    Datacardmonitor is the program which looks out for a mobile broadband dongle being connected to one of your computer's USB ports. It then launches the connection manager program so you can connect to the internet via mobile broadband...simples :jiggy:

    I have Virgin Mobile Broadband which uses Huawei Technologies Co hardware in the dongle. I know that Vodafone use the same hardware and so the datacardmonitor will be there for them as well. I dont know about other networks, although they probably use the same as well.

    Hope this helps :p:
