Vodafone Huawei 3 G Dongle will not work on Satellite C50 and Win8

Recently bought this laptop running Windows 8.
No matter what I try, I can't do this USB 3 G Huawei Vodafone dongle to be recognized by this Toshiba laptop.

This dongle works in all our other laptops and laptops and tablets from other brands with Windows 7 or Windows 8 is certainly not something to do with the dongle the software, he moved, drivers or the operating system.

At a time where it is plugged into the port USB, he opens the window asking what we want to do, telling me that the port and USB controller works, but that's all that.

When you open the Vodafone software to connect to the 3G option Connect is grayed out and no device is indicated. In other words, it is not to recognize the modem for a reason any.

As he is OK anywhere else, it must be something to do with this Toshiba laptop.

Any suggestions / help would be greatly appreciated.
We have loaded other versions of the Vodafone software and it made no difference. It must be a hardware conflict problem.

It seems that the device does not recognize the USB dongle.
Did you test all USB ports?

As much as I know Satellite C50-A-xxx supports 1 USB 3.0 port and 2 USB 2.0 ports
Check all three ports.

You can also delete all the USB controllers and hubs in Device Manager and restart the laptop. After restarting again the unit should automatically recognize the USB ports.
Also try to disable the sleep & Charge USB in the BIOS (if available).

  • A WI - FI connection does not work on Satellite C50-A-179

    Hi all!

    I am owner of laptop Toshiba Satellite A-C50-179 (PSCGAE) with Windows 8, and recently I tried to install Connectify on it.

    However, Microsoft Virtual WiFi Miniport Adapter was missing on the laptop and given this Connectify couldn't work. I tried to activate/install somehow using advice found on the internet. The suggestion was to reinstall the driver for the wireless adapter.

    I uninstalled the driver original and reinstalled again after you download from Toshiba Web site ([here | http://www.toshiba.eu/innovation/download_driver_details.jsp?service=EU&selCategory = 2 & selFamily = 2 & selSeries = 312 & selProduct = 7934 & selSh ortMod = 3969 & language = 13 & selOS = 40 & selType = 97 & yearup load = & monthupload = & dayupload = & useDate = null & mode = al lMachines & search = & action = search & macId = & country = all & selectedLanguage = 13 & type = 97 & page = 1 & ID = 86778 & DISO = 40 & driverLanguage = 42])

    I'm sure that I downloaded and installed the right driver for the right card that is "Qualcomm Atheros AR956x Wireless Network Adapter". I made prior to installation to verify all the information on the adapter and the driver.

    However, after the relocation wifi stopped working completely:

    -l' icon/network adapter wireless connection 'Control of the network connections and Internet\Network' is there but it does not behave as it should, it looks like a generic and not specific to a network connection icon - basically, it does not represent the actual adapter and got the name of it in the note;

    WiFi - option in Windows 8 settings menu-changes PC network settings has completely disappeared (bluetooth option is still there and so is the flight mode option);

    -wifi can be turned on by pressing on activate in the menu of RIGH click that generic network connection I mentioned, but it will not pick up any signal and will find all the same connections so it is certainly.

    There is no yellow exclamation point in Device Manager list and the wireless adapter is thus, to act and to pretend as if everything is fine and working properly.

    I tried troubleshooting, installing the driver using Windows Update, the installation and update of its properties menu driver in Device Manager and all kinds of things like that, but none of this has helped and wifi still doesn't work.

    Basically, the laptop seems to think that the adapter is not working properly and everything is fine HW and SW wise, but in reality it is not. I don't really know what I should try, I don't want to reinstall the entire operating system, because I'm afraid (or I) would mess everything up even more (wasting yet more pilots).

    I'm running on a cable internet connection now, and I'm happy it's working (I really need the laptop for work and I can't afford to lose for a day, not to mention some more)

    Could someone help me please?
    Any ideas how to solve this problem and make the wifi working again?
    I will be really grateful for any advice.

    Thank you, Miko31.

    Problem is that Toshiba does not support the third party software and if the problem occurred after installing Connectify you should contact support and ask for help. I mean they know how their software works and perhaps a workaround solution that can help you.

    This software is not known to me, but I can imagine there are now a few conflicts. What should do? It is not easy to say. Try to remove the preinstalled software and clean the registry entries.

    In the worst case, you must reinstall OS and reuse for laptop with factory settings.

  • Siri will not work in 9.2 and iPhone 9.2.1on 6

    Anyone has the same problem with Siri failure here?
    My iPhone 6 Siri was "deaf" since iOS 9.2 was released, even with the latest Apple 9.2.1 update.
    But my iPhone 5, iPhone 4 and iPad Air do not have this problem however.
    I have tried several solutions on this support communities, as give Siri and Siri switch to female British setting, restart the iPhone, reset the network, same settings restore iPhone third time), he still have no answer. I thought it was my problem with the microphone, so I tried the third party such as 'Google search' app, when I say 'Google OK' ITS ANSWER!

