Singnet BBOM HuaWei E1552 keeps disconnecting manthus Jul 24th, 10, 02:39 PM #1

Despite that I have updated both the firmware and dash board software, it still disconnect in less than 5 mins of net surfing.

Anyone face the same issue?

I call up singtel, they say if confirm hardware faulty then replace sim card first and if problem still persist, then go to Huawei to replace dongle.
WTF...

Have you tried it at other location ? Maybe CBD area which ususally have very good signal.

If you haven't heard already, the 257.15 Beta ForceWare driver set from NVIDIA accidently had the ability for ATI users to again use an NVIDIA card as a second to do PhysX.

It's location dependant.
You need to determine where is it due to your location or the device itself is faulty.

I tried it out on my work place lappy running window XP and it is stable, but not so with my window 7. Same location.

I am puzzled Huawei advertised it as window 7 supported and even Singtel has the cheek to post link to the device dashboard and device firmware update.
It still doesn't help.

For now, I can only narrow down to its unstable support for 64-bit win 7. Had a friend facing the same shit

How about connecting it to a 3G router like the Zyxel or Aztech HW550
It will be independent of the OS you use.

He is right. My HuaWei E1550 and Prolink 3G router PWH2004 are good combination. OS independent.......My 2 computers sharing one connection.
The speed depends on timing. 9pm to 11.30pm a bit slow. Less disconnecting problem also. Worth to try le.

sian.. i just subscribed to their mobile package and it came together with the "HUAWEI e1552" modem too.. i am encountering the god damn same issue when i am using my 64bit Windows 7. I get disconnected in less than 1 min.. after disconnected, u can still see the 2mini computers icons on yr windows bar but u won't get anywhere as u r already not on the network.. i determine my connection by looking at the blue light from my huawei modem..

this device on Windows 7 is hopeless.. don't know why they still giving this modem.. they trying to test consumer's patience is it.. freak.. i also tried using it on my VM WindowsXP.. sometimes i can maintain the connection but sometimes i just can't get it to work.. and it is during none peak hour somemore.. i believe it is that stupid modem issue la but i don't wanna spend the extra cash to buy another modem to test.. anyway i am not going to waste anymore time on this sheit.. i will be throwing this to their helpdesk!
