Vodafone Mobile Broadband USB stick & 3G modem backup

Hi there,

Has any one had any experience getting a K5150 modem working as a USB 3G backup on an ADSL/VDSL modem?  I have a Draytek Vigor 2760 which has the capability and supports previous generation KXXXX devices, but unsure of the settings for this model.

 

Usually choose PPP mode and enter vodafone as the APN

Thanks a bunch

Hi @msalisbury

 

The compatibility might unfortunately come down to luck if it's not one of the specifically supported models. However you'll also need a couple of settings. Smiley Happy

 

For starters for APN put in "vodafone"

 

I'll ask if @johnr could please take a look at the other settings you have here, I'm not too familiar with the finer details here. Smiley Happy

 

Cheers

The APN should be ' vodafone ' and compatibility will be the issue here if the USB modem is not on the supported list for that hardware,

That's a tricky one as the only thing we support in there is the APN which is vodafone. No username or password is needed. . We generally only support our vodems on the vodafone modems. If the vodem works directly plugged into a USB port such as your laptop and is working, thats as far as we can support it. As @Dylan has said, it may come down to not being supported.
