Thanks for the response DeeBat.
I do have a wireless LAN Mini PCI card, but it is disabled. I expect to use it later but I thought it may be interferring with the aircard. So I disabled it.
I just checked the Device manager, again to be sure. There are no yellow exclaimation points. Only red X's from things I've disabled as possible conflicts. They are the firewire port, the infrared port, the wireless LAN card, an SD card reader, a MAC Bridge miniport, and an Intel PRO/100 VE Network Connection (is this the CAT5 port?).
There is only one PC card slot so that rules out a problem there.
Could there be a conflict between my dialup modem or software and the wireless card?
Again, thanks for the input.

Here is a snippit of the memo I just sent to my team this morning so I can update this thread as well...
Evidently, Sierra Wireless is still having issues with defective AC881 aircards in the distribution channels. Either the firmware is bad or the SIM tray is ajar on the PCB or both- I will look to firm up the actual cause today. AT&T took this out of stock last week for several days, in what appeared as an obvious move to fix the problem. But ignorance is bliss, as they are back in stock this week after going on holiday, and still shipping with the same issue for some reason. This is going to severely impact our ability to deploy AT&T aircards in the immediate term unless we adapt a different type of bus interface (ExpressCard or USB).
To compound matters further, AT&T has discontinued the PCMCIA-based Option GT Max aircard, leaving us no useable PCMCIA data platform.
