Although there are a variety of error messages that you may encounter when trying to connect to the Internet using your Sierra Wireless™ Compass™ 597, most of them can be resolved by checking the items below:
If there is sufficient signal strength to connect
If low signal strength is displayed in the Sprint SmartView window, move to a location with better coverage. For a map of coverage in your area, using an alternate Internet connection browse to the Sprint Coverage tool, enter your ZIP code and click Go.
If Sprint SmartView has encountered a problem
The Sprint SmartView software and/or the Dial-Up Networking connection associated with it may have been corrupted. The easiest way to rule this out as a potential problem is to uninstall the software using the Windows Add/Remove Programs feature and then reinsert the modem to reinstall the software and drivers.
