I have a Verizon Wireless air card that I use for internet service. I bought a new Dell Latitude D800 with Windows XP Professional and a wifi card installed. I installed the VZW software and logged on using the VZW card.
After a few minutes the VZW application popped up with "disconnected" and closed itself. I opened it up and tried to connect but it said "Modem is in use" message and said I couldn't connect.
So I rebooted and updated the software thinking that was it. Nope. It does the same thing.
So I went into communications and disabled everything I could find (network connections, wifi card, etc) and rebooted and tried again.
I even went into task manager to see if there was another instance of it running but there isn't.
At least now I get a good 30 minutes before it kicks me off and I have to reboot. But it's really annoying. Anyone know what the problem is and how to fix it?
