  • recent updates for AT&T aircard

    I have an AT&T USBConnect Mercury air card. How do I get recent updates?

    Firmware updates for Cellular data modems such as this are pushed Over-the-Air (OTA) by the cellular carrier in your case AT&T. To do this the card preferably has to be in a laptop/desktop (as opposed to a cellular router) and you should check you firmware update option in the software (select between to update automatically or manually and set frequency to check for new updates). You can also use that software to check if there’s any updates.

    Now for non-standard updates such as if you need to get a driver for a new operating system then you can get that directly from the modem manufacturers website. In this case check the Sierra wireless website under Sierra Wireless Compass 885 USB. For windows 7 updates checkout this link
