Can someone provide a link to the tmo connection utility? Thanks.

What is the function of that "part of the Sony cingular firmware upade utility"?? Can I use it to activate WWAN connection without loading CCM and SmartWi ??

Thanks!!

So can I use T-mobile's manager alone to activate WWAN connection without loading CCM and SmartWi ?? As SmartWi eat too much system resource.

Thanks!!

No you still need smartwi to power on/off wlan and wwan. It just replaces CCM after WLAN has been powered on.

So, does this replace the components missing from Smartwi after CCM is removed? ...in order to allow Smartwi to function correctly?

justbooks-the SmartWiHelper2 utility I uploaded powers on the radio on a plain XP or Vista install, no components needed. I've had problems switching back and forth btw WLAN and WWAN though, esp after suspend.

so, this is a work in progress?
What else do we have to work with?

Does anyone know of any other Sony Vaio notebooks that run Vista and have WWAN (WLAN and BT are practically assumed) ...if so, what are those notebooks using to switch between wireless connections? OR just to enable/disable them?

And there is that Sony Wireless Switch utility that we have on these UXes, but it only seems to run the WLAN.

So far: smartwihelper2 /WWLANPowerOn turns it on (and knocks out the WLAN). smartwihelper2 /WWLANPoweroff turns it off (and doesn't restore WLAN unfortunately.)

Intradev,

That works fine for using wwan but once I've turned on wwan and it automatically kills wlan I have no way of reactivating wlan. Is there some way to do this?

Does it work directly on Vista or in XP compatibility mode?

Thanks!
