Your Access Point Name (APN) identifies the access point on your provider’s mobile broadband network your modem will use to connect to the internet. There may be some information provided with your USB modem by the mobile broadband operator specifying the APN you should use. You can also check the default settings on the software used to configure the USB modem on your computer.

How do I tell if my IP address is public or private?

Visit the website: WhatIsMyIP.com – it will display the actual internet address you are currently using. If it is the same as the IP address shown on your Dovado, then you have been assigned a public address. Otherwise you have been assigned a private address, which restricts what you can do on the internet.
