Web n Walk Stick

by Marin Franković on 20 October, 2008

I am using T-Mobile (Croatia) Web n Walk stick to access internet and my corporate network from various locations when I am not in Zagreb. This week I am in Split and when I tried to install it on my laptop it failed to do so. Why there are NO 64 bit drivers on the stick, only 32 bit I will never know. And of course, the stick does not work.

My assumption was that 64 bit operating systems are so widely spread now that 64 bit drivers would for be on the stick. Well, since I did not have any other means of getting drivers I had to connect using my mobile phone. God knows what bill will I get next month (update: 350 kn). 🙂 And 3G coverage is very poor at my location, so mostly I surf using Edge.

Anyhow, you can download 64 bit drivers for T-Mobile Web n Walk Stick here (ZIP file 4 MB). Install drivers first and then plug in your USB stick. Happy surfing.

UPDATE: I can confirm that this driver works with Windows 7 64 bit version also.

Hi Antonio, I have Windows 7 RC x64 and it works perfectly. I have both Web n Walk applications installed, old and new one.

Zero point. I have Win Vista SP1 x64, and the stick isn’t working with this wnw_SW_za_64-bit_Windows.zip driver.

@Marg Cerise,

Doesn’t work on windows-7 64 Bit for me, T-Mobile (Netherlands) help desk, technical service and the store don’t do shit for you.
There NOT going to make a update and there still selling old sticks while Windows 7 is now standard on desktops and laptops in the store. Even a guy told me to go back to win XP, sure :). Contract for two years……. Arg. Cant register Kaspersky Anti-Virus and play (register) Modern Warfare 2 on my desktop for fuck sake, thanks T-mobile, for nothing.
So in the future i cant put my stick any computer that runs win7 or 64 BIT ?, OH I can buy the new stick, that will work on windows 7 (so they say, info not on package or website) for 60 euro, or pay for a year extra, 3 years???… no thanks for the moment.

Hi,
Thanks so much for sorting this all out!
I got a new Laptop with Windows 7 64 bits running and a web’n’walk stick (iCON 225). According to T-Mobile Netherlands “the software is not suitable for windows 7″ (their reply in Dutch: Helaas is de software van de oudere T-Mobile web’n’walk stick niet geschikt voor het Windows 7 besturingssysteem. Wij vertrouwen erop u hiermee voldoende te hebben geïnformeerd.” And that’s it, no excuse or alternative. Anyway, the drivers from the option site work (legacy mode), I get a connection but I cannot load webpages or use the internet. According to the Option site this is a DNS problem (http://www.option.com/en/support/knowledge-base/article/active-connection-but-not-possible-to-open-webpages) and they give this advice ” In case you can set-up a GPRS/UMTS connection but cannot open a webpage you probably have to add or edit your DNS settings.
Check the connection settings in the Application software. Here you can enter or edit the DNS settings for you GPRS connection. Check with your GSM/GPRS/UMTS network provider for the correct settings. ”
I’m not an expert at all, and really have no idea where to edit the DNS settings. Which application? I have a guess for primary DNS (193.79.237.39) and secondary (193.79.242.39), or is that nonsense? But where do I enter that?
Help is appreciated, as T-mobile doesn’t care.
Thanks!

echt van die mensen die denken dat alles gratis is he…ongelofelijk. denk je dat t-mobile of andere bedrijven windows eerder krijgen dan jullie? en je verwacht dat er meteen updates komen e.d.?

je betaalt verdomme wat…20 euro in de maand? de klantenservice van t-mobile is gratis(1 van de redenen dat ik voor t-mobile koos) voor die 20 euro heb je een hogere datalimiet en soms krijg je er zelfs een laptopje bij???? waar moet het geld dan verdiend worden als we zoveel eisen?

sukkels

ANEMO-ONE December 4, 2009 at 13:08

De software makers hebben dus wel de update (al een jaar ofzo), t-mobile is te lui om mensen die update aan te bieden of wel er voor te betalen (zit al in hun nieuwe sticks), hoeveel is 20 euro maal het aantal mensen op de wereld met z’n stick (windows 7, hebben ze nooit van gehoord, sure). Ik ben al 17 jaar klant van t-mobile, wat heb ik aan gratis klantenservice als ze me niet serieus nemen. Ja laptopje ja, betaal je gewoon voor. Schelden op internet moet je niet doen joh, nekschot.

Cheers! It worked for me.
Using T-Mobile Netherlands Web’n’walk Stick on Windows 7 professional 64 bit, Dutch version.
You would expect T-Mobile to behave pro-active. Windows 7 was not unexpected, but announced long time ago to software developers to enable them to develop new or adapt current applications.
Lack of 64-bit for their software tells me that they take pro-users seriously. I am convinced that 64-bit software will be widely spread soon, since it allows for bigger memory configurations necessary to run the latest programs.

Wat ben ik toch blij met mensen die dit soort info delen.

Na eerst een gefrustreerd gesprek met de helpdesk die NIETS voor een trouwe klant kan doen behalve in herhaling vallen dat ik gewoon een nieuwe stick moet kopen (het moet niet gekker worden! het is immers niet mijn probleem). Heb ik hier de GRATIS oplossing gevonden.

Mijn dank is GROOT! En ik ga tevens opzoek naar een betere aanbieder die wat meer respect heeft voor haar klanten. Want wat heb ik aan een gratis helpdesk die een draaiboek afraffelen… Jawel.. NiETS!
