I'll play with that mode.
Do you have experience with a similar card?
I have the same issue and have been trying to find a solution. I am using verizon USB720 and have the system automatically connect at powerup. It will automatically disconnect after non use and will reconnect automatically on demand. The issue is a dialog box comes up each time.
I would also like to know if anyone has been able to bridge bluetooth to any cellular adapter? I can bridge bluetooth to ethernet so a bluetooth equiped computer can use web services on a remote machine. I would like to offer this as an option in my truckputer when on the move.
ZX1cruiser- this is kinda offtopic, but since you answered the question and your attention is on this, i was wondering if you would know why windows 7 wont automatically connect to a WEP network. it wont connect to an unsecured network without user interaction either but im not so much worried about that- i would like to not have to put in my WEP password every time though. WPA2 networks connect automatically just fine.
!!! :embarassed: i always forget about that... and even though i remember setting them all up as 'home', but that was last install! i just fired up the carpc from my couch and vnc'd into it, and sure enough they were all on public. not sure if it works for sure, but i think you are right.
i revisited this topic because i finally found the best way to connect my cellphone internet (bluetooth dial up networking), but the windows autoconnect feature is very annoying.
this can be done silently in the background. just create a .cmd file with the rasdial command.
1. create a text file and name it whatever you want, like autoconnect.txt
2. enter this code with your information swapped into it
keep the quotations. if you dont use a username or password, just omit those parts.Code:
rasdial connectionName "myUsername" "myPassword"
3. save file and rename it with the .cmd extension. so mine would be autoconnect.cmd
my autoconnect code looks like this-
thats it. you can even make another cmd file for disconnecting. just add /disconnect to the endCode:
rasdial "Dial-Up Networking"
i have my autoconnect file mapped to a physical button in my car. now i just hit that button, and it opens that cmd file. you will see a command prompt for a second or two, and it either connects or doesnt. either way, no popups stay open. i turned my connection properties to "never dial a connection" in 'internet options' from the control panel. now it only connects when i tell it to.Code:
rasdial "Dial-Up Networking" /disconnect
im sure there would be a way to run it as a task to, where it keeps trying to connect when there is no connection present. essentially that would give you a much more discreet autoconnect feature in windows.
