I am trying to find the firmware for the following Cisco 3G card.
Cisco Part # EHWIC-3G-EVDO-V=
I searched for it in Support> Downloads but have not had success thus far in finding the firmware.
I've installed a couple of these and the drivers load from the card. Only issues Ive seen are on 15.X code if licensing isn't setup for IOS.

check out this path:
please double-check if that is the firmware that is compatible for your card before you proceed with copying / pasting the commands below.

you will probably have to change the slot number below (the part that says "0 3" under microcode reload)
- get the file on the router using tftp / ftp / whatever
copy ftp://x.x.x.x/8790_k2_0_7_46.tar flash:
- extract contents of tar
archive tar /xtract flash:8790_k2_0_7_46.tar flash:
- upgrade cell code
microcode reload cellular 0 3 gsm modem-provision flash:FWUpgradeConfigFile.txt
wait about 5-10 minutes and run "show cellular 0/3/0 all" to see the current version.
Another tip: for troubleshooting or whatnot you can't reload a cell card manually. The microcode upgrade reloads the card for you, but under normal circumstances you cannot reload the card (ie. hw-mod reload etc). With a hidden cisco command you can enable this though:
test cellular 0/3/0 modem-power-cycle
just thought you might like to know
When you are done, remove the service internal from the config.
Once I hear back from the customer, I will then be able to mark "Correct Answer". I am almost certain that will be the case.
Anyway, thanks for your very precise and detailed answer.

just a heads up though about the IOS version, I had an issue with running 15.0 and using cellular cards. I was advised by TAC to run 15.1 because I was told it contained a lot of cellular fixes. FYI
