Took out all my Network connections!!! Need restore help.
Tale of woe.
Bought Iridium modem
for a 9500.
Bought a USB to serial
converter, tried to install but was bad hardware
Bought another USB to serial
converter, seemed to install OK.
Can't get satellites at home, too many buildings. Can't get internet
. Run back and forth for one hour for each of the following steps, sometimes twice. Frustrating.
Try to get data connection to work
. Dead. Fart around for a couple of hours a couple of times with no joy. Remove and reinstall software
. All seems OK, but no response from 9500.
Find an online trouble shooting guide, need to have SIM provider enable SIM card for data. Call and find out card is not enabled. OK, they enable card.
Back to boat
seems to get further in process but phone
still never responds.
Remove and reinstall software, try different ports
, swear at Gods, etc.
Computer starts acting funny
, freezes up, etc. OK, time to remove all crap and call it a week. Connections disappear from Start menu.
software won't uninstall.
Remove directory. Can't - dll's in use.
Start in safe mode. Still can't remove Iridium dll's.
Computer decides to reboot, and while thinking about shutting down I manage to get Iridium dll's off.
Now.....network connections radio
button gone from Start, can still get to it from Control Panel
No network connections work
, they seem to be there and connected but can't get IP address. Network is OK, I'm using it now.
Can't install a new network connection.
Can't find anything useful on internet
Loath to take machine to a "professional."
Ready to scream.....
