Having problems with your Acer Aspire 5610-4648 Notebook ?

Acer laptop and mobile broadband devices

\015 I was told today by at&t store reps that my brand new acer aspire (4730z) would not accept their mobile broadband usb device OR anyone elses. in fact, it would fry my motherboard\015\012\015\012i can't find ANYTHING about this on the web, you'd think if this were a known problem it would be "out there" somewhere.\015\012\015\012can you tell me if that's even possible?\015

Answers :

Even with all of my experience with computers, I can honestly say I have absolutely no idea what they were getting at with those comments. USB was designed on a specific open-platform based in compatibility. Its even in the name; Universal.

While I can give you a definite answer, given I do not know if there is something about these AT&T Connect Devices that is in some way only masquerading as USB, I can tell you that both Sprint and Verizon Devices are relatively easy to install and use.

While it may be that your system does not have a PC Card (PCMCIA) slot that will allow for the use of a Connect Card specifically.

Bottom Line: If it says USB, and has the industry standard USB symbol on it, it should be backed by the standards which would, just short of physical damaged devices, cause no harm to your machine.

Please disregard their ignorance and simply request a detailed specification sheet with which you will be able to match to the specifications in your owners manual. And again, if its USB it is USB.

The software and drivers necessary to control this device are a completely different animal.
