Huawei E160G and 3 - Firmware?


[link to this post]
 
Hi folks

Just thought id come here and ask a question..
Now this modem and 3 are fine for my needs and work well in the area im in. But I have a problem with the firmware that was supplied with the modem. I've heard that its a bit buggy, and I experience this when im trying to play World of Warcraft over the modem.

When the modem switches between 3G and HSDPA, it causes wow to disconnect, yet everything else is fine. Three's delightful staff blamed it on the IP changing but i dont believe them

I found a firmware upgrade for the modem which was supposed to fix it, think it was an AU model, but i installed it anyway. The firmware worked and played warcraft for about 30 mins fine smile The next day I found the modem to be dead, no response

So the questions,

Was the modem dieing a coincidence? even though it worked fine after the firmware upgrade.

Is there a UK firmware I could use, or a fix for the problem im getting with the connection switching?

Is there somewhere I can buy another usb modem that will do the same job (ive heard only the e160g suffers from this)

Thanks in advance

Hi dbheyworth

Did you find the Three UK firmware anywhere? I have installed the Huawei firmware but would like to switch back to the 3 UK level.

Anyone out there know where we can get this firmware?

Try looking direct at Huawei?

Also, operator supplied software is notoriously poor. You can download the Mobile Partner flash which is Huawei's vanilla software which they produce themselves and in many cases works much better than that supplied by the network operator!

I have Orange branded E160G. Can I use Huawei's vanilla software,
or do I need to unlock my dongle ?
If so how ?
TIA
