I purchased an EDUP 11N 3G Router EP-9501N to allow me to share my Seirra Wireless XT 3G modem with another laptop and IPad. The 3G card is plugged into the router and I can easily connect to the other laptop and IPad but it does not connect the router to the internet.

I actullay do not understand how it could as when you plug the 3G Card into the laptop you need to open the application on the laptop to connect to the internet.   The router does not have the same funtionality to allow this to happen.

What am I missing here. The 3G router has a money back guarantee fortunately in case it is not possible.

Are you sure you bought a 850 MHz WCDMA version?

3G routers don't need the application you are used to in your PC because they already have similar functionatlity built-in.

Providing this is the correct version (again 850 MHz WCDMA), then you need to login to the router, go to its configuration pages and find where to add the correct APN (internet.telecom.co.nz) to it.

The specifications will tell you. If it's not a 850 MHz WCDMA version it will not work on XT.

Why would the 3G router care what frequency the 3G modem uses?

Skolink: Why would the 3G router care what frequency the 3G modem uses?


Only if it was an internal modem. I see this one uses an external USB modem, so it doesn't really matter.
What you have to do now is connect to the administration interface and find the modem configuration where you have to enter the correct APN to use. With Telecom NZ you must use "internet.telecom.co.nz".

You'll also need to establish if it is compatible with a Sierra Wireless modem. Not all 3G sticks will work with every router as specific support is required.

Now my 3G card is not working, seems to have lost some settings. Luckily I have two. Might be right about not being compatible. A bit of work to do now.

It is a USB 306. Any idea how I can reset to Telecom the standard Telecom profile?

If you have the software installed on a PC you should be able to open it, and change the configuration there. Check that the correct APN is the one in use.

Attached are screen shots form the device. I think it is the same as it was before I plugged into the 3G router and the APN appears correct. Can you see anything wrong? Not sure if I have uploaded correctly??

You probably uploaded, but you have to insert the images. Open your gallery (http://www.geekzone.co.nz/gallery.asp). Edit the post, and use the image button to insert the images.
