I just got one and there's no mac software on it, it's supposed to be built in. The windows software is on it, but nothing when I connect it to all my macs.

Novatel has ZERO support.. and endless googling has come up with zip.

First: wrong forum

Second: turn on your mifi(while not connect to your mac) and then type in 192.168.1.1 in Safari.
All your settings should be there.

The mifi doesn't come with osx software and the setup software isn't required.

First off thanks.. I didn't know where to post it..

I know about the web wizard, not an issue. It clearly states in the user manual there's the USB tethering software built in that should open up when you connect via USB on the mac. It's supposed to install the mobilink software that allows usb tethering which gives you access to other features such as SMS, which I need to activate my pre-paid data service overseas.

When I connect it to a windows box the software is there. It's not there for the mac.

Thanks RT. I found that. Unfortunately that's just the 3G driver and doesn't include the mobilink software thats allows sms
