3g with wireless router

  kimtrnc 16:58 09 Jul 09

I live abroad, and ISPs are sparse ( and erratic!)
My 3g is provided by a USB plug in modem, which works reasonably well.

However, I now need to provide internet for someone else in the household, so I purchased a 3g capable router, which I expected to have a USB socket.
It doesn't - only uses the sim card itself.
This would be ok, except the software, on the PC, doesn't acknowledge the router, or get as far as bringing up the pin number screen. The software just sits & sulks while it waits, indefinitely!

Have I bought the wrong sort of router, or is there a way around this prob, please?

The router will almost certainly behave like a conventional router in that it will be the *ROUTER* which connects to the 3G Mobile Network. The computers will then connect to the router for their internet access via either an ethernet cable or "wirelessly". You won't run the 3G Modem software in the computer to establish the connection to the service.
