If the Connection Manager does not detect your AirCard® 595U by Sierra Wireless, it could be that:
Your AirCard 595U is not fully inserted into the USB port on your computer or
the docking cradle
Your AirCard 595U drivers are not installed or not correctly installed
Your Windows installation is not up-to-date
Another application is conflicting with the Connection Manager
If your AirCard 595U is not fully inserted into the USB port on your computer or the docking cradle
The AirCard 595U needs to be fully inserted into your computer or docking cradle USB port in order for the drivers to be installed and the Connection Manager to recognize the USB Modem.
To verify if this is the issue:
Remove and reinsert your AirCard 595U into the computer USB port again
If this does not resolve the problem, try using another USB port on your
computer if one is available.
If the card is still not recognized, remove your AirCard 595U and reboot your
computer. Once the computer is booted up, plug in the AirCard 595U again.
