[size="3"]Hello - I hope someone that is very patient can help me. I am all new to trying to hook up my new laptop, desktop, and printer. Someone at work tells me I need a router to do this and I told him I am using Alltel Huawei EC168 Wireless Internet card for service. He does a little research and comes up with a Netgear MBR624GU. So I jumped at his advice and ordered it. Well from there on out it gets ugly and very frustrating. (Especially since I'm basically a computer virgin) So I go to install it and get a message "USB not compatible). Sure as s&*t, not listed on the compatibility chart. I had ordered this router through ANTonline.com and of course they wouldn't accept a return since I had opened the box already. So I'm stuck with a brand new $110 router. So from here I start doing a little research myself and it looks like my only options for the Huawei are: Cradlepoint MBR1000 / CTR500 or Cyfre 3G.
Your probably saying "come on lady - get to the point." Ok so my first question is : Is there a way to get the Netgear router work? (Maybe somekind of application or download?) Because Netgear does list a Huawei compatibility for some other country - I was thinking maybe it was like Austrilia.
If the answer to the above question is "NO", then my second question would be which cradlepoint or Cyfre router should I go with next?
I hope someone can find a answer for me, cause I've about had it with all this time involved researching things I know absolutely nothing about.
Thanks alot any help is better than no help. And I can't be any worse off than I already am.
