Currently Being ModeratedSep 29, 2007 5:12 AM (in response to Karn T.)I use the huawei usb hsdpa modem with my mac and the driver was bundled on a CD when I purchased the modem.
I can email you the driver but I have the Huawei E220 not the E270.Mac Mini Core Duo 1.8ghz ; Black MacBook 2ghz, Mac OS X (10.4.10), Be Pro 24megabit ADSL2+
Currently Being ModeratedSep 29, 2007 7:52 PM (in response to Karn T.)Like Tim, I have the 220 but checking the driver list, it appears to be a generic driver. There is a link to my local service (I use the term loosely) provider. I had to force the issue a bit as there was initially no Mac support.
The information/link is about halfway down on the right of the page.eMac 1.25 + MacBookPro 2.16 (2G RAM) + 3 Mac minis, Mac OS X (10.4.10)

Thank you for your help.

Thanks a lot for your SW. I have still problems with APN configuration.
I'd like to give the modem a new APN for a different provider but every time it tells me "configuration failed".
Could you help me?
thanks a lot

Currently Being ModeratedNov 25, 2007 7:47 PM (in response to lyecwhen)Hi, I'm on StarHub MaxMobile too and I'm currently using the E220 drivers from http://portal.myglobe.com.ph/portal/Suboverview.do?aid=44364&id=1724 for my E270.
It works just fine on Leopard and Tiger and I have not encountered any known problems so far.
The detailed installation guide can be found here: http://www.myglobe.com.ph/myGlobe/pdf/HuaweiInstallation_&_Configuration_for_Macv2.pdf
