    I've bought and installed that card.

    The dip switch is
    OFF
    ON
    ON
    OFF

    Windows recognize the new card as "USB Device" with the following code:
    VID_04DA&PID_250C

    I try to install this software and driver that I found here:

    but I get the error below:

    Gobi Device not found.

    Is that driver correct? Or where can I find the right driver?

    Thank you

    Is the wireless utility software installed?
    Is it enabled?
    Is the wireless mechanical switch on?

    I found this elsewhere.

    Switch 1 = ON
    Switch 2 = ON
    Switch 3 = OFF
    Switch 4 = OFF

    Requires 2.0L15 BIOS

    I don't know, what's?

    Yes, sure.
    Also the led is turned on.


    With this setting Windows doesn't recognize any card and the led in turned off.

    The bios version is V2.00L13 as shown in first message. I have to update? Where I can found the right bios?

    Yes, I have seen later my post.

    Other two question:
    • I have read that there are some bios that are for windows XP and other for windows 7. I have windows XP and I can't reinstall it (I have some installed software without installation cd). This bios is compatible with XP and can I update without need to reinstall XP?
    • How I can update? I've search other topic but I don't find. I have seen that in the zip file there are one batch file and two executable, I have to run the batch file in Windows?
    Thank you for the patience

    It works!

    I've update bios to the 2.0L15 version, set the dip switch as shown up but neither bios and windows recognize it.
    So I set dip switch 0110, bios and windows recognized it. I used driver found from panasonic site and they works.
    I must use "connection manager" of windows xp because other software don't recognized the card or don't find 3G net.

    Thank you for your support :)

    I have successfully installed the HP card into a CF-19 MK5 A/B with Windows 7(Will work on W10 too). I was facing the same issues that using the supplied driver installation solutions have been giving. The auto driver tools however are only checking the motherboard/identity of the computer and will automatically cancel the installation regardless, however the Drivers themselves are completely capable of running the hardware on this laptop.

    What I did is I used Snappy Driver Installer. This is a Driver pack solution I use at my computer repair business, I tried it as a last resort and to my astonishment it went without a hitch. When you run the tool you will need to check mark an option towards the bottom left to show (Not installed) devices. Simply look for your wan chip to show up (HP hs2340 HSPA+ in my case) and check mark the box, then hit install. After it unpacks the drivers (This tool stores all drivers for most brands locally in 7z files) it automatically installs the drivers themselves bypassing the OEM Installers. After the initial driver installed it found about 5 more sub-drivers for protocols and etc, simply check those new results and install them just the same.

    After installing via Snappy Driver Installer, I connected to my local WAN network using an AT&T Sim card, low and behold I was able to make this post with WiFi/Ethernet disabled.

    This tool is a life saver, though I will not recommend using it to update other drivers for the Panasonic, best to stick with the OEM provided ones (I had a nightmare of bad driver installs using auto updaters on the CF-19)
