Anyone got one of these devices and what is your impression of it??

I downloaded the user gude but not much info on how to set it up .  The only security seems to be WEP, no mention of WPA /WPA2. Can you login and change the SSID and security or is this thing a hack waiting to happen??

Thanx in advance..

Hi Old3eyes,

The Huwawei hotspot can be customized for wpa2 and you can change the SSID.

To do this,

Connect your hotspot to a compatible device.
On your device's web browser, navigate to 
The username and password are both "admin"

You should now see a range of tabs where you can customize the device.
