I don't know how to program, I only have experience with html editing and using reshacker to get my aim ads to go away.

My mom has a UTStarCom/Audiovox pc 5740 air card from Verizon (Wireless "broadband" internet). They sold it to her saying it had unlimited access and she was within the coverage area. Her house is located on the fringe of the BroadbandAccess area, but well within the NationalAccess area.
The software that comes with the card, VZAccess, is built to search for the EVDO Broadband signal (fast), but if it can't find it or the signal is weaker than it's slower counterpart, the program hands off to the National 1xRTT signal which is slower than dialup. So basically, if using the verizon software, it signs on to evdo for 3 seconds, then switches to 1xrtt, then its too slow and webpages time out and vzaccess puts the connection in dormant mode. The only way I have found around this was to ditch vzaccess and just go through xp, but that uses the 1xrtt signal too.
I recently saw on someone else's site that he took a look at the dll file that his card was using in VZaccess (I have a different card but it should still apply to my specific dll). He searched the debug print strings for what he wanted to change and got his connection moving, but the article assumes that you know how to edit a dll.
I opened process explorer and found the dll that my card was using while vzaccess was running and found a string that says verbatim: "WMC_NETWORK_ERROR_EVDO_REDIRECT_TO_1X" without the quotes. I need to edit this handoff out so that I can log onto the evdo network via vzaccess and stay at high speed for more than 3 seconds. The pc5740 is the only card that doesn't have an antennae so that is not an option and I don't want to tell her to buy a new card and antennae if vzaccess and windows won't permit constant evdo connection.
** Need to edit the string in my moms wireless broadband program's dll. The string says it redirects the connection from the fast network to the slow and I want to remove this value in the dll since there is no option through the program's interface.
Thanks in advance for any knowledge I receive; I tried to explain that as best I could but if it still doesn't make sense let me know and I will articulate better.
