Hi Everyone,


I am new around here so hope this is the way to ask. I recently setup a fresh OS (Leopard 10.5.6) on my Power Mac (4x2.5 GHz PPC G5, 6GB DDR 2 SDRAM). I have not got the AirPort card, as its the rare bluetooth one, and I could not find one for less then 60 quid. Anyways, I plugged in (via USB) my Huawei USB 3G Wireless Broadband and it worked straight away. Then today when I turned the machine on it just does not work. It mounts but there is no internet connection. I tried adding it manually (using the '+' button in the network preferences) but no luck. I could not localise the driver. I found a folder in the Library/Modem Scripts and deleted the Huawei folder (solution found online) but that did not help. I tried to re-install the dirver but when I double-click the driver is says it is already installed. Do not no what to do. Any help welcome, please.


Thanks, Tim

PowerMac, Mac OS X (10.5.6)
