Very Important Points for Agilent plate form testing
       For new or Used Laptops ALWAYS ALWAYS • Disable or block firewall, security features on the Computers Never ever install any new software on the Laptop except Agilent. After starting the car warm it up for a while then turn on the inverter. Before starting the test check all the cables, specially scanner cable for GPS and Scanner Antenna cables or tight and safe. If you are going to different market, before leaving the base station, always check Dongles key’s License expiration. Take with you any extra laptop, phone, air card, and GPS. Keep the Scanner Bar window open, keeping on comparing Scanner RSSI with Phones RSSI.( Scanner RSSI is > than phones:e.g. -77 > -88) For FTP trouble Shoot, always start from AT Command, Check AT command in the modem advance setting it should be defined For Chicago: AT+CGDCONT=1,”IP”,”isp.cingular”  On Down load or Kit1, check for FTP down load, retrieving massage in sequence window. If it is not there, check, FTP properties again.  On Upload or Kit2, check for FTP upload, storing massage in sequence window If it is not there, check, FTP properties again.    Live Mode: Shift +F4 Start recording: Mode F4 Stop recording: Shift +F9

Agilent Important Commands: AIRCARD and Phones
For USB Configuration: *#197328640# option 9__option 6__option 2 LOCK the phones TO UMTS/GSM/AUTO(To change the phone mode) *#63895# or *#3685247*# To verify the PHONE mode (you can see on the phone screen) *#0011#
In order to prevent data on CS phones

1)Press *#3685247#* 2)Select ''Network & call settings'' 3) Select "Service Domain" 4) Select "CS" 5) Press ''Save``
This way you can verify Central frequency from the phone pad, by locking the phone to UMTS850 or UMTS1900 (In Chicago for UMTS850 it is 4384 and UMTS1900 is 612) (In Montreal, Canada for UMTS850 it is 1087(UMTS V(850 Mhz) and UMTS1900 is 587(UMTS II 1.9Ghz)) AT Command Air CARD Lock up Connect to AIR CARD AT!ENTERCND=”A710” (TO CONNECT TO AIR CARD) To Lock the Air card to UMTS UMTS AUTO 850/1900 AT!GBAND=03FFFFFFF( or Also in 3G Watcher you can check 3G only) UMTS 850 AT!GBAND=04000000 UMTS 1900 AT!GBAND=0800000 To Lock the Air card to GSM GSM AUTO 850/1900 AT!GBAND=03FFFFFFF( or Also in 3G Watcher you can check 2G only) GSM 850 AT!GBAND=0280000 GSM 1900 AT!GBAND=0200000 To verify the Air card locked Mode for GSM/UMTS AT!GBAND? 3 Pervez Durrani RF Engineer GTLAmericas 910-5391026

Winsock Error:
TCP/IP is a set of communications protocol used for the internet and other similar networks. TCP/IP can sometimes get damaged or corrupted, in case you can't connect to the internet and have tried various other methods with no success, most probably corrupted TCP/IP is the reason behind it. As TCP/IP is a core windows component it can't be removed , however , it can be reset/repair to its original state by couple of methods mentioned below. Method 1: 1) Go to Start menu and open command prompt. 2) At the command prompt , copy and paste(or type) the following command and then press ENTER:
netsh int ip reset c:\resetlog.txt

When we run the reset command, it rewrites two registry keys that are used by TCP/IP. This has the same result as removing and reinstalling the protocol. 3) Reboot the computer and you should be all set. Method 2: An easier way is to just click either of these links, start winsock.dll download and then reboot your computer : http://www.online-tech-tips.com/computer-tips/winsock-fix/
