598U and windows 7 x64

Does anyone have the 598u and windows 7 x64? It seems to have a below average signal and it drops completely sometimes.Does anyone have this problem or know where I can get a updated driver for it newer than the ones on the sprint website? I think all it is, is a driver thats a bit out of date or something

Re: 598U and windows 7 x64

When I looked on the manufacturer's website ( http://www.sierrawireless.com/), there were no updated drivers. The only thing there was a link back to our downloads site (http://www.sprint.com/downloads). So as long as your version of Smartview is up to date(version 2.27.0064.0), you have the updated drivers. Were you also experiencing this same issue before you upgraded to Windows 7?

I haven't had any issues with my 598u and Window 7 Home Premium x64. it works exactly like it did with Vista previously. Signal strength seems to be similar and transfer rates are about the same.

There is now a new update from Sprint for the 598U version 2.28.0082.AU. It has been working on my windows 7 X64 very well up till today. For some reason or another the Smartveiw keeps wanting to signout on it's own. I am just now going to call Sprint with this problem Since I see no one has even posted the new update yet!

PS. this update does help with the speed ( loading web pages and downloads) and it was my fault the the card kept droppong off I had it hooked up to an extention (not supposed to do that, says so in the manual!) and the 598U was over heating!
