Tim, thanks for the prompt and helpful response. I had not used that one and it looks really good. I downloaded it, uzipped it and it installed. I then connected the huawei modem and tried to connect but got " not phone service detected, try your phone line and try reconnecting. The light on the modem was originally green and had turned to a steady blue. I tried running the installation system on the 3 comm modem and it mentions it is installing another driver. How to I check the dongle is using the new snow leopard driver. The system still works with the original slower modem when I swop the sim card back over. Your assistance is much appreciated.
remember to setup the apn on modem as per your provider details.
I just use the driver not the 3rd party software.
once the driver is installed I rebooted my mac plugged in my huawei modem.
Then open network prefs.
I created a new network location and called it HSDPA.
My modem was recognised as a network port. So removed all the other ports, airport, ethernet etc
My provider is t-mobile
So I created a modem configuration called t-mobile but that is not necessary.
(the following details may be provider specfic'
telephone number *99#
account name blank
check the box 'show modem status in menu bar'
Then i click 'advanced'
in the modem tab
Vendor : other
Model : HUAWEI Mobile Connect 3 G modem
leave everything else as default click ok
I apply this setup, then from the menubar click the phone icon and choose connect
worked first time for me.
Thank you for the excellent instructions. I followed them but it still says phone service unavailable or similar. I wonder if it is because 3Comm have not activated the faster service with the Huawei modem, but have the slower service with the other 3Comm modem. I will check with them. (i moved from one contract of 3 gb a month download to the higher download 15gb and got a faster modem in the package. Sounds odd, but worth checking out.
Thanks for your help. Will update you when I get a reply and when it works
