I have a Novatel Mifi 2732 from AT&T and have it connected via usb to my computer, using the Moblink software I am able to send and receive SMS messages.

It seems like the modem drivers install a Local Ethernet Adaptor and all communication goes through this interface. I tried to add the modem in NowSMS, but it could not add it through any of the modem's com ports.

What can I do to use this modem with NowSMS?

Hi John,

If the device is connected via USB, it is likely that there is a virtual COM port associated with it.

To identify the COM port, go into the System applet in the Windows Control Panel, and access “Device Manager”. In the “Ports (COM & LPT)” section, you should hopefully find a reference to this device.

Once you have identified the COM port number, it is possible to add the modem to NowSMS (but not NowSMS Lite) by referencing the COM port number directly.

However, if you use the COM port directly in NowSMS, you won’t be allowed to configure the modem for sending and receiving MMS. It will support SMS only.

The simple way to enable support for sending/receiving MMS is to manually install a Windows Modem driver for this COM port. This can be done through the “Phone & Modem Options” applet in the Windows Control Panel. We recommend that you manually select the modem driver, rather than having Windows detect the modem. For best results, use the “Standard 33600 bps Modem” driver.

After installing this Windows modem driver, configure NowSMS to use the “Standard 33600 bps Modem” to connect with the modem, instead of using the direct COM port reference.
