to connect my laptop to net.After using it for a week , here is my review.
About the Company- Huawei:
Huawei is a Chinese multinational company engaged in networking and
telecommunications equipment services and it overtook Ericsson in 2012.
Huawei has Research and development units across the world, including in USA,CANADA,
It is operating in more than 140 countries and serves 45 of world's 50 largest telecom operators,
including Vodafone in India.
Huawei Power-Fi E8231 Hot Spot Enabled Data card is a plug and play device.
Just insert into any USB port and it automatically installs the drivers and
takes to its home page [...].Default username is admin and default password is admin.
Once you login with these details , you can go to settings tab and set your account name and password.
You can also change security settings in settings>security;settings>WLAN.
1) It is a Router cum hotspot that can be connected to amaximum of 10 devices simultaneously on WiFi.
2) It works on 2G and 3G networks and also works on 4G network with 3G speed.
3) It is completely factory unlocked and not restricted to any one mobile service provider.
4) You can use SIM from Vodafone or Tata docomo or Airtel or MTNL or BSNL or IDEA etc.
5) Plug n Play operation, just plug into any USB charger to start browsing
6) No need to install any software for configuration - hence operating system independent.
7) Open http://192.168.8.1/ and configure the dongle settings via web browser
8) Good 3G signal strength (dongle shows all 5 bars)
9) Two multi-colour indication lights for status
10) Has the basic features of Wifi routers (MAC filtering, WPS, DHCP settings, IP Filtering, Firewall, Virtual Server etc..)
11) Allows data sharing between laptops via Wifi.
12) check balance from browser itself - biggest advantage while using a limited data plan
Installation and Performance:
I inserted SIM card and plugged into my laptop's USB port (Windows8 OS)and the drivers were installed in a few seconds and then
a local network connection was created apart from creation of WiFi hotspot.
First time users have to login to the system using username admin and password admin
Once you login, you can change username and password , and change default wifi network's name.
There are options to configure the device to connect it to multiple devices
simultaneously(max 10) and to share with multiple users.
You can see WiFi key(default network password) and SSID( default WiFi network name after logging in as admin with password admin.
WiFi key and SSID can be changed.
You can monitor current data usage on home page [...]
and cumulative data usage by clicking on WiFi network name.
The device is working flawlessly and Huawei is a trusted name in networking solutions.
Max speed is 21.1 Mbps but almost all telecom operators are
providing only around 5-6 Mbps speed.
Amazon delivered the product in a neat safe pack.
The pack includes the device, instructions manual, a quick start guide. and warranty card.
You can definitely go for this unlocked product instead of opting for locked( to a specific operator) devices sold by telecom operators.
SIM from any operator can be used in this device.
Visit your mobile operator's shop and exchange your old SIM with a new 4G enabled SIM free of cost and same mobile number,
to get better internet speed.Yes, the net speed depends on your SIM, with new cards giving better speed.
Please hit Yes button if you like my review.
So, its better to go for a 4G enabled dongle now and ensure that it has a 4G only/3G only option in the settings.
Speed also awesome.
Auto connect within in a few seconds.
Supports both SMS & USSD but you can't save USSD code
User Interface is very nice - screenshot attached
Works with any USB type mobile charger or power bank also in computer USB
NO micro SD card slot.
SIM cover is very poor locking/not very tight .automatically open .
But one demerit is there is no selection of Only 3G mode. even 10 per cent network down from 100 per cent it is automatically change to 2G. even if Manual Mode. it is very irritating.
In the config page, go to Settings --> Network Settings. Make sure "Support 3G networks" checkbox is ticked. Change Network Mode to Manual and click Apply. The datacard will now search for all available networks in your area. However, 2G and 3G networks of the same network provider are listed separately. So if you choose the 3G network, in effect you are forcing the 3G-only mode, like before. See attached screenshots.
I am using an Airtel SIM card, and I can see Airtel 3G and Airtel 2G listed separately. So I select Airtel 3G, and that's it. Just note that if you change your SIM card to another network, remember to change the network yourself (since you have set it to manual).
As for the datacard itself, I cannot think of anything major to complain about, and other reviewers have talked about it, so I don't have anything more to add. Definitely the best datacard for under ₹2000.
