I've not used the sierra before but this may be applicable. With GPRS modems, you typically have two different options. One for when the GPRS network is available and one for when it is not. You can use the modem as a regular old modem (except painfully slow) by dialing your ISP's regular dial-in number. Or you can set it up to connect directly to the internet through your cellular provider. I'm guessing this is what the network connection in question is all about. With T-Mobile you would configure the network connection to dial *99# to connect to the gprs network and have a somewhat less painfully slow internet connection. Of course you have to unload more coconuts to make this work.

The best place to go to find answers to this type of question (not that experts exchange isn't an excellent source of information on most everything) is http://www.howardforums.com If you can't find the answer in the database, you'll be able to find some geek who will know the answer.

Hope this helps at least a little.... good luck,

todd

This practice of never following up on questions is far too commonplace on EE. Not that anybody, including myself spent a lot of time trying to help, but as  a solid contributer to EE, it seems that bbao would realize that people have taken time out of their day to read these questions and try to help where they can. Nobody has benefited from this. I don't understand why a question that is important enough to ask can't at least have a resolution posted.

I don't mind not getting points, I don't even mind not having my input acknowledged. I just hate wasting my time trying to help and not even having the opportunity to learn from the effort.

hi tmcguiness, thanks for your feedback, but i am afraid that you might have misunderstood what i meant, i agree to delete THIS question, not the original question. in fact, this is a question for index or reference only, commonly, experts should post their comments to the original question where may gather all the comments centrally, this will be helpful to other people who read this KB thread later. could you please re-post your comments to the my original question? thanks again for your help. regards, bbao

Hi bbao,

I'm sorry for venting on you... especially to find out it was my mistake. I guess I should pay more attention, maybe other questions that I have responded to and have been dropped were also pointers like this. I wasn't aware of this practice.
