Huawei 4G router – what a cool bit of kit!

If you live in an area that has slow cabled internet BUT a 4G mobile phone signal – this could be for you.
I have recently had the pleasure of installing one of these beauties!

Who’s it for?
Well if you live in either an area with poor quality adsl or simply want a more flexible solution.

What’s included?
You get a 4G router that has wifi, 4 ethernet ports and a phone port.

What do I need?
You will need a sim card from a 4G operator – at present are offering a 100Gb deal for 20€ per month, phone calls included!

How do i set it up?
Simply insert the micro sim card, plug it in and then connect by either wifi or cabled device. Log into the web interface and the 1st option will be enter the sim card lock number and disable this lock. That’s it!
To benefit from the included sim card phone calls, just plug a standard phone into the router and start making calls.
