Use "USB Modem" (3G) For Internet And LAN (Ethernet) At The Same Time?

Where I work, need to be connected to the LAN (Ethernet) in order to access remote servers, however these networks do not have Internet access. To access the internet I use a "USB Modem" (3G).Question: I want to use the "USB Modem" (3G) for Internet and local area network (LAN) (Ethernet) at the same time.Problem: Windows 7 not let me do this, since when I plug the "USB Modem" (3G) the LAN (Ethernet) is disconnected.Note: They suggested me to create "a bridge" between the two networks, but this option is not available even if I release all shares in connection "USB Modem" (3G).

Unable To Connect To Modem/internet Via Lan But Wireless Works Fine
My desktop (windows 7 ultimate 64bit) has been able to connect fine to the internet until I got home from work this morning. My laptop is connecting to the same modem fine through wireless (along with my wii). The modem I am using is Motorola SB 901. When I rightclick my connection on my desktop and hit troubleshoot problems, I get 'local area connection 2 doesn't have a valid ip configuration'. Same thing happens when I switch the ethernet cord to local area connection 1. When I go to control panel, network and internet, network and sharing, the connection map at the top stops between my pc and the network (which is now labeled as 'unidentified network'). Here is a list of what I have done so far to try and resolve the issue:

1. Replaced the ethernet cord with one I know is working

2. Full scanned my pc for viruses

3. Disabled all firewalls and virus protection programs

4. Restored my pc to a previous save state

5. Reset winsock with cmd via these prompts: netsh winsock reset catalog and netsh int ip reset reset.log hit

6. This attempt is unfinished as I am getting stuck. I am attempting to setup a static ip to attempt to resolve the issue, but when I open cmd and type ipconfig/all, the default gateway under my local area connection is completely blank.Here is what comes up with ipconfig/all:

Windows IP Configuration
Host Name . . . . . . . . . . . . : Paul-PC
Primary Dns Suffix . . . . . . . :
Node Type . . . . . . . . . . . . : Hybrid

LAN No Internet Access When Connecting To PS3 With Ethernet Cable
I'm a 3g dongle to connect to the net, I previously set up the ps3 to connect through same via the wired connection. That work fine for a bit, until I updated the firmware, Since then the PS can't seem to obtain an IP address and after setting a static IP it gives me a DNS error. On the flip side, my LAN is giving me a no internet access problem(ipv4) and also an unidentified network

I've changed the cable, released and renewed and reset the ipconfig and also flush DNS. I'm having the same problem with my laptop. Both were able to share the connection with the PS3 before.

(Pc runs windows 7 32 bit and laptop win 7 64bit)

USB Modem Not Connecting To Internet
A few days ago i was trying to connect my laptop to my ps3.To do this i was changing setting etc but never got it to work anyway.The next day i turn the computer on and can't connect to the internet.I think it was something to do with dns.I uninstalled and reinstalled my usb modem and software and always get full connection bars and says its connected, but in the bottom right hand corner it says network "no internet access" with a yellow triangle over it.It was because i was changing all of the settings in network and sharing senter, but being the wally i am, never wrote down the original settings. Whatever i did i am fairly certain i did it in the change adapter settings.

Internet Connection With USB 3G Modem *10000?
The problem with Windows 7 and an USB 3G modem is that everytime I use it it creates a new connection, and next time I plug the modem in it will be like "Internett Modem Connection 11" and in the connection list I got many of them, how can I prevent this issue? And can I delete some of them by any chance?

Can't Use Ethernet Network Connection And USB Wireless At Same Time
In our office we have our PC's connected to our inter-office network server via the Ethernet ports (Local Area Connection) with a hard wire to a hub, that in turn runs to our server. We also each have a wireless internet connection on our PC's via a USB wireless adapter. When we were using XP this was not a problem to have access to the server AND the internet at the same time.

When my PC died last year I bought a Dell Inspiron 560 slim tower with Windows 7 to replace my XP machine. The first problem I ran into was that I could no longer use the wireless internet connection AND the hard wired connection to our server operating at the same time. If I stayed connected to our server, I will not have a wireless connection. If I go into the "Local Area Connection" properties and "disable" the connection, I almost instantly get my wireless connection back. The big issue when doing this is if I leave our database program (ACT!) open while the server connection is disabled, I have to shut down ACT!, then restart it before I can connect it to the server. If I try to without closing and reopening it I get all kinds of errors.

So, in the mean time, I have just put a shortcut on my desktop that allows me to enable and disable the Local Area Connection when I need internet access.

A couple days ago, my boss's PC grabbed a virus that slipped past McAfee (that program is now gone!!) and really hosed up his PC. He bought the Windows 7 upgrade software and wiped the hard drive and installed Windows 7. He is now having the same issue as I am.

For what it's worth, he is using a Belkin Wireless-G USB wireless adapter, and mine is a Netgear Wireless-N USB adapter.

