Hardware :: Using 3G Modems And Mobile Broadband - Best For Mac?

Mar 16, 2009

I've been using 3 (UK) mobile broadband for about the last year now, paired with a Huawei E220 USB dongle. At times this has worked well, but it quite often has unexplainable issues which I'm growing tired of.

I'm wondering what experience others have had with 3G modems for the Mac. Are there any particular modems that worked especially well for you?

Likewise with UK providers - is there anyone in particular you've found to work well? For reference I'm looking at general use in and around London where the 3G coverage is pretty good.

I'm leaning toward the Vodafone USB Modem Stick 'Pro' on a 24 month package for �15 per month. Their network appears to be one of the fastest (7.2mb), Voda's coverage is generally good, and the modem has the bonus of doubling as a USB drive with the addition of a microSD card.

OS X :: Mobile Broadband - No Pictures Are Coming Up?

Jul 17, 2009

have just gone onto an 18 month contract with tmobile, and it is working fine - speed and connection wise.

Now I have the aluminium macbook (if that makes a difference...) and for some reason, whenever I go onto a webpage, 90% if not all the images dont load.

For example on this forum, the mac rumors: forums logo comes up, but when looking at smilies and stuff in the thread they do not.

They have blue boxes with ? marks in them.

This happens on every website I go onto. I have tried safari and firefox and the same thing happens in both.

I have windows 7 on here aswell that I boot into using boot camp, and it works perfectly fine on there - so its definitly a mac related issue.

The stick I am using is the 530 stick from tmobile.

OS X :: Since Installing My Mobile Broadband - No Pictures Show Up

Jul 12, 2009

so I dont know why, but I have recently purchased a tmobile mobile broadband stick on an 18 month contract, but for some reason the pictures are not showing up.

For example , when making a thread, all the smilies and stuff have those white question marks in blue boxes.

Apparently the dongle just makes the mac all messed up and go crazy, and is reversible - have had a look on the web , but to no avail.

OS X :: Do Any Mobile Broadband Adapters Work With Snow Leopard?

Oct 18, 2009

I have tried a Sierra mobile broadband adapter from AT&T and an Ovation mobile broadband adapter from AT&T but both do not work.

The Sierra card gave a "terminal failure" and the Ovation card cause a kernel panic.

Does any carrier make a mobile broadband adapter that works with Snow Leopard without a tweak or hack?

Software :: Unable To Start Snow Leopard / Installed Software For Mobile Broadband Usb

Sep 9, 2009

I've just bought a new MacBook Pro, it came last week (or perhaps the week before) with 10.5.7 and I immediately bought the upgrade to 10.6. It seemed a little buggy, but nothing I could put my finger on, but this morning I couldn't start - just the apple and spinning wheel. The only thing I've done since my last restart is install software for mobile broadband usb.

I can't reinstall my system software because it's "old" (ie 10.5.7 and I've installed 10.6).

MacBook Pro :: Won't Find Battery Life Info / Plugged Or Not Plugged

Oct 17, 2009

I use my MBP 15" (the new one), as my primary machine in my office. I sit by my best usually 10-12hrs a day working on it.

I am trying to figure out what is best to do, keep the AC plugged in or have it un-plugged and only plug it in when the battery is drained (or less then 50%)? I have tried different experiments, plugged in, not-plugged and time is about the same for life of the battery. The true question is, how is is best to do it for the health of the battery.

OS X :: OS9 Rewind - Broadband Connection

Oct 31, 2009

I've reloaded OS9 on my G3 400 iMac, with the intention of bringing it back up to 10.3 after a 7 pass HD clean. Last night I downloaded the firmware upgrade on my current iMac and transferred it via USB flash pen, but it's unable to read it, presumably as it was written with an Intel OS and it appears with a PC icon. I don't know if downloading it via the original iMac would make any difference. However, as it can only has dialup internet access, that's out of the question with my broadband connection.

While I'm at it, I may a well ask, what is the fastest way to get to 10.3 Panther? I've seen another site, but can't locate it again, where it said 9.1 would have to be installed before then installing 10.2 Jaguar. Is this correct?

MacBook Pro :: DVI Dongle Not Working But VGA Does

Feb 26, 2012

NVidia 9400M with updated drivers. DVI dongle works inconsistently (more often not) but VGA dongle works perfectly on 17" Unibody i7 Arrandale with NVidia 9400M. Can anyone explain this or advise a fix? There was no software changes I can think of that would have caused this. Could I have inadvertantly damaged the video pins for DVI but not VGA or do they share? I have not tried reformatting and reinstalling the OS. I am running W7 x64.

Applications :: Optimising Broadband - Satellite!

Apr 5, 2009

I'm currently on Satellite broadband (unfortunately no other option where I live) and the latency is, as expected, very high. While downloading files is no problem, loading pages like NZHerald and using Google is awful. Generally it takes forever (slower than dial up) and often Google fails to load.

Can someone suggest some third-party software so that I can make this bearable?

I've heard of using software to somehow optimise broadband so that it requests sites differently.

MacBook Pro :: Battery And Usb Broadband Modem

Jun 8, 2010

got my mbp 15 i5 last week, ive been testing my battery, already recalibrated and all that.. i get 8+ hours on full charge on idle.. pretty average on normal use, around 5-6 hours. anyways so while i was testing my battery, i decided to unplug my usb broadband modem to see how much battery it's draining from my laptop. but to my surprise my battery life went down from approximately 3 hours left, to 2 and half ! i even waited 5 minutes so it can properly calculate it, but it didnt increase. so my question is wuzzup widat?! shouldnt it be the other way around? i was planning on canceling my wireless broadband contract when it expires and just wirelessly tether my newly jailbroken iphone via mywi for internet access, but its seems like wifi is a minus on the battery, but usb modems are actually a plus.
