1. Install theÂ Reliance Netconnect software from the CD.
2. If the Huawei Connect software does not recognize the Data card, go to Device Manager.
Vista will assign multiple â€˜data interfaceâ€™ devices under the â€˜Other devicesâ€™ category for the data card.
Right click the device, select â€˜Update Driver Softwareâ€¦â€ and browse toÂ Reliance CD. Make sure â€˜Include Subfoldersâ€™ is checked.
Repeat for all other â€˜data interfaceâ€™ devices. Vista should indicate the successful installation of the following devices:
- HUAWEI Mobile Connect â€“ 3G Modem
- HUAWEI Mobile Connect â€“ 3G Application Interface
3. Shutdown and re-start the laptop. Restart the Huawei connect software and Connect.
If you get a â€œConnection Failed: Please check the wireless device or the Settings of the Network connectionâ€ , you will need to setup a DUN manually:
- Click â€˜Startâ€™ and â€˜Connect Toâ€™
- Click on â€˜Set up a connection or networkâ€™
- Select â€˜Set up a dial-up connectionâ€™ and click Next
- Select the data card modem.You will be prompted to choose between Huawei Modem and Huawei Data/Fax â€” Select Huawei Modem
- Enter #777 into the dial-up phone number field
- Enter username and password and enter â€˜Relianceâ€™ or something similar as the connection name
- Click Connect
4. Once this is done, you should call up *228 from ur datacard using the dialer. Donâ€™t forget to plug in the headphones provided with the modem into theÂ datacard.
5. Listen carefully, follow instructionsâ€¦ provide the MDN no./scratchcard no. when asked.
If all goes well, you will get an sms in the next whoknowswhen(some say.. 15min.. some 3days! take it to be 45 minâ€¦). The sms has ur password.
Use to connect.
This is for those lucky ones with the old(!) WinXP. For the Vista guyz, u need to first download theirÂ Vista driver.
That is for the lucky ones with ordinary Vistaâ€¦.
What about Vista 64 bit guys!?
ThoseÂ jÃ»rks didnâ€™t upload the Vista-64 bit drivers.
For these unfortunate souls with Vista 64bitâ€¦ here are the drivers I uploadedâ€¦Â Vista-64bit drivers. Save it.
I didnâ€™t get it anywhereâ€¦ but theÂ Reliance WebWorld(yaâ€¦ they suck real badâ€¦ @least the ones @ Bangalore) where I had bought the card from. Of course, I had there a couple of times to sort out my datacard issues. The damn thing didnâ€™t work even after installing drivers correctly. Something to do with the datacard internal whoknowswhat.
Note: The driversâ€™ address for Reliance DataCards changes sometimes, please try outthis link too.
