Default WWAN settings on O2 UK with Vodafone dell mini - 08-24-2009, 09:58 PM

I need help,
I have a Vodafone Dell Mini 9 with built in WWAN running XP (dell outlet)
My son has an O2 sim on simplicity (monthly payment) with the unlimited web bolt on

How do I connect it to the web?
Do we ignore the Vodafone software, download Dell connection manger, insert sim, cross fingers and look for settings? Or is it the wrong sim for the Mini? Any advice appreciated - I keep finding advice on OSX but not XP.
We don't intend using it everyday - but we have a very dull train journey on the horizon - and this might be the best option - to use his sim in the Dell Mini.

I don't have the card so can't help you with setup, but if you can find where to place the settings, they are:

Username: vertigo
Password: password

All other settings as defaults. No proxy server etc. required.

Remember that O2 don't officially allow tethering on that plan, so use it lightly!

Have a look in the vodafone control panel for network settings, you might be able to insert them there in place of the voda ones, if not then try downloading the Dell manager.
