Sorry for hijacking the thread, I also have the same problem with my USB modem ZTE AC682 after I installed Lion.



I can't seem to find Lion compatible driver for this modem even in ZTE website.

Does Apple's USB modem work? I've got one...haven't used it in a while, but I was hoping they retain support...

mf100

For ZTE MF637 and most likely other 6xx modems

Try this: http://www.business.vodafone.com/site/bus/public/enuk/support/10_productsupport/laptop_connectivity/40_software/software/p_mac_osx_lion_vmb_preview.jsp

I know it's a lot of crap to install, but if it works you can keep the kexts and use the remover tool to get rid of Vodafone crap. Sorry i don't have time to test any of this or to extrac the kexts.

The driver should be 64 bit. Use at your own risk.



Man and for the ZTE MF100 do yuo have something thaht cna work with osx 10.7 lion

thanks

Have you tried installing Snow Leopard compatible drivers and booting Lion in 32 bit kernel mode? Should work for now. If 64 bit kernel is not mission critical you can boot 32 bit kernel and use your modem just fine (i think).

Also before that you could try this: http://forum.o2.co.uk/viewtopic.php?p=379149

Also you can try installing same vodafone package for MF637. There is just one driver and it should support all modems.

zte modem compatibility with OSX 10.8

I just upgraded the operating system on my MacBook Air to Mountain Lion OSX 10.8.1 from Lion OSX. The ZTE Data modem model AC2737 does not work now. Can some one help? Otherwise can I go back to the earlier Lion operating system?
