MMX352G DRIVER

Micromax MMX 352G is a very good plug and play 3G USB Modem and can give upto 7.2 mbps downlink. The modem supports the Operating Systems
  • Windows 7/Vista/XP           
  • Linux Ubuntu 9.10, 10.04
  • Mac OSX 10.6 (Intel system only)
But with the release of Windows 8, the upgraded Windows users are facing some problems with this modem. The modem Micromax MMX 352G is not working on Windows 8 due to its incompatibility. The modem drivers are not installed on Windows 8. But don't worry, because I am going to share a trick with you by which you can use your MMX 352G 3G USB Modem on your Windows 8 or Windows8.1 PC.

[UPDATE]
This trick also works with other models of Micromax 3G USB Modems:
Micromax MMX 353G
Micromax MMX 355G
Micromax MMX 377G
Micromax MMX 144F and more...

STEPS

To install the Micromax 352G Modem Drivers in your Windows 8 PC, please follow the steps given below:
  • Connect the modem to your PC.
  • Open the folder containing the installation files.
  • Save the settings for ShowModem.exe and Modem_installation to run in compatibility mode with Windows 7. (You can do this by right clicking on each of the files and selecting Troubleshoot Compatibility)
troubleshoot compatibility
Troubleshoot Compatibility
  • Now run ShowModem.exe and install the drivers.
  • After the  installation, restart your PC.
  • Connect the modem to your PC and run MMX352G 3G USB manager and it will show ‘No Device’. But don’t worry, the original trick starts from here!
  • Now open Control Panel >> Device Manager, then under Other Devices, just uninstall all the drivers related to the modem.
  • After that go to Action menu and click on ‘Scan for hardware changes’, then Windows 8 will automatically scan for the changes took place in the hardware and it will be automatically updated. (NOTE: The drivers you uninstalled in the previous step will not be shown under Other Devices after this step also.)
Device Manager
Device Manager
  • Now run the MMX352G 3G USB manager installed in your PC, it will definitely work this time.
  • Then connect to internet using your MMX 352G USB Modem and enjoy!
The above trick will work on all the editions of Windows 8 or 8.1 (Windows 8 Pro/ Enterprise/RT 32bit & 64bit) and may also work for MMX 353G model.

    1. It is the fault of internet connection or your internet settings, not of the drivers.

  36. I have done the same ... still not working in my system ... Windows 8.1 64 bit.
    When I restart Again and open Autoplay it automatically start to install again.
    Any solution Sir ........ ?????

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. Yes, there is a solution. You start the modem drivers from the icon on your desktop. And disable 'Autoplay' on your system because it may harm your PC, if you insert any infected pendrive (this is for your knowledge purpose only!).
