    "This upgrade is not compatible with any device currently present and powered on". This is the message I receive after installing.

    The WWAN is enabled in the Wireless Switch Utility in the taskbar?

    Are you using XP or Vista?

    This file never worked for me either… Firmware Update for Sierra EVDO Rev A Module for Verizon: EVDOREVAFW006001.exe


    I use this on my cf-30 MK1 and run XP not sure this will run on Vista. The first file is the usb driver run this first….then run the second which is access mgr. Lets get this going….then we can lock it to Rev A

    I upload them here…

    You are probably right. I think the card may be defective. The only thing I do not understand is how it made it to Heartland and back without them discovering that the card was bad. I tried the Panasonic VZ 6.2 as well. Same result. I sure appreciate your help though. Seeing I lost everything I had in the Toughbook when they re-imaged I wish it would have worked at that expense.

    Thank you Nick, I will give that a try right now. I cannot send this thing back to Heartland until Monday anyways.

    I do not really know how to explain the sound when it tries to install the driver, the only thing I can say is it keeps making the sound like when you power on and off the wireless switch. Only it does this a whole bunch of times. While doing this, I keep an eye on the Device Manger. There you can see the Network adapter changing its status with the exclamation point error. We shall see if this works.

    If you have and XP Pro disc and drive available you may consider loading XP

    Try this….right click on the 5725 modem in system properties and uninstall… then make sure all the modem software you have tried is uninstalled and then restart…then run the two files again.
