Has anybody worked with the iX104C4 tablet and Windows XP?
Posted on 2009-05-08
I am working with an xPlore Tech iX104C4 tablet that has Windows XP Pro installed on it, but also has an embedded Verizon Wireless card that we use in the field. The problem that I am having is that when we first start up the tablet, you cannot run the Sierra Wireless Watcher (EVDO Watcher) program to connect the modem to Verizon. As it tries to authenticate, I receive the error of "Remote PPP peer is not responding". When I then cycle through the various WLAN and WWAN settings, as soon as I reset the WWAN to ON, then it is able to access the modem and hit VZAccess. My problem is multi-fold: the tablet does not either come up with the WWAN on by default, and for some reason I can't find the section either in the OS or the BIOS to have that set up properly. This is a new embedded card in the tablet that neither Verizon nor xPlore Technologies supports.... Does anyone have a user manual somewhere or some experience with this kind of problem? These are for field services personnel that don't always pay attention to IT instructions, so I am trying to get these setup before they get shipped out. Again, after I cycle through FN-P2 3-4 times, then I can get the modem to connect properly. I have already run through Autoruns, Process Explorer, Wireshark, and SIW with no apparent solutions.
