FAQs for the Vodafone Mobile Broadband software

What happens if I insert the card first?

Unlike the USB modems most of the PCMCIA datacards are not plug and play, so they require the special software drivers that are provided with the Vodafone Mobile Broadband software for correct operation. The drivers loaded by the operating system (Windows or Mac OS) will not operate correctly.Some newer devices (the Vodafone Mobile Broadband USB modem, for example) have on-board memory that can store the necessary drivers and software and so can work as plug-and-play devices (if this function has not been disabled on your computer).
