TG582n using 3G backup


[link to this post]
 
This modem/router has a USB port and the advertising blurb states it's for 3G backup. However there's nothing in the userguide about how to set this up, nor can I find anything on Google.

Has anyone any thoughts or any experience with this?

TIA

The O2 supplies router is preconfigured for the following usb 3G devices:
ZTE_MF627
ZTE_MF100
HUAWEI_E1690
ZTE_MF110
H_E1752Cu
H_E1752Cu_OV

AFAIK the operation is PnP with supported devices but I haven't tried it yet.

If you wish to play with the cli commands for this look under "mobile".
The following cli reference guide for the TG857n v2 (O2 firmware) lists these commands, this should be the same for the TG582.
Download the guide from a link at the bottom of this page:

The configuration procedure is described in the SetupUserGuide.

I probably got this from the Plusnet or Zen websites. Alternatively send me a PM with your email address.

I have not tried to use this facility. I can tether to my mobile in an emergeny.

As I said I haven't tried it, but it is there in the cli commands, it may take some configuring though.

You can check this with the telnet command:

Hello, I'm using TG582n only for 3G, and because of download limits from my ISP, I need to start the connection between 1 and 7 AM, and keep it alive at least until 1 AM of the next day.

Can any one tell me how to configure the router so the connection stays always alive? I tried to increase the "idletime" but that doesn't seems to work.

And can any one tel me what "doddelay" and "idletrigger" are, and if they can make the router disconnect the 3G connection when I'm not using the internet?

I don't know if this is relevant, but I only manage to make my 3G connection work after removing apn=APN from the command "ifconfig intf=umts pin=0000 apn=APN".

tks
