Share your broadband.

If you want wireless broadband that you can share but you don't have a landline, you need this wireless router and a 3 Huawei Mobile Broadband USB Dongle.

It is as easy as plugging your 3 Mobile Broadband dongle into the router and you've got access to the internet that you can share with wi-fi enabled devices such as a PC, Mac or laptop. You can even connect more than one computer at a time, using just one dongle.

Why choose 3 Huawei Mobile Broadband USB Dongle

No cost or hassle of a land line
No installation costs
Just plug in and connect
Wireless router - no wires required

Great post, voted hot. Does anyone know if this offer is in store too, or just online?

I'd like to get a black one to match my dongle, but it doesn't look as if you get specify or choose a colour on the CPW website.

hi could this work with ps3?wii?xbox 360?:thumbsup:

I wonder if it would work with Vodafone mobile broadband ? - i have a Huawei dongle with that.

sounds like a great idea...doubt t would be fast enough for PS3 online gaming but a good idea.

I don't need one, but I do want one :(

If you use this are you locked to the Three network or can you use it with an unlocked dongle on any network ?
#13
its bad for gaming as the latency is bad on mobile bb

Is it the router that is locked to Three, or is it locked because your dongle is locked? i.e. if you have an unlocked dongle on another network, can you use the router?

Thank you in advance for any help you can give with these questions!

Any Ideas?

Has anyone tried this to use the wifi for VOIP?

In an area of very strong coverage, would the calls carried as data be acceptable?
#20
I'm on 3 mobile and they recently went to 7.2MB in my area, in real terms I'm actually getting upto 380kbps download speed, a major improvement from 4 -5 months ago when I was getting 40kbps, no idea what the ping is as I don't game

This looks great for me as I have 10 months left on a 3 broadband contract, didn't even know these things existed!

Looks like it's only compatible with a Huawei dongle from 3 though:
http://www.mobileshop.com/blog/mobile-broadband-news/mobile-broadband-evolves-with-the-3-wireless-router/

@ibiza: I don't think 3 block VOIP data so that would be fine

BTW looking around this seems to be called a D100 modem

For people that have Macs, you can set your mac up to act like a router as well, so you won't need an item like this.

I'm fed up with three mobille broadband. I live in the centre of Southampton and have terrible problems recieving a decent connection whereever I go.

The connection seems to constantly change from HSDPA to 3G all the time and I get speeds of 0k/s to 5k/s with major hanging.

I solved the problem by using phone instead of a dongle. This way I had a vanilla 3G connection and although slow I was able to maintain a constant speed and am using the connection to post this message.

I still have the occasional problem though.

Would be great if anyone can check that. I have vodafone so won't go for 3, but would like this as a router for vodafone connection

Surely Mac users may need this device just as much as Windows users might - the point of it is to allow multiple computers to share a 3G internet connecton without having to have one of them switched on all the time.

I've had one of these for 9 months or so, very good, for me, enabled me to get service in areas where signal weak - streaming TV on Zattoo.com hit and miss but for general usage fantastic! Feel the Heat!
#27
Does this router create a true wifi signal or is it Ad-Hoc ?

Portable internet tablets like the Archos 5 do not connect to ad-hoc wifi connections.
#28
If you do not have a 3 modem then there are 3g broadband modems which do this job for any carrier - have a look at the Edimax 3G-6200Wg Wireless-G 3G router. Its more expensive and bigger - but it will work with others.
#29
This might be a cheap deal compared to RRP. But in my experience the 3 mobile broadband service is horrendous. Buying this is like buying a router for a 56k dialup, you just wouldn't do it!

I've been using WMWifiRouter on a Windows Mobile device for years to share my 3G/UMTS connection.

It was a godsend when I was abroad for 4 weeks and couldn't get a signal for any mobile network on the ground floor. I could get signal on the first floor in one room only, so I ran WMWifiRouter on my phone (WIndows Mobile) on the first floor, and I was able to use the phones connection to access the web on my laptop on the ground floor.

I can't recommend this piece of software enough.

For people that have Macs, you can set your mac up to act like a router as well, so you won't need an item like this.

While you can set up a wifi network on a Mac, it only supports 40 / 128bit WEP, which can be cracked in a matter of minutes. Until Apple support WPA/2, you shouldn't use this on a permanent basis, if at all.

I own one of these D100 routers and a Huawei E169G modem with Three, so I signed up to HUKD to share these with you:

- You can only use a Huawei modem with the D100, as it's made by Huawei.
- The firmware is Three-branded, and there don't seem to be any alternative generic products to extract firmware from to 'play' with (though OpenWRT have been looking at it). There are settings to change APN etc., but after changing these for other networks, the router still will not recognise a locked modem for another network (tested this with a Vodafone-locked Huawei E220). Basically, these are only for Three - unless you happen to have an unlocked Huawei modem, in which case YMMV (but why would you? they're crap).
- If you get a good speed via Three when directly connected you will get a similar speed via the D100. It won't give you a speed boost.
- It sets up a standard encrypted (WPA2) wifi (B/G) network to which anyone can connect, as well as a basic firewall and a few other simple features. It is simplistic when put next to a modern draft-N router.
- Everything that works when directly connected works via the router.
- It works fine with both PS3 and X360 for basic services. For games though, the latency is far too high. Lag makes it completely unplayable. If you're wanting to play games, forget it.

tl;dr - if you have a Huawei modem from Three, you find the speed acceptable in your area, and want a wifi network, this is a cheap way of doing it. If you don't have the requirements, look elsewhere - it will save you a lot of time and effort. Check the alternatives in the thread - e.g. the Fonera2 router would be more successful (dongle support: http://wiki.fon.com/wiki/3G_compatibility).

If there are other questions I'll try to answer them.

Thanks to the failure of my Tiscali Broadband - yet again - this device and my dongle have allowed me to keep working.

Have to say so long as you accept that mobile broadband is never as fast as fixed line - it works great !

For £34 worth the money and great when traveling to avoid hotel broadband bills !
#34
Definately useless on other networks, if I remove the O2 SIM from my E160 Dongle it says SIM not found, if I put the SIM back in it says No USB Device Found. So it is locked to 3. :(

Shame, time to send it back.
#35
OK a bit late but finally a way to unlock this router (I bought it in hope and never returned it) :)

http://3g-modem.wetpaint.com/page/Huawei+D100%2C+D100T

I used (firmware version 396.11.00.09.108 01-JUNE-2009, unbranded and unlocked)

I now am typing this connected to the Huawei D100 Router purchased through this thread and the Huawei E160 O2 USB dongle from another recent thread.

YEAHAW!
