we' re facing a problem with the HP Mobile Broadband device (un2340) on our HP 8460p. If you DON'T install the HP Connection Manager you are unable to change the hardware radio state. Once the hardware radio state is enabled by the ConManager you can deinstall the HP ConManager. A third party software can access the hardware and will also find a networkpovider. With out changing the hardware radiostate a providernetwork will be not found, which sounds logical, or ?
To check the hardwarestate you can use netsh mbn show radio="Interfacename". The button on the 8460p will not change anything on the radiostate.
So how can I enable the hardware radiostate to "ON" without installing the ConManger ? Maybe with a switch while installing the driver. We are using WDS.
