    My new Huawei E180 USB modem for 3G mobile broadband causes my MacBook Pro to crash entirely. I get a strange dark scroll-down over the screen and a window saying I should shutdown or restart. It happens intermittantly. I'm using OS X 10.4.11

    Any suggestions?

    Have you called the maker or retailer to confirm which version of OS X it is compatible with? I see Mac OS listed, but no version specifics. It might be Leopard only.

    It should work with my 10.4, but I wonder if it's about memory? What does the last line in this spec mean?

    Programvara 3Connect
    OS stöd Windows 2000, Windows XP,
    Vista, Mac OS X 10.4, Mac OS X 10.5
    Inbyggt minne N/A
    Externt minne Micro SD

    Atlanta, GA

    Translate to:

    Max size and ext. Memory 2GB

    I assume this means it supports max memory and extended memory of 2GB?

    I have this same problem. There is a problem with the 3connect software but 3 won't admit it!

    If I close my laptop (a MBP15" 2009), when I open the it, it crashes after about 30 secs. However, if I disconnect the 3connect then quite the program fully, I can close my laptop and open it again without it crashing!!!!

    Its the only way I can get it to work.

    Hope that helps.


    OS X 10.5.8
