Did you know that if there is inactivity in with your PC 5220 card, your connection will go into dormant mode, which disconnects you from the EVDO network and there is a 5-10 second pause after your try to access the web or email? Below is a tip to keep your connection active and from going dormant.

OK, I like this, it works but on my PC it "Clicks" every time it refreshs which is VERY Annoying. Do you know how to set your IE Browser to NOT click? Thanks for the tip also

I just tried on my Win XP Sp 2 laptop and it does NOT play a sound, must be a setting in your IE.

I have not upgraded to SP2 since I am in IT and have had enough issues to stay away as of now. I hate spending time "fixing" something that wasn't broken until Microsoft gets ahold of it. Anyway I have looked everywhere in IE and in Sounds under the Control Panel but no luck. It's actually somehow setup to "Click" when i click on any hyperlink on web pages so I just have to find this. Grrrr Anyone have an idea.

Here is how to remove the audible click:

Forums Rock!! Thanks Hannah. I work on computers all day and have had one since I was 6 (22 years now) and I could not figure it our, even searching KB on Microsoft. Thanks again, with forums all things can be figured out. I have the V710 and on howardforums almost all the issues have been resolved thanks to the power of forums.

I have tried all the tips and fixes, and I still get connection drops during webbrowsing on a Verizon 5220 EVDO card. Even if I am actively clicking on websites, etc.. it still drops me about every 20 seconds. Even the auto-refresh webpage does not fix this problem.

I have updated the hardware, software, and talked to tech support about 5 times in 2 days.

I am going to return the card, and try a Sierra Wireless 555D. I realize the speed will be slower, but hopefully I will not have this dormancy, disconnect issue.

Don't give up yet! Please post some more information:

- OS being used
- Verizon Driver version?
- if on Win, are you using compression (disable if you are)
- what is your PRL version (did you update this?)
- how many bars are you getting?
- are you getting EVDO signal?

PostPosted: Wed Feb 23, 2005 11:44 am    Post subject: New EVDO Dormant Application Posted (free)

A new application for Windows and Mac OS X has been posted at EVDO-Info.com, instead of having a browser window refreshing every 15 seconds (which is annoying, easy to close, etc), there is now a simple application that keeps your EVDO connection from going dormant.

More info at:

PostPosted: Sun Feb 27, 2005 6:30 pm    Post subject: dropped connnections

I had the same problem, until I traced what was happening. I use an Apple Powerbook to connect to the Internet. My browser is Omniweb, which has a connection activity window. It shows what and where the URL's I am loading are coming from. The damned ads that load were knocking me off, killing my connection. Believe me, I know your frustration. I was very sorry I made the 5220 purchase until I discovered the problem.

I found an application, AdGate, that stops and kills the ads from loading. In turn, I have been connected for over a couple hours or longer using the card. I still monitor the loads if my connection drops. I can add the offending URL to AdGate, and flush my cache using my browser and another app I use, NetBarrier X3.

If you can stop the ads and other nonsense that loads when you are browsing, this will solve your problem.

Anyone know if there are any switches that work for Dormant Killer? I am trying to set it up to launch either minimized or in silent mode, when VZAccessmgr connects.
TIA

Another app that works nice is TeamSpeak2. If you want to do Voice over IP on the cheap while you're at it.

Whenever you're connected to a server, TeamSpeak will blip a small UDP packet every second that holds your wireless connection solid.

you are bumping a thread from 2005.

IIRC, it was a batch script to ping a random ip over and over to make the isp see activity all the time and "trick" the modem into appearing active at all times.

if you want to make a batch file or run the code from the command prompt it's something like:

ping verizon.com -t

and that will keep pinging verizon until you exit the window or press ctrl c to stop. Hope this helps, I don't think it ever worked for me but good luck.
