  1. This is really nice blog, you are providing very useful information about 3g data card. The main thing about 3g data card is that you can plugged it into you pc and you dont need a mobile phone or any other wireless to stay connected

  2. Thanks for your appreciation. Keeps me powered up to write more.

  3. Hi, i Purchased a Asus 3G Wifi router, but only to realise it does not recognise BSNL 3G card (teracom ).

    Can i connect the router to my laptop and share the internet (from the 3g connect via USB) to another system though the router???

    or any other way to share it?

  4. Excellent post, Suresh! This is very useful.

    Do you know if these WiFi routers will work with Reliance 3G data cards?

    Thanks again.

  5. @kiran Ignatious, If you can share the model no. of your router maybe I can research on it find out more about the device compatibility for you.

    Yes you can share the internet using your router. I'll explain it to you in short. Connect your Modem through USB. Enable Internet sharing on the dialup connection for your modem. Now Connect the LAN cable from your system and plug it into the WAN port of your router. This should work.

    Let me know in case you need any further help and I'll be glad to help you.

  6. @RoveKasparov, Yes these Routers will work with Reliance 3G cards. Make sure about the device compatibility with the router before you purchase. i.e. The Brand and Model of your data card should be compatible with router. You can find some here:

  8. With increasing dependability over the internet, every one is looking for the most reliable Broadband internet connection. Airtel Broadband internet connection is the most preferred internet access solution because it is being offered by Bharti Airtel Limited, undisputed leader of telecom sector. Like other services of Bharti group, Airtel Broadband internet connection also offers many extra features being anticipated by the people who trust our capabilities.

  9. I’m a new reader and have been very impressed with your recent posts and thought to drop a friendly note. It is really a great information about 3G Data Card to Wifi - 3G Router and 3g data card.Waiting for more posts.

  10. @jothimalar, Do you even read the article before posting a comment. I intentionally posted your comment so that I could let other know whats going on. If I am not wrong you are into some SEO business. Your comment on Airtel broadband has nothing to do with the post on 3G routers. Next time read before your comment.

  11. This is very useful blog. i love to read this blog. Thanks for your information.

  12. Dear Mr. Sureshkumar,
    First of all, thank you very much for giving out bits of knowledge we erquire.

    I have tried your method of unlocking my Huawei 1550 Modem (3G enabled). I used the unlock code in place of the flash code in the process for unlocking. It is unlocked and works fine for most of providers like DOCOMO in 2G but does not work with BSNL 3G. But only it shows the blue light and thus can detect the 3G range.

    I have tried the same process twice but for no use. In the second time, the unlock code was not asked even and the process finished successfully.

    Kindly help.
