Whaddya know what Wireless Card to use going overseas?

Whaddya know what Wireless Card to use going overseas? Try Sierra Wireless AirCard 881U service provided by Sprint Nextel.

I've tested the Sprint Sierra Wireless Compass 597 here in the US the result is better bandwidth and faster internet access compared to Verizon Wireless Broadband Novatel Wireless USB727. If you have a different opinion, please add it here.

Now let's go beyond USA wireless internet data, what about travelling international? I have to try Sierra Wireless Aircard 881U (USB) for 2 different countries for Sprint International service. For this specific destination, we are using GSM network because the CDMA service is not available to these countries.

Installation of Sierra Wireless Aircard 881U (USB) software on your workstation. It should be automatic when you insert the card to one of your laptop USB, and if not open your My Computer, on the USB drive, click on the Setup.exe to install the software. It will create a short-cut to your desktop named as "3G Watcher".

Testing your 3G Watcher software for Sierra Wireless Aircard 881U card is not possible within USA. The Sprint Customer Care provides 1-817 number for technical assistance for GSM or CDMA for international support.

I will keep you posted after I receive feedback from my user.

Frequent Account Lockout in Active Directory

I have a user in Windows Pro 7, and Windows Server 2003 environment that is frequently account locked out. I tried many different scenarios to resolve this account lockout issue, from resetting his password, changing a new password, remove and re-join the domain, rebooting the workstation and active directory servers.

I tried to use the command prompt utility to run "rundll32.exe keymgrdll, KRShowKeyMgr" (case sensitive) to delete the account in Windows 7 password cache, and still no luck.

Still searching for answer ... Let me know if you encounter a similar issue in Windows Pro 7 and Windows Server 2003.
