Since day one of releasing Zain’s E-GO 21.6 Mb/s, I was worried about sharing the high speed internet with other computers, and from that day I began to search for a router that is compatible with the 21.6 e-go but the result was a big ZERO, because non of the big brands started to develop a router that can handle that kind of speed, yet.

Easter 2010

I will be spending the week after the Easter weekend in Ireland and will therefore be fulfilling orders from the Commsoft office in Tuamgraney, Co. Clare between Tuesday 6 April and Friday 9 April. In terms of delivery times, this will only really impact on customers in the UK, who will receive their goods within 2-5 working days as opposed to the usual 1-2 working days.

Normal service will be resumed on Monday 12 April 2010.

The Limitations of Mobile Broadband Services in the UK

This article was written for us by

Dovado UMR connects without any APN. How can this be?

Hopefully you can help me solve a puzzle. Here we see the Dovado UMR with an O2 UK Pay As You Go USB modem (Huawei E160). The UMR has been reset to its factory settings, so there is no Access Point Name (APN) configured. However not a problem apparently and the modem successfully connects to the O2 mobile broadband network.

Maybe this is not so unusual, can you explain it?
