Using Vodafone Station 2 / Sercomm SHG1500 with Australian ISP

Hi,

 

We will soon be moving to Australia and whilst closing our broadband account I was advised we retain the Vodafone Station 2. Would anyone be able to advise if we will be able to use this modem with an Australian (non Vodafone) internet service provider? Would anything need to be unlocked or configured generally before leaving NZ to make this happen?

 

Just weighing up taking it with us vs leaving it here in NZ where it can be used.

 

Thanks in advance for any info.

Hi there, it is unlikely that the modem will work with any other provider. The VCI/VPI settings are hardcoded in the firmware and to my knowledge are not user configurable. Sorry about that.
