    Huawei 173 modem stopped working after windows 10 upgrade


    My Huawei modem was working perfectly on windows 8.1, but after I upgraded to windows 10, my system wouldn't detect the modem, even though the led lights comes on.

    I'll appreciate a kind solution.

    Hi, can you try it with the driver version you used in Win 8.1?

    This thread may help- it refers to your modem. There may be some difficulty in obtaining drivers- I've not read it thoroughly.

    Note if you want to keep that older driver from being updated, you will need to protect it.
