Cause:

There are multiple causes for this error including system setup, system timings initialising the device and VMC software version. 

Resolution:

1) Ensure Network Connection relating to the device is enabled.

Control Panel

-
 Network Connections (Network and Sharing Centre -> Manage Network Connections on Vista) or (Start Menu -> type 'view network connections' in search field and double click returned result on Windows 7)

- Ensure the Lan or High Speed connection using the Vodafone Mobile Broadband Network Adapter (Huawei) is enabled.

2) Ensure Network Adapter relating to the device is enabled:

- Control Panel

- System

- Hardware Tab

- Device Manager (Control Panel - System Device Manager in left hand menu on Vista and Windows 7)

- Expand the Network Adapters heading and ensure the Vodafone Mobile Broadband Network Adapter (Huawei) is enabled.

3) If on you are on an older VMC version of software, update to VMB 10.1 (or higher) availablehere.

4) Further to this, if using the K4505 and you have firmware 11.818, it is recommended to update to 11.870. 

This will not resolve the 608 issue, but will improve connection stability especially under 2G conditions. The firmware for the K4505 can be updated as follows:

- Download the firmware update utility from the bottom of this thread.

- Ensure the Sim is removed from the modem, modem plugged in, Vodafone Mobile Connect software not running and computer on mains power

- Double click the K4505 Update 11.870.02.10.11.B455.exe to run

- Follow on screen prompts to apply the firmware update ensuring device is not removed and computer is not switched off during the process

- Once complete, reboot the computer

Cause:

This error message usually indicates that an error is being generated when the modem is asking to connect to the Access Point Name.

Resolution:

 

In Version 9 or previous versions

- Recreate Profile.

Within Dashboard go to 'Manage Connections' and select “New”. Create Profile as normal and retest. 

- Ensure the Vodafone Mobile Connect Software is set to the correct Account Type.

In some instances the account type can be changed (often in error) resulting in the 619 code. Going to “Settings” and “Change Account Type” and making sure the correct option is selected (either Contract or Prepay).

- Connection type

Try amending the connection to 3G Only or GPRS Only to see if this alters the symptoms. To do this:

- In VMC go to: 'Manage Devices'

- Click on your modem and press 'edit'

- Click the 'Network Preference' tab

- Select desired option and press 'OK'

 

 

 If all of the above doesn't help, contact us here so your account can be checked to make sure it is set up correctly.

 

 

In Version 10

 

- Recreate Profile.

 

In the dashboard select Advanced

 

- Ensure the Vodafone Mobile Connect Software is set to the correct Account Type.

 

In some instances the account type can be changed (often in error) resulting in the 619 code. Select the Function button in the top left corner, click Options then Account type and select the connection you are using (either Contract or Prepay).

 

Try amending the connection to 3G Only or GPRS Only to see if this alters the symptoms. To do this:

 

- Click Advanced

 

- Click on the Devices tab

 

- Highlight the device that you are using form the list and click on the bearer Icon in the Hardware section

 

- Select the desired option form the list

Issue:

 

When connecting with VMB 10.1 using a K4505 modem, RAS error 635 might be encountered

 

Resolution:

 

Firstly, check that VMB is set to connect to correct account type. This can be done as follows:

 

 

  • Click on the red icon at the top left of VMB
  • Click Options
  • Click Account Type
  • Ensure you're set to Pre-Pay if you're on PAYG or Contract if you're on Contract
If the above information is correct then please download the file attached to the bottom of this post and then follow the steps below:
  • Extract the contents of the zip file to a location on your computer (normally done by right clicking on the file and selecting "Extract All" or "Open with" and the relevant Compressed file tool)
  • Ensure the Vodafone Mobile Broadband software is not running and there is no active connection to the Vodafone UK network in place
  • Double click on the extracted "EFS Recover.exe" File to run the tool
  • Click on "check" to check the device, this may take several seconds
  • Once complete you will be presented with a results message, this will be one of the following:
  • "EFS Profile correct successfully” : Indicates the EFS Profile required resetting. Retest the connection via the Vodafone Software
  • "Unable to find the data card, please restart the data card” or similar : Indicates the device is in use, or the files have not been extracted correctly. Ensure Vodafone Mobile Broadband software is not running (check Task Manager and ensure “mobilebroad.exe” or “mobileconnect.exe” are not running) and that the files have been extracted from the zip file.
Once this has been done, try connecting with VMB again, the issue should now be resolved.

