Having problems with your PC Desktops ?

I have a Toshiba Satellite notebook with Vista Home and NAV 360 and recently purchased a Sierra Wireless Mobile Broadband USB modem T-Stick D597. When I try to install the T-Stick, I keep getting an error message "Watcher not responding" but after about 20 minutes, it does install and works ok. I have installed the T-Stick on another Laptop with Windows XP and it installs quickly and perfectly. There seems to be a conflict somewhere - can you please help me? Regards, Graham Scott.


Answers :

You might want to disable the WiFi that is built into your laptop before installing that device. It is very possible that the built in WiFi is conflicting with that Wireless Broadband Device.