    So it certainly not the hardware problem.

    Check your Wi - Fi network connection or cellular 3G or LTE data whatever you used. Sometimes lost connection to the Internet or to slow speed internet Siri could not work properly.

  • NETFramework will not work research restoration help and user account blank screens

    When I try to access the microsoft fix option it says need net framework, but it is installed to restore the white screen go to the empty user account go to help the screen white screen

    Do not rely on any Microsoft Fix option never work.  They might work, but I not rely on it, count on it or expect to work.  You'll usually just fix things yourself by hand (as this problem of yours now).

    Your screen just says 'User accounts' user accounts in the title bar and have just the rear buttons, forward and home?

    If your system restore page display only the title bar 'System Restore', or your accounts settings page of users shows that the 'User accounts' title bar and the screen where information needs to be is an empty white box...

    System Restore is a frequent target of attacks by malicious software.  If SR was working before and is now afflicted, run some scans and then fix any problems.

    Remember that the system restore is not a time machine.

    Your system is currently or has been reached by malicious software.

    You can now fix the symptom and find malware later, or you can now search for malware and fix the remains later (but you need to do both).

    I recommend just fixing the symptom of the empty page and forget to do the scans.  The symptom of the problem of fixing and fixing the problem are two different things.

    Download, install, update and do a full scan with these free malware detection programs:

    Malwarebytes (MMFA): http://malwarebytes.org/
    SUPERAntiSpyware: (SAS): http://www.superantispyware.com/

    They can be uninstalled later if you wish.

    The scans using own it may also be necessary to re-register some dll (or you can do this part first, but you still have to do the scans).

    To solve the immediate problem:

    Looks like your file jscript.dll became somehow not registered so you can re-record it.

    There are probably a few other things that do not work you know yet, so fix them all at once.

    Re-registration of these DLLs is correct, even if they do not need renewal.  You can also re-register the dll before the scans that can solve the problem, but the scans are always recommended.

    Click Start, run, and in the box enter orders following one at a time.  Click the OK button to execute each command one at a time.

    regsvr32 jscript.dll
    regsvr32 vbscript .dll
    regsvr32 /i mshtml.dll (it's a look of slash)

    The last order for mshtml load the DLL but can also contain a harmless warning depending on your environment.

    Now check your timetable for restoration of the system and/or the user account settings page.

    1. What is the brand and model of the computer and satellite box material?
    2 are the satellite decoder and a remote compatible with Windows Vista?

    You can review the Windows Vista Compatibility Center and check if the hardware satellite you are using is compatible with Windows Vista-

  • The plug-and-play USB mouse will not work on Satellite A100


    I have a laptop Satellite A100 laptop and when I try to install a plug and play mouse windows says it is not recognized - unknown device.

    Please help the mouse works.

    Thank you very much

    Hello Jayne

    It will be really interesting to know where you're trying to connect the USB mouse. Can you send description of mouse models please?

    As I know it is not necessary to install a driver for external USB mouse and mouse is usually recognized automatically. Please check if a driver installation is needed, and even request delivered must be preinstalled.

  • System Restore will not work for any date and computer says that it is running in auto mode.

    I have a 30 GB master and slave of 160 GB. 26/03/11 I copied a large file of 11 GB of the master to the slave because I received alerts that the disc was or almost. After you have copied from C to D, I deleted the C file and the missing file of the two drives. I tried to use the restore of the system without result. No matter what I do "Unsuccessful System Recovery" is the only message I get. Is it possible to recover a file that took me hours to compile it?

    This looks like a self-inflicted wound / pilot error.

    Deleting files in the Recycle Bin does not release disk space.  When you delete things in the trash, all you really do behind the scenes moves the items from one folder to another folder (the folder to the Recycle Bin).  They always take place until you clear items from the trash.

    System Restore won't help you recover personal files anyway - this isn't what he does.  SR cares your personal files.

    A backup will help recovery of personal files.

    I think it's against the rules for people at Microsoft to suggest or sometimes even to read all the information of any URL Internet that does not begin with microsoft.com, where the previous warning about third party programs.

    However, I think that to get off the beaten track (as they say).

    This is a popular program of third party who sometimes helps to recover accidentally deleted files:


    It may be too late for your files, but I would also check the configuration of your trash if you have several volumes of hard drive from your symptoms question do not quite add up correctly.

    Even if SR would not help in this case, your SR expected still works what is another potential problem to solve.