Is there any way we can have the two connections operate at the same time like they did in XP? It really becomes a pain sometimes when we are on the phone with a client and we need to jump back and forth between info that is online, and info that is on our server that we access through ACT!.

Can't Remove Internet Modem USB Stick In Windows 7?
I am using Internet Modem USB Stick with my computer. My computer is Windows 7 Professional. I have a problem with removing the Internet Modem USB Stick from the computer. When I insert the Internet Modem USB Stick into my computer and then I wish to remove it, I really can't do so. I, however, can remove the Internet Modem USB Stick from the computer easily in Windows XP.I think it will reduce my Internet Modem USB Stick Lifetime and there probably should effect my computer lifetime if I try to remove the USB Stick without allowing to reject.

Ethernet And Wireless LAN Only Work When Laptop Is On AC Power?
As I started working on it, I seemed to experience very erratic, random issues with the network connectivity. After several reinstallations of Windows 7 and Sony drivers, however, I have identified the pattern. When the laptop is on AC power, connectivity is not a problem. When I'm on battery power, however, the network adapters cease to work and actually completely disappear from Device Manager. The is true even when the battery is fully charged and everything else works normally.I have already tried going into all the power management settings for the laptop itself and for the network adapters and made sure that they are not being shut down when the laptop is running on battery power, and yet the problem persists.

Using WiFi And Ethernet At Same Time?
When both the wireless NIC and the physical Ethernet NIC are both connected to a network that has an active Internet connection, which one will the host use for network data?

Will it randomly use both to get data, or will it choose the faster connection?

How To Share Internet Using WiFi Modem
I have a question about sharing my Internet. Ok my internet provider sends me some analogue signals, my modems gets them, converts them to digital signals and then, sends this Connection to where it should go (I mean I can use this connection using e.g. wifi). I have a vpn connection. I wanna use it on my mobile. My mobile doesn't support vpn configuration. So somehow I should send the vpn connection from my pc and modem. How can I share the internet I am using in my pc using my WiFi modem?

No Internet Access After Resetting Modem?
In order to change my password a service provider had to reset my modem.I can go on the internet with my desktop, but I am having difficulties going on the internet with my laptop. It seems that my wireless router has to be reset also but he can't do it because it's not one of theirs. He did explain to me though that I have to put the I.P. address into the browser in order to get on the router's brand name and so on, which I did but I don't know what to do next. My router's I.P. address is It is a NEXXT Nebula 150?

Laptop Will Not Install Internet Modem Or Printer
I have an Acer Aspire 5740G and for some reason it hasn't allowed me to install my new wireless internet usb stick. I have an older usb stick already installed that I use, but it won't let me install this new one which works fine on my PC.

When I plug in the usb stick it makes that beep beep noise to indicate it detects the device but when I go into my computer the device pops up and then suddenly disappears.

I have my new HP eprint printer installed on my PC however when I plug the usb cable into my laptop after installing the CD it won't connect. This is during the setup when it says "connect usb cable" or whatever - but NOTHING HAPPENS!

New Build Only Connects To Internet When Connected To Modem?
my newly built pc only connects to the internet when directly connected to the modem. when connected to the Linksys WRT54G, the internet does not work and there are no status lights on the ethernet port on my computer. however all other computers and devices, wired and wireless, all work with the router. my new computer is the only one that doesnt work with the router.

1. reset the router and the modem

2. updated all drivers

3. checked to make sure the cable is good and the port on the router is good (they're both good, i use this ethernet cord and router port for my xbox and it works fine.)

4. DNS and DHCP are enabled

5. i've worked on this crap for 3 days now so ive done a lot more trouble shooting than this, i just cant remember everything.

No Internet Through DSL Modem / Slow Snail Through Router
just built a computer installed Win 7 Home Prem 64 on it.Booted, loaded drivers, updated drivers w/usb key and laptop.Slow (4 to 5 kb/s dl) internet speed. Did some messing around, had it at normal speeds after messing around (windows updates installed).Hooked up to my Siemens 567, will not connect to internet.Hooked up to my DIR-655 router, will connect at slow speed.Home is brand new, CAT6 Wired, previous Vista machine worked flawless on this Cat6 jack. Wifi works on laptop just fine. (also vista).Bought a network card, same situation so that rules out my computer hardware and leaves the OS and Router/Modem.I am pretty darn good at computers but this is making me lose sleep and is turning me into a bad fiance.

Huawei E169 USB 3g Modem Driver
I can't get my Huawei 169 modem to function in Windows 7, I've tried both build 6801 and 6956 -same result

As soon as I plug the modem in Windows 7 recognizes it as a usb disk, I can access the disk and launch the on board installer. I've downloaded the latest driver from the Huawei site, but the installer fails with the error "can't find any modem"

If I do a hardware scan in the device manager only the usb disk turns up, but not the modem.

I'm using this modem on this laptop in both WinXP and OSX without any problems, so the modem and PC is allright...

Is there any special windows 7 services that I need to start?
