Worldwide Internet access.

Overview

launch2net Premium lets you get online quickly, and reliably. If you use a USB modem or Internet stick for your mobile Internet access, launch2net Premium is the perfect tool to get you online all over the world. Quick and Easy.

Hassle free connections. This software will detect the mobile network you are using and selects the right connection settings automatically. You do will not have to search for cryptic information like APN names or DNS addresses.

Save hundreds of monetary units. If you are travelling abroad and you are using the SIM card from your home network to access the Internet, the roaming costs can sum up to thousands of Dollars or Euros. With launch2net Premium you can use local data connections for a fraction of these costs. Just get a local prepaid SIM card and let launch2net Premium figure out the connection details.

Control your connections. Set up a time or data limit. And launch2net Premium will display a warning and/or disconnect when the limit has been reached. This comes in handy if your data plan includes a time or volume restriction.

Review your connections. launch2net Premium offers a comprehensive statistics with a detailed view on every connection. Time and data throughput, SIM card used, and much more.

Connect your iOS devices. launch2net Premium can share the mobile Internet connection with your iOS devices by creating a mobile WiFi hotspot. Your iOS devices just have to log into this WiFi network. This feature is not supported in OS 10.8

Get your message out. Send, receive and manage SMS text messages using the powerful SMS text message manager supports multipart and multigroup messages and is linked to the address book of Mac OS X.

I am using it with a USB stick and a China Unicom prepaid SIM. It works flawlessly all over China (I travel quite a bit). launch2net opens as soon as you insert the USB stick, recognizes the available network, its strength without fail and connects in a wiffy. The connections are stable, transparent and - thanks to China Unicom - fast. The price may be high, however, considering the herculanean task of keeping up with worldwide settings of worldwide telecoms everywhere, the price appears to me as being rather adequate. I have been using it for many years and I am rather satisfied.

Spent a lot of time wondering about updating problems on my system: I had problems using some updaters, including Mac OS X Updates. Update ran through, but still gave me an update error message. Then the same problems with Xcode updates. Next was Little snitch with update problems. For god's sake they pointed me in the right direction: Open the Terminal and try this: sudo kextcache -v 6 -update-volume / If it stops with an error "Prelink failed for com.sierrawireless.driver.SierraDIPSupport; aborting prelink." it is launch2net fault. And still not corrected in latest version as well. --> So *deinstall* this overpriced piece of software and run the temrinal command again. All fine. And all updates needing a kernel chache cleanup will work now as well, Xcode, Mac OS X updates etc.

Hello, can you please send us a bug report to mac@novamedia.de ? Which surfstick or modem did you use? In most cases, customers with stability issues on their Macs use more than one connection manager and therefore different USB kernel extensions for one modem. This will lead to errors. Please uninstall other connectione managers and USB kernel extensions for a first help.

Follow the advice of the Developer! I had issues when using a stick whilst on SL on my MBP....I had x3 of the local SP sim cards ( Vodacom, MTN, CellC) for best signal in the area at the time, as I more around a fair bit.....construction Industry. Because of conflict issues,I deleted all the connection managers and bought this app, and never looked back. I still on occasions use x2 different sticks without any hassle. As in my previous post, there was an issue for a local SP....mailed developer...sorted, and very promptly too! Only issue is if I don't disconnect before removing the stick ...it then requires you to click on 'connect' as opposed to auto connect the next time......sometimes a force quit needed, then reconnects automatically.

Very happy with this, a Great app, I use it daily, responsive developers. Had one of our local SP's sim's not working too well....mailed developers ...quickly fixed. Perhaps a little pricy, but I'd rather pay more for something which works well than cheap mediocrity.

G'Day, ever since I bought l2n I've been pretty happy with it - except for the occasional hang-up on start. Everything worked fine with the last release before Mountain Lion, I switched from my old 3G stick no a new LTE/4G stick (Huawai K5005) - see how fast mobile internet can be :-) Today, in preparation for the Mountain Lion installation, I updated my launch2net Premium for ML-compatibility.. that's where everything fell apart.. now my LTE stick won't work and I get an error 'Device initialization error'. That's a mess because, most of my days, I'm working on the road. Thanks in advance for your support!

Hi, please make sure you updated to version 2.6.1. The 2.6 version had a bug which made it impossible to recognize some sticks. So perhaps that was the error you encountered. Please report to us if this helps and which stick you are using. Write to info@novamedia.de

Hi, thanks for your fast reply - I also send you a ticket via your developer page, same content as above. I encountered the problem in 2.6.1 on a MBAir 2011 - had to uninstall and reinstall 2.5.1 to stay online (for 30minutes.. now my activation key does not work anymore) and I had to push back the ML installation until a solution is available with l2n.

SierraDIPService.kext this software installs is a trouble maker on my machine as well (even disturbed a OSX update). After trashing it, things are fine again.

Hello, thank you for your comment. launch2net Premium works fine with OS X 10.7. The X220D seems to be a modem from Alcatel, which is not supported. We have a list of supported modems on the website for launch2net Premum. The MF190 from ZTE is supported. The reason why it is not detected in your Mac by launch2net Premium might be that you already installed another driver or the software that came with the modem. And their driver blocks access for launch2net Premium for the modem. Either contact us at mac@novamedia.de for help. Or use the deinstaller that came with the ZTE190 to completely uninstall the software - including the USB kernel extensions which had been installed by this software. Then just install launch2net Premium again and it will work fine. Kind regards Jan Fuellemann

When I used a 3g card launch2net made connections easily without regard to which carrier I had to use at the time. It was software I could easily deploy to users who weren't as tech-savvy as others and they could get their work done easily and quickly. On the few occasions where I had to get support my requests were promptly (within 24h) answered and the recommended changes worked. I recommend launch2net Premium without reservations! It is especially a good deal when it is offered on mupromo.