    Now I'm folding stock and return things to the technical support engineers.

  • network variable will not work with VBAI 2010 and windows 7


    In fact, I have a problem with 2 EVS-1464 (windows 7) and VBAI 2010.

    I have to use network variables to allow the communication between two electric vehicles, but I can't use it. My network is ok (I can ping between the two facilities) but I can't (t access the network variable.

    I did a test with VBAI2011 EVS / VBAI2010 PC windows XP--> it works. (but I don't want to use VBAI 2011).

    You have solutions to solve my problem?

    Thank you



    Here are several documents that might be useful for you:

    Using the LabVIEW shared Variable

    Troubleshooting network-published static Variables

    How can I use shared Variables to transfer data from Vision Builder for Automated Inspection (VBAI)...

    You can also try something. To do this, you must go to the EXE VBAI here:

    For 32-bit machines:
    C:\Program NIUninstaller Instruments\Vision 20XX\ VBAI

    For 64-bit machines:
    C:\Program Files (x 86) \National Instruments\Vision VBAI 20XX\

    Right-click on "Vision Builder.exe", and then select Properties.  Make sure "run this program as an administrator" is checked.

    Click OK, and then try to rerun VBAI. You may need to redeploy the variables in the variable Manager until they work properly.

  • WiFi does not work on Satellite C50 - B - 14 d, but shows the connection

    IM extremely frustrated and im ready to return this piece of trash to the shop

    my wifi connectivity (4bars) Watch, but Web pages don't load, if they do they will be load then completely stop working after a second

    not surprised because I know that this product is not very good, but im wondering if this is a software problem or a missing codec, im ready to send it back to the shop, but I was wondering if I can solve it with a simple solution


    How about the connection to the LAN?
    Have you checked it?

    From my point of view there would be some kind of problem with the WiFi modem/router as the laptop is already connected to the router correctly.
    If in doubt recommend you also contact your ISP (internet service provider).

    My internet point of view, availability of connection must be checked!

  • Portege M750 Win7 64 bit Wireless Manager (3G) will not work

    I can't TOSHIBA Wireless Manager (3G) to work in a new installation of Win 7 64 bit.

    I did a test installation of Windows 7 64 - bit on and old SATA hard drive and checked TOSHIBA Wireless Manager would work. He did.

    I then did a fresh install of Windows 7 64 - bit on a new Crucial C300 Real SSD 256Go.

    The new facility with the Crucial SSD is not very successful... The operation "stop and restart" does not - the closing not always power off completely and you must push the switch down to.

    Sometimes the SSD does not start - you enter the password of the BIOS but then nothing happens. Sometimes you turn off the power and remove the battery before as the startup disk.

    But the biggest problem is that the (3G) Wireless Manager will not work. The application opens and indicates that "died" - which it is impossible that I use WiFi to post this question.

    I tried to install the software Vodafone 3 G portal. It detects the presence of the 'mobile device' (SIM in housing) but then can not turn it on.

    I downloaded and installed all the latest drivers for the chip, the pilot 3G, 3G software, LAN driver, LAN software and all updates of Windows 7.

    I have the latest version of the BIOS (3.0) but this has not been updated by Toshiba since 11/04/09.

    I would point out that Diagnostic PC Toshiba tool does not recognize the installed 8 GB memory (but ccleaner):

    Model name PORTEGE M750
    Part number PPM75E-00N017EN
    Version of the OS Microsoft Windows 7 Home Premium 6.1.7600
    Version of the BIOS Version 3.00
    Processor Intel (r) Core (TM) 2 Duo CPU P8400 2.26 GHz
    Physical memory 4096 MB RAM
    Disk capacity hard 256,052,899,840 [bytes] 238.468 [GB]
    Network Intel(r) 82567LM Gigabit Network Connection = version = MAC address
    TOSHIBA F3507g Mobile Broadband Network Adapter version = MAC = address

    F3507g Mobile Broadband Modem Modem TOSHIBA version =
    Internet Explorer 8.0.7600.16385

    This indicates a BIOS problem?


    points to a problem of firmware on the SSD drive (is it sandforce) torque to the incompatibility of BIOS of the SSD.

    I assume that all drivers installed etc were identical on the installation of the trial of HARD drive? so if this is the case it must be the SSD does not not with the BIOS correctly, so the other issues as well

    Hi, I bought a the United States iphone6, im now in South Africa and it will not work. It says sim not supported.how do I fix this?

    The SIM card is not support indicates that the iPhone is locked to the American carrier that it has been activated with. In order to obtain the released lock it is necessary that you talk to the carrier to find out what their requirements are to release the lock. They are the only ones who unlock it so that it can be used with another carrier.
