Normal user privilege problem for using WiMax USB Modem in windows 7

This is my first post from my laptop. From now on I can write from my home. Recently I buy a Dell Core i3 laptop made in china. Please note, I’m from Bangladesh. Here we all enjoy duty free & all kind of tax fee computer peripheral. Thats why we get these technological facilities with cheap rate. Anyway, Its not my issue. After getting laptop I get a connection from our local WiMax service provider Bangla Lion. Their’s modem is USB modem. Its nice after installation and configuration. Problem is for other users of my laptop…

I always like to use computer with normal user rather then administrator user. Here I can impose many restriction for security reason to fight with VIRUS. So, when I login with my another normal user I fail to connect with my provider… I phone them customer support they didn’t get any solution. So, I start R&D for this issue and finally got success for 6 hours. I’m using windows 7 that was with my laptop and off-course pirated copy (thanks MS, really we Bangladeshi techi personnel can’t achieve the latest trend if we don’t get this facilities). So, guys if you face any problem just do following……

  1. Install your modem with administrator account as usual normal installation. Nothing special while installation process.
  2. Now go to the folder where you installed your modem and change security settings
  3. Add your user’s for permit to use modem with read-write permission to that folders & its content’s and sub-folders.
  4. Then go to windows firewall settings and add your modem software permit for both communication of home and public. I know this may cause a security whole if you can’t trust your provider. But if you trust your provider’s software its not a problem at all.

Actually my modem need write permission to that folder. May be some file it modify before starting to program file path. And it can’t write to that path and forbidden to use the modem.

Hope this post will save someone’s 5~6 hours just for 15 mins…. lols
