The integrated modem on the vaio requires a custom build of Cingular Communication Manager. It is only distributed by sony but there is an upgrade to version 6.0 that is available. The latest versions of AT&T Communication Manager will not work with the integrated modem. There is also a firmware upgrade for the modem that resolves the frequent disconnect issue that the internal Sony Ericcson modem had.
Hello;I am having trouble with the Cingular Connection Manager on my Sony VAIO notebok pc. The new at&t communcation manager software is supposedly incompatable with the built EDGE modem;I was able to connect,but was having connection problems. Since re-installing the connection manager,have lost network profiles that were in there originally. Need help in re-installing these network profiles if possibe. Connection Manager is vers.3.7. I am able to go online now (still have connection problems;I resolve that by playing the media player i.e. streaming music while online wirelessly). Also,was able to go online at at&t wi-fi hotspot just using my Pro-Wireless;just needed the coupon codes and I am good to go.Just need help with this major issue. Thank you everyone.

Are you talking about the accelerated connection profile? What's your signal strength (in -dbm)?
Oh,btw I have downloaded and installed the firmware update;it does not resolve the connection issue. It seems that because of accelerated EDGE,it frequently times out unless I use the media player and play streaming music. IE is the worse;sometimes cannot get on at all!! The page says that I am not connected even though the connection manager says I am. When this happens,I use Mozilla Firefox;ha better connection and less dropoff and timeouts.
