Hi guys,

Have posted this on the Vodafone forums but thought I would also post here as someone who is not from Vodafone may be able to give me a clue.

I just bought a HG556a of TradeMe to use with the Vodem down at our warehouse (as we have a home office) and it seems that the K3805-z isn't detected. Is there going to be a firmware revision that allows this USB HSPA Modem to work?

It appears in the advanced main page as a USB mass storage device when we all know what it really is! Do I have to go and buy an E220 or similar to get it to work?

My Software version V100R001C12B028 (which I take to be B028?)

What appears under Port 3 in the USB Section:

Manufacturer: Vodafone
Product: K3805-z
Serial Number: 3EBCC75E30CD7129896D98C37D5C81F444E07401
Device Type: USB Mass Storage Device

Under HSPA Management, I get this message (and there is no SIM PIN):
No detected HSPA modem. Please plug in the HSPA module!


Can anyone help with this? Required fairly soon, going to go VoIP and this will be perfect for our warehouse!

Cheers
Chris

I assume the stick you have is ZTE branded,
the HG556a is a Huawei brand modem (re-branded Vodafone Complete) and only works with the Huawei vodem sticks (maybe someone else can help with which ones are Huawei/ZTE)

I did the same thing when our broadband got shifted, the cheaper vodem with free data was ZTE and I didn't realise till I called Vodafone cause it wouldn't work (and couldn't google why not)




If you have to run heating in winter, you don’t own enough computers.
