Smartbro Plug-it for 3G Broadband Router (EDIMAX 3G-6200n)

I bought this router in OCTAGON store in SM City, Iloilo with a price of 2,600PHP.  It's bundled with manual, an ethernet cable, wifi antenna, 3g broadband usb cable, 3G broadband router, 12V power adapter, holding base and the installation CD-ROM.

FYI.  This instruction is for wireless connection of SMARTBRO Plug-it.  For other 3G broadband plug-it, just continue reading, if this might help.  I'm not a tech support of any kind or even an IT graduate.  Just did this on my own.

The included CD-ROM is a quick installation wizard for your router.  Just insert the CD-ROM and RUN the EZMAX.EXE file.  Choose the language you are prefer to and just follow the instructions.  When using a smartbro plug-it be sure to change the number for *99#.  Don't put any username, password or pin code and just leave it the blank spaces, all blank. Just changing the one, asking for a no. (i forgot the exact digits on it, but it has 777 and characters).  Rememeber to change it to *99#.  :) Voila! You will be connected right away.

In modifying the name of the router.  You can change the name from the default name SIID by placing your desired name in the MODIFY blank space.  For your wireless security, just enable your WPA Pre-Share Key and put your preferred password for it.  Apply it all and then EXIT.

I highly recommended that you must upgrade its firmware to the latest one.  Visit their website for the updated firmware, if in case, what I've written here won't work out.  Choose Version v2.20.  Here's the link:   http://www.edimax.com/en/support_detail.php?pd_id=312&pl1_id=3
