Using multiple cellular aircards on laptops
Posted on 2009-04-29
We use Sprint and Verison. We have 60 aircards and 100 laptops. We never know which laptop will use which aircard, so we install both providers on all laptops.
After the Verizon software installs the Sprint software can no longer detect it's modem. To remedy this we decided to just use the dialup connectins instead of the connection manager software. Now we have a new problem- It seems that the Wireless connection tries to use the onboard modem to dial the connection instead of using the wireless card after a card is removed. I've been working with Sprint and Verizon to find a solution and none of us can seem to get anywhere. We've also tried using Aircards of the same model with no success.
The question is does anyone:
A) know how to define a specific modem for a connection to use (the modem disappers once the card is removed, I need the connection to remember which one it should use.)?
B) know of a way to make the different connection managers to work together?
C) know of a universal card manager software?
D) anything that will work?
