I've got an Intel Centrino Advanced-N WiMAX 6250 card, and have installed the Intel PROSet/Wireless WiMAX Connection Utility.
Is it possible to use this card to search for non-"ISP" WiMAX networks? I'm in a test lab that's got a WiMAX base station in the next room, and yet the Connection Manager doesn't show anything when it does a "Search for Networks". When I read through the documentation (http://www.intel.com/support/wireless/wmax/5350_5150/sb/CS-029552.htm) it says there should be a "Search for networks (exhaustive)" option under the "Options" tab, but my version only has the ability to select "Preferences" or "Advanced"; neither of which allow an exhaustive search to be done.
Is this a limitation of the 6250 card, or is there something I'm missing about Connection Manager? I've tried using version 2.1, 2.2, and 2.3 but no luck.
Is it something that needs to be configured in the backend?
Any help would be much appreciated.
I've the same issue , I'm using Libya WiMAX & I just bought intel wimax / wifi 6250 half mini card & I downloaded the version of WiMAXconnection utility , i setup the connection & i pressed search for network after finishing search m it doesnot show me any network ( no networks are available to connet)Libya WiMAX uses the following frequencies ( 2505000,2515000,2525000,2535000,2545000) & Libya Wimax network using TTLS Authentication ( username & password ) for identificationPlease tell me if your problem is solvedwith my best regardsMaher AlmagrbiLibya WiMAX user19/12/2010
My laptop is ASUS 1000HG perfectly functioning and also recognises Intel 6250 advanvanced-N+WIMAX (after a little hack in the motherboard....).
In Device Manager : 2 devices are installed correctly ( 2 NICS) and also WIMAX "function-Driver".
Everything looks fine by a hardware viewpoint and also windows says : "This computer is WImax capable....." No problem.
The problem is tha WIMAX Utility 6.5 (now ) does not find any 3.5 GHZ (there is one in my same city).
I used and external rubber 3.5 GHZ antenna connected to the MAIN connector of 6250.
Maybe someone reads this and give me some help ?
Did anyone ever make progress on this?
The answer I got from Intel was that the only way to use the Intel software was if the provider was partnered with Intel.
If you want to scan for custom frequencies, the provider has to write their own software that uses the Intel card.
Neither seem like easy/quick solutions.
