    ***FIXED****Verizon PC5750 or USB720 w/MII 10000

    Thanks Turbocad6 for your suggestion...When you said try DUN, I couldn't create a connection. I got an error message "Remote Access Connection Manager could not start". So, I went to services to see why and that pointed me to the problem.

    My Telephony service was disabled which in turn did not allow Remote Access Connection Manager to start. RACM is dependent upon Telephony running (for dialup and for some cable/DSL connnections). I disabled this option some time ago during my build because I was not going to use DUN. Once I set Telephony to manual, RACM started and the install completed. It works great now.

    I was trying to free up resources and optimize my PC by disabling some services. I went to blackviper.com for recommendations...Great site that explains MS services.


    If some of your programs/applications don't work, check your services.

    I cannot get the Verizon PC card-5750 or USB version-720 to finish the setup of the VZ Access Manager software when it prompts to insert the device. I originally got the card since I have a PCMCIA slot and it did not finish the setup. I contacted Tech support and they stated that the PC card does not work with a PC only with a laptop (I tried it on a laptop, it works fine). So, I got the USB type and at the same point, it did not complete the install. So, I went to Device Manager and I see the card or usb using a com port (rearranged so it will not conflict) and still nothing.

    I have the Cingular card (Sierra 875) and it connects and works fine with no problems. I do not have it connected during the install.

    Does Verizon cards/usb work with a PC? What could be the problem?

    My setup...
    MII 10000
    1 GB of Ram
    40GB Samsung 2.5 hard drive
    24x/DVD Rom/CDRW slim drive
    GPS receiver (BU-303)
    Dlink BT120 (USB)
    Xenarc Touchscreen (connected to VGA)
    XM Radio tuner(w/MP3car USB adapter - power is feed directly to M1-ATX)
    iFree USB Mini Keyboard (love it)
    7 Port USB Hub
    Compact Flashcard (2GB)
    2 - System Fans
    M1-ATX (Do I need more power - like a M2-ATX)?

    I don't have any power issues right now with this setup but since I am adding the PC card, do I need more?

    Edited:
    Ok...I have unplug my 7-Port hub that had most of my USB connections and the only USB connection I had left was my wireless keyboard (of course VGA was connected). Still, the card or USB720 would not finish the setup even though it shows as "working properly" in Device Manager (no com port conflicts). The problem seems to point toward power since I still had my MP3 USB adapter directly wired to the M1-ATX. I have not tested this theory yet. So, I will see if this could be the problem.

    Any suggestions anyone?


    Thanks for your help....

    Mine USB720 fine, I havent had a problem at all with it, but then Ive never had a power issue. I dont think it would be a power issue because if it were pulling more then the M1 can put out everything should shut down, (but not sure because I have never had any power issues. Most Verizon employees have no idea what they are talking about (the day after I ordered my I760 I called to get some accesories and the rperson said the phone wasnt out yet). I would try to power it up on your home PC and see what you come up with.

    I went back to the PC5750 to install since the USB720 did not finish but it did the same thing. Since my Cingular AirCard is working, I thought maybe it could be a conflict. So, I uninstalled Cingular software, rebooted and tried the install but still stuck. So, I reinstall Cingular software (udpated version) and it installed fine and it works with no problems. So, both the PC5750 and USB720 will not complete the install. This is very strange that this does not work especially the USB version.

    I'm out of options other than to look at power unless I missed some other settings.

    you can try to do this without the verizon software, which sucks anyway. you can set this up as a regular dial-up connection, you don't need the verizon software for that, just plug the vz hardware in, when it asks for drivers navigate to the vz disc & feed it the drivers, it'll install as a modem, then set up a connection to #777, user name is your # at vzw.net (I think) & password is either vzw3g or just vzw... I think it even takes it without a password...

    with evdo the venturi software that get's bundled with the vz software is not very useful it works better without the vz software, cause the vz software keeps diconnecting & connecting as necisary, but you can do a dialup to be always on without the latency of the vz software...

    hope this helps

    Just thought I'd add that Verizon's response concerning their cards not supported on a Desktop is just a canned answer so they don't have to deal with potentially more combinations of hardware/software and support calls.

    Completely unrealted to carPCs, I have a desktop operating a dun connection over EVDO with a PC5750 card, with no-ip software (since static IPs aren't available with Verizon in this area at this time) and client access software loaded for 24/7 access to this location. Its in an area way out in the boonies, and no other broadband is available with the exception of a T1 or some other expensive solution.

    The setup works GREAT! It was the main reason I chose my EPIA MII 12000 for my carPC which is currently a work in progress. Well, that and internet radio in the car!
