Hi All,

We're experiencing a problem with a telecom t stick after completing a regular windows 7 update. The t stick was working fine before the update and works fine in a Vista laptop. Is this a known issue and is there a work around? Talking to Telecom business people hasn't helped.

Thanks,
Pete

Yes it was the update that came through on Monday (15th Aug). When the t stick is plugged in the red light comes on then the blue light,  Telecom connection manager is launched, it says its initialising then that text greys out and nothing else happens.

(see reply to last qn) when the t stick is plugged in telecom connection manager is launched, and initialising starts, then nothing.

Have you tried another t-stick or tried the t-stick in another laptop to make sure the t-stick is not actually faulty?




Do whatever you want to do man.

I had a similar thing with my WWAN module. it would connect but not pass data. I am unsure if it was an HP or Win7 update however. And I have since rebuilt my pc (for other reasons)




Hmmmm

We've tried the t stick in a Vista laptop and in another Windows 7 machine which has not had the recent updates and it works fine.

Before uninstalling the above listed updates, try and download the new software for the t-stick from sierra wireless or zte's website. If the stick still does not works, then uninstall the updates, make the stick work and one by one start installing updates to find the culprit.

One more question. By 'new software' do you mean the Windows 7 Driver Tool or the Connection Manager (PC Software).

Thanks,
Pete

Connection manager. If there is new driver also available for the model of your stick then go ahead and install that as well.

Uninstalling/ reinstalling telecom connection manager should resolve it.

Thanks to those who offered advice on this one. All sorted. I removed the 15 August Windows7 updates, and reinstalled the Connection manager. Sweet.
