Ccu-680 Drivers Mac Drivers

This is for Mac users with a CAT CDMA connection and the CCU-680 USB stick.

I had two problems with the CCU-680 driver I got from CAT CDMA:

1 - Connecting would not work the firs time, I had to try a few times

2 - The "Franklin Modem Status" application was leaking quite a bit of memory. Example: This morning, after 14 hours of use, Franklin Modem Status was using 350MB of physical memory. The longer you let it run, the more memory it eats.

So I decided to look for more recent drivers and found this:

Scroll all the way to the bottom for a download link for the latest Mac drivers for the CCU-680 (don't bother with the rest of the page). This has a link to version 1.6.0 - the one I got from CAT was 1.2.8. Installs without problem on top of the older version.

enjoy.. :o

PS: I still even with the new version have the problem that the connection is initially slow - not sure what that's all about. I usually test it, and when it's slow, disconnect and reconnect, and it's fast. Maybe it would "ramp up" over time, not sure.

I am using a MC727, on an iMac ( 10.5.5 ) the only way I can get the MC727 to connect is by first clicking disconnect in the Mac system Preferences , then remove the MC727 from the USB port and shut down the iMac, on re booting I have to let the system fully boot up, then insert the MC727 into '' The Same '' USB port then click connect on the Mac system Preferences and it connects every time, If I forget to remove the MC727 after shutting down the iMac and then re boot up with the MC727 still plugged into the USB port, it will not connect, as for memory , I can't see a problem . do you have an on screen signal status box displaying your signal strength when the CCU-680 is connected ?

sorry I can't help more, may be post something here..

Yeah, I have on screen status of singal strength.

Everything is fine with the new drivers. They just work. Franklin Modem Status still seems to leak but I just quit it from Activity Monitor (in Applications/Utilities). No need to force quit it, just quit works.
