The 2degrees one misses the 850 frequency you'd want for xt. So does the Vodafone miff thing

davidcole: Hi

Looking for a 3g Wireless router/AP that I can take with me on the train with my Telecom prepay sim in it.

I've heard of the Huawei e5838 - which has the necessary frequencies, and assume there might be some others.

Anyone know of others, and where I can get one from?? Devices for the vodafone network seem pretty commonplace but not xt.



Were you talking about this?

this one from 2degrees

I think that huawei is for XT.


After all this time around you still misses the point that THE DEVICE MUST SUPPORT 850MHz WCDMA AND THIS MODEL DOES NOT, SO IT WON'T WORK ON XT.

Yep

And it looks like it's one of these, but with a Z at the end (new Zealand anyone) rather than a B (Bigpond anyone?).

Checking out the netcomm site, this one looks pretty good for a portalbe XT compaible one that has a battery, but it doesn't do HSPA+.  But IMHO that wouldn't be an issue for most poeple.
