h Up 'til now, I've never had a problem with my Sierra Wireless 598U. Reluctantly, I replaced my Windows XP laptop with a Windows 7 laptop, and now I randomly go off-line (with an error message saying something about multiple connections not allowed). At first, it looked like the WiFi feature on my version of SmartView was the problem, but disconnects continued after I disabled it. My computer has detected WiFi Networks in my local, but I've never connected to them (to my knowledge). I'm guessing that Windows 7 is the problem, but as far as I know, my Sprint USB devise is the default wireless connection. Something's getting tossed across the room very soon!
Multiple connections on your laptop that are active on your laptop either via through wi-fi or Sprintsmartview. You need to go to start- control pannel-network and sharing center- check all connections.If any other connections are active besides Sprint Smartview,right click and remove from network or disable network(doesent matter wi-fi or DSL).
