Re: Can't use VPN over Cricket Broadband
said by boomersmech:How are you both routing your VPN connections (i.e. clients, possible added routes in computers)? My Juniper VPN client from work fired right up and all the needed routes worked from day one.
Any PPTP will fail during authentication usually on a windows machine with error 721.
Re: Users name and Password wtf? hope this helps you out a little bit... first off, it depends on which modem you have. If you have the A600, you can try to go into your network connections and right click on the cricket connection, choose options and check the box that says "always prompt for user name and password", click "ok". Then double left click on the connection again, you will be prompted for a user name and password, your user name will be your 10 digit number @mycricket.com , your password will be cricket, make sure it is all in lower case. Secondly, make sure that the number it dials is #777, and make sure that remember user name and password is checked, click dial. That should fix your issue. If it does not, and this goes for the UM100c also, a simple uninstall / reinstall should fix this. Remember to uninstall both the Quicklink mobile or Cricket Link program (depends on which modem you have) and also the modem driver itself, both from the add/remove programs in your control panel.
Re: Users name and Password wtf? well, the only issue with Vista, is the user account control while installing. If you disable it, you should have no problem. If I were you, I would call up tech support (I work there), and tell them that you're having the user name / password issue, they can refresh your device in the switch, and make sure to have them check your device numbers versus what they have in the system. If you go to your QLM program, and click on help-> about quick link mobile, you're gonna find a whole bunch of info about your device and connection. You want to make sure that the phone number is the same, the MIN, your RSSI should be less than (aka closer to zero) -100 dbm. Also, if you have QLM installed correctly under Vista, you can try another trick that works sometimes. Go to tools -> activation. It's gonna say "this device has already been activated....." just click yes and make sure that is say update "NAM parameters" and "updating PRL", then check your connection. 1 more thing, make sure that no other network connection is enabled! That is probably the number 1 problem we encounter. What happens, is that any network connection other than Cricket Broadband will cause the BB card to go into a "dormant" state, and start to act really funny. Hope this helps, I'll keep checking back....
Re: Users name and Password wtf? Hopefully by now Tier 2 has gotten back with you. It has been my experience, that c-r-i-c-k-e-t in all lowercase is the correct password for all devices, however, as i was doing some research today, I found out that some legacy devices actually use the password c-r-i-c-k-e-t- 1 as the password. Normally, though, a simple uninstall / reinstall does the trick. Your issue really perplexes me, because honestly I have only had a couple of instances where I had to submit an OTTO for a username/password error. I'll check our databases again to see if I can find another fix. Let me ask you, have you gone to the store yet to have them check the modem? Don't go to a dealer, go to a full service store, and ask them to check the device on their computer. There might actually be an issue with your modem and sending the right info to the server. If it works ok on their system, then you can rule that out, and focus on computer or install issues
| || Nostalgia can be intoxicating. It can even be disheartening, in that the past can never be reclaimed at least not tangibly. As a young kid playing cricket on the street, in community clubs or in schools, all of us had grandiose cricket dreams to imagine what we would be one day, achieving ultimate greatness in the realms of cricket. Our dreams stretched beyond the limits of our own persons, since cricket is a team sport after all. We would dream about winning tournaments in our own community, joining the big boys in the big leagues, and hoping to decimate them on their own turf. Such were the joys of childhood.|
However, must we look only to the past to find that solace? We are privileged to have alternate means of imbibing the joys of the cricket experience following our home country teams with an unmatched fervor, feeling like millionaires when they transcend greatness, and terribly depressed when they disappoint us. There is fantasy cricket which allows us to pit our selection wits against the best of them. Different cricket fans have different ways of getting that cricket experience what other means can you think of?
There are cricket games of course. PC, Playstation or Xbox, Games have a wonderful ability to enable us to recreate our own reality, putting us right in the midst of the action allowing us to reclaim the emotions that we used to experience when we hit that nasty fast bowler on the street for six, or splintered stumps bowling as fast as we could. The best part games enable you to feel that joy, even if you have never been able to hit the ball beyond the inner circle.
Cricket has a proud tradition and legions of fervent supporters. Yet, it doesnt take much to realize, that cricket has been short-changed in that it has never been given that one defining, life-changing game. You only need to look at the example of soccer games to realize the possibilities that exist in creating the ultimate sports virtual reality. Traditional cricket games have tended to put themselves in either the live-action bucket, or the manager bucket and stuck to perfecting it. Yet, there has been something always amiss. Whether it is the pacing of the game, or the lack of control on the game environment (i.e. composition of teams, ability to play a wider variety of teams, team micro-management), or the fact that cricket being a game of high duration can be taxing to play alone for long periods of time.
Cricket supporters should certainly not settle for a second-grade experience at least not next to soccer, because we as cricket fanatics believe our sport is indeed the best sport. So cricket fanatics, what features would your ultimate cricket game possess? What kind of game would allow us to relive our glory days playing against our friends, making our team the best in the neighborhood, the village, the town, the city, and then the country. And finally, what would a cricket game look like that would give us complete control over our cricket experience yes, a game that is free even from the messianic presence of Lalit Modi.
Cricketers of the world, lets share our thoughts, and get the ball rolling on this cricket revolution.
