a way to avoid this?

It's not a big deal, but 2 extra mouse movements and clicks I have to do every time I connect, which is a lot lately due to the problem of my connection going to sleep (refer to the earlier thread for details).  It would be really nice if there was a way to tell Vista to use the same setting (probably Home in my case) once and for all.

Any suggestions will be gratefully received.

Hi Grant

I have also tried this on my E71, it seems to be the way Vista handles the connection. I believe it would happen on CDMA devices also.

Try this if you want;

Right Click the network icon in the system tray
Click Turn off/on notification of new networks

Another option is to check the box that says "use this setting as default for all connections"...
