I have mokkula E160E & windows xp.
The problem is that the connection drops every 20-30 minutes even with high signal strenght (always 3G, always 7/10 bars signal strength) and normal internet surfing & e-mail (ff/IE, thunderbird).
Software says it's still connected but 0 kb/s and clearly no packet activity, ff/IE and thunderbird times out.
It doesn't help to disconnect and connect again, I have to remove the mokkula and re-insert it, restart the software so I can re-enter the pin code again... it connects and stays connected for another 20-30 minutes and then I have to repeat the same procedure again after 20-30 minutes..and again.... and again.
Help & About says Mobiililaajakaista 1.0.0 BL 49. Is there a newer version to download that might fix the problem?
This is starting to get abit annoying.
And no, the connection is never idle too long, so the laptop never goes to any power-save modes etc.
I just updated the firmware here:
But it makes no difference.
I read somewhere that the USB power output is around 0.5W and the E160E mokkula requires around 1-2 W peaks (higher watt with higher connection speed?). Could the power peaks cause the connection to drop?
Any suggestions to fix this? Should I have to continue paying bills for a faulty product?
