A while ago I wrote about my experiences with unlocking a Three Data Modem; recently I picked up a Edimax 3G-6210n GPRS USB Modem to Wi-Fi (and wired) router, I plan to use this at Medieval Siege Society events, and while away with the car (it has an internal battery :D).
Setting the box up is easy; the instruction manual is well laid out and can answer all questions you need. my wifi is set up with WPA2 PSK, and a nice pass phrase; the settings for the o2 GPRS are as follows:
- APN/Access point: mobile.o2.co.uk
- Username: mobileweb
- Password: password
- Session type: Continuous / permanent
- Authentication: Normal
- Security: Off
- DNS Servers: 126.96.36.199 and 188.8.131.52
Note: The “Mobile Web” service must be enabled on your contract for these settings to work.
There are a number of other user names that should work; including faster; (with the same password). Other networks settings can be found here.
