I found this little piece of software in an article at golem.de about the ash cloud from Island. Funny hah ? 😉
But this software is so great that I have to write about it. What is it ? The website says it´s a Freeware Access Tool for mobile Internet. And it´s a software tool that supports numerous GPRS / EDGE / UMTS modems (USB, PCMCIA, PC-CARD, etc.) and a bunch of mobile net providers all over the world. Especially when you´re abroad and don´t want to spend millions for international (data) roaming you can just buy a prepaid sim, insert it into your (sim- & netlock free) modem, select the appropriate profile in MWCONN and there you go – happy surfing.
It´s also very helpful if you need to use more than one data modem. You can create a separate profile for every device and then simply select the one you need.
The tool also allows a nearly endless configuration of everything and supports Windows and Linux. Admittedly the graphical interface of the tool is not the most beautiful and you may need some time before you know how to handle it. But then it provides great functionality, anywhere in the world. They also have a Wiki where you can check if your modem is compatible with the software.
