Zain eGo driver for Mac


Turns out Zain is not so "Zain" after all.

A lot of Mac users have complained that the built-in Mac support on their new Zain eGo HSPA/UMTS stick (Huawei E180) doesn't work and when they contact Zain support they tell them to take their Mac to some store to install the driver, not for free of course.

I managed to find the driver for Mac on an Italian site and they claim it works for all carriers though citation needed and feedback on whether if it's working or not is very welcome.

The file ".sitx" is hosted on Rapidshare, it might get removed without notice. If it's no longer available contact me and I will send it by email.

JIM:
Bikes? No thanks. Got anything for Z33?


bashar:
True on that. :/


Princess Famme:

inoor:
That came with the old eGO.. right?
Cuz the new one should have everything built-in but somehow they made it exclusive to that store and they charge money for it too.
Be my guest, download the file and host it then send over the link and I will update the post. Thanks in advance.


navy g:
Wataniya here as well... though they all suck, no exceptions.


linus:
Depends on what you'll be using it for...

MacBook: Smaller, lighter, slower... Good for browsing, music, videos, and light tasks.

MacBook Pro: Larger, Heavier, Much Faster... Good for everything including heavy tasks such as video editing, complicated graphic design and multi-tasking.

My opinion... Get MacBook Pro so you don't feel left out.

Hi there

I was searching for a solution to my problem through Kuwait blogs and I find yours :)

Thank you.