Issue:

 

The connection has been terminated by something on your side of the connection, rather than ours. This could be the modem itself, or Windows.

 

Resolution:

You will need to Install the latest version of VMB that is available for your modem after checking our compatability list.

Cause:

This error normally indicates a conflict with either other hardware sharing the same port(s) as the Vodafone Mobile Connect device, or 3rd Party software trying to use the same ports as the VMC software.


Resolution:

The steps for resolving Port conflicts will vary from device to device. To begin with, the following steps can be used:

- Go to Start Menu and Control Panel

- Select the System icon (in Classic view)

- Select the Hardware tab and Device Manager

- Expand the “Ports (COM & LPT)” heading

- Right click and select properties on the Vodafone Mobile Connect port device (description will vary depending on device in use)

- Select the Port Settings tab and Advanced

- Change the COM port number to an unused high end com port e.g. 250 and click OK twice to return to device manager

- Repeat for any other VMC related port components (ensuring to use a unique port number for each component

- Reboot the PC and retest

For software conflicts with 3rd party software (other connection managers, port redirection utilities etc), the following “Clean Boot” process can be used to troubleshoot, and in some instances, pin point the application/utility at fault:

To Apply “Clean Boot” on Windows XP:

1. Click Start > Run. 

2. In the Run window, type following text: 

msconfig 

3. Click OK.

The System Configuration Utility appears. 

4. Click the General tab. 

Click on Selective Startup and make sure that "Load System Services" is the only item checked. 

(You will be unable to unselect "Use Original BOOT.INI." This is OK). 

5. Click the Services tab. 

6. Select Hide all Microsoft Services. 

Warning Do not skip this step. You must hide the Microsoft Services before you go on to step 7. 

7. Clear all the services that are still displayed on the Services tab. 

8. Click Apply > OK. 

9. Click Restart. 


To Apply "Clean Boot" on Windows Vista: 


1. Click Start Menu, and type msconfig in the search bar. 

2. Hit return (or double left click) on returned Msconfig file to launch System Configuration utility. 

The System Configuration Utility appears. 

3. Ensure the General tab is selected. 

4. Click on Selective Startup and make sure that "Load System Services" is the only item checked. 

(You will be unable to unselect "Use Original BOOT.INI." This is OK). 

5. Click the Services tab. 

6. Select Hide all Microsoft Services. 

Warning Do not skip this step. You must hide the Microsoft Services before you go on to step 7. 

7. Clear all the services that are still displayed on the Services tab by selecting “Disable All”. 

8. Click Apply > OK. 

9. Click Restart. 

If error is cleared then this indicates a conflict with another service or application running on the machine. This will require enabling each service/application one by one and retesting to find the service/application at fault.

Note: When you have completed your troubleshooting, follow the steps in the next section to configure Windows to perform a Normal startup: 

- Rerun MSConfig utility as detailed above

- On the general tab click Normal Startup. 

- Click OK. 

- Click Restart.

Cause:

We've seen increasing reports lately of the K3760 modem failing to install fully, particularly under Windows 7 systems. The modem installs itself as a Mass Storage drive and the Vodafone Mobile Connect software installs - but once loaded displays "No Device Detected" and no modems listed under "Manage Devices".

Resolution:

To correct this, please download the attached Utility. Extract the .exe file and run this with the modem plugged in. This will force your modem to move on to the next step in its installation, and register the modem onto your computer.

Once complete, please re-load Vodafone Mobile Connect and re-test your connection.

Issue:

 

When using Windows 7 64 bit, VMB reports that there is no device, or it continually searches for a device. There may also be a driver installation failure message when the modem is plugged into the PC. You may also get an error 31 against the modem component.

 

Resolution:

  

  • Download the zip file attached to this thread. This is a utility from Huwaei that will resolve the issue.
  • Extract the Zipped file to any location on your PC
  • Once unzipped, open the file and follow the on-screen prompts to install it.
  • Once the installation is complete, please re-install the latest compatible version of VMB for your modem.
