Re: NTLK Final Novatel Update (Sad News)

I had to go in with PT100 (terminal emulator). I believe the command
I used to enter config mode was AT\PROG,<password>, and then you can
enter network paramters. This was all in the extended manual I
downloaded from Novatel's web site.

I recall hearing that the Sierra AirCard could not be programmed from
terminal mode, but I don't remember where I heard that or how
reliable it would be.

You'll probably want to poke around to see if you can find a complete
manual documenting the AT command set supported by the AirCard, if

Good luck,
