Bigpond 7.2 3G wireless USB modem

Hi I'm using an old USB wireless 7.2 on an old computer which runs on XP,

Now I changed to a newer computer with windows 7 and downloaded a new software version 2.13.16 for my 7.2 wireless,

But it still says software installation required, Help urgently needed thanks

Was this helpful?

  • Yes it was, thank you
  • No, I still need help

Going from (dodgy) memory I suspect that was either the first supported version or last unsupported version of the connection manager for Windows 7, can't remember which but either way it's an old version now.


Go here and download the latest version of the Connection Manager for your computer, depending on the device you have it will either be 2.19 or 3.6
