    Default BSNL EVDO: "Device unplugged or not inserted properly" error!

    Hello friends

    I have a BSNL EVDO dongle which is giving me about 100kbps approximate download speed when connected. I mostly get 4 bars only and that too after trying to positioning the device in several different ways.
    The problem is that it keeps getting disconnected again and again.
    Before, I used to manually click on the connect button every time this happened, sometimes even wake up in the night to check if its connected or not.
    Thankfully, I read somewhere about using a dial-up connection instead of the BSNL EVDO default dialer and now it redials automatically.
    But even this has its own limitations because after a certain number of attempts, the windows dialer just stops redialling.
    To overcome this issue, I have installed "Advanced Dialer" which 'keeps' it alive (auto-reconnect)!

    But the main issue is that, very often, my BSNL EVDO just stops working and there is a pop-up message: BSNL EVDO: "Device unplugged or not inserted properly" error!
    And all that I can do is click ok (if I dont do that, then also, it just shuts itself down within 5 seconds). Has anybody else faced this problem?

    After that I have to manually unplug the device out (I am using about a foot long USB extension cable) and then reinsert it. Also, I have to do this many times every day before the device becomes stable enough to connect.

    I hope some genius over here can give me proper solution.

    I am on a Samsung Series 5, i7 3rd Gen, 8GB RAM, 2GB nVidia, 1TB, 15.6"

    I had the same problem with my MTNL 3G data card and for solving this issue once and for all I bought a wifi data card and plugged the data card into the router so every time it would disconnect the router would dial the connection on its own and connect once again. This also makes it easier to place the data card at a spot that has better signal regardless of where you use your computer or laptop and this also helps you save some mobile phone data as you can then use wifi while at home.

    You can also go to the dialer settings to see if the dial automatically option is there and is checked if you do not want to go the router way.

    I hope this helps.

    Thanks for the tip Sir.
    But my EVDO error is rectified.
    Immediately after I posted here, I changed the USB extension cable that I was using for my EVDO.
    Ever since that, it hasn't given me any error!!! and the connection speed is stable at around 170kbps and I am happy man!
    Cant imagine I have been using EVDO for the past 3 years like a stupid guy with that faulty USB extension. I should have known better as only my mouse and keyboard work when its attached, none of my HDDs.
    The new one is just a single male/female USB and its longer so I can place it perfectly to get the maximum speed in my room.

    For auto-dial, I am using Advanced Dialer and its doing its job perfectly. My connection has been up constantly since the last 5 days!
