O2 Mobile Broadband Dongle Connection Manager Woe

O2 sucks with my Huawei E160 yada yada. The O2 Connection Manager software just would not connect this morning, with a "Failed To Connect" and "Check your network coverage and user profile" error.

This may be cargo cultish but the solution I found was to:

- Uninstall O2 Connection Manager
- Delete the Cellular Profile from Control Manager / Network Connections
- Restart the machine
- Reinstall O2 Connection Manager by plugging in the dongle
- MOST IMPORTANTLY: Run this patch

Only then did it work again.
If I helped you out today, you can buy me a beer below. Cheers!
