Improve Sierra Wireless Air Card Performance by dumping ATT Communication Manager

If you have a Sierra Wireless air card and use ATT Communication Manager for connection interface I feel your pain.  The fix is to go here, http://www.sierrawireless.com/en/Support/Downloads.aspx, select your model of air card from the menu, and download Air Card Watcher.  Connect to the Internet with Air Card Watcher instead of ATT Communication Manager, and you'll be amazed at the difference in time to connect.  In addition, your connection will perform as it should, without the usual erratic behavior and disconnects.  This is especially true for those who live, work or travel outside major urban areas.  It's probably my vindictive nature, but I found it intensely satisfying to wipe that miserable piece of garbage, ATT Communication manager, out of my laptop.  Enjoy.  I certainly do.

Link you provided is broken. This one works though: http://www.sierrawireless.com/en/Support/Downloads, then just select your device.

 

(some advice: check your links before posting them)

 

Also this is in the wrong section [Per Guidelines:  Keep it Relevant and Appropriate].
