    "It was working, and then it wasn't"

    April 21, 2010  |   By wburychka

    Pros

    The one time it worked, it worked quite well. The trial was free.

    Cons

    It only worked once, immediately after installation.

    Summary

    It worked like a dream--installed normally on my netbook with Windows 7 Pro. Connected and the laptop was online. DSL Reports speed test showed 827 down and 326 up. Not DSL but certainly usable. Then the dream turned to nightmare.

    Then I did the standard "Does it really work?" test. Shut down the computer and restarted same. That was it. No more connection. Error 17. Error 3300 or something. Error APN. And so on. The company's FAQ answers to these problems either don't work or point to settings that don't exist in WinMo 6.5.

    Oh well.

    Failed to mention. Phone is an AT&T HTC Tilt 2. And while my laptop was connected working the first (and only) time, I got a phone call. The connection worked while I was on the phone. In fact, I had to check email on the netbook while I talked, and both worked flawlessly. Too bad it was a one hit wonder.
