Re: Three dongle - 3g connects 4g doesn't

That's not a bad price for that kit too. I will try some more tests off peak and see what sort of speeds are available.

(Edit: Ah! I see Tim has just clarified its an 8332. I was looking at the 8372.)

Tim and I were talking about the GUI, as shown in his link, except he dropped the "G" and I dropped the "I" LOL. It's called evolving Essex-speak.

AIUI it can connect to a computer port or a router USB "WAN-capable" socket. Acting as either a modem for the router or computer, or modem/router standalone. Depending on how the user sets it up. That GUI, as I said, is modem/router stuff.

Re the WiFi, presumably it's going to work like a mobile phone without the phone parts and associated gubbins such as app stores. My phone happily works as a hotspot when on Mobile Data only, and preserves all its functions and its own internet connection.

I can even USB-tether it to my laptop to keep it charged and turn on the phone's hotspot for other devices to use at the same time.

Presumably yours also does.

It's an E3372.

Works fine on my router in failover mode but couldnt get load balance mode to work.

Ummm frown

*The preceding specifications are theoretical values based on product design. Some features and specifications may vary across markets. To provide accurate product information, specifications, and features, HUAWEI may make real-time adjustments to the preceding specifications, so that they match the product performance, specifications, indexes, and components of the actual product. Product information is subject to such changes and adjustments without notice.
In other words, roughly what came out of the parts bin that was near enough to the spec. Like some cheap computers used to be years ago, and maybe still are.

Basically, quality control is low, and everything can vary by manufacturing plant location.

To me as an IT professional, I will interchange GUI and UI and just "interface" without noticing smile

The dongles only work on non PC devices (e.g. routers) that are specifically developed to host the dongle. There are open source components for this, originally for Linux, that are adapted and used on routers such as the Asus, Netgear, and other makes.

Re the WiFi, presumably it's going to work like a mobile phone without the phone parts and associated gubbins such as app stores. My phone happily works as a hotspot when on Mobile Data only, and preserves all its functions and its own internet connection.
Dramatically simpler, as your mobile phone is a computer running a full OS handling various devices, disk storage, files, permissions, etc.

This is a traditional "embedded device" which has just enough software to handle the cellular side, and create a WiFi hotspot. Embedded devices will have only a few tens of thousands of lines of code, and primarily use dedicated hardware for most functions.

I can even USB-tether it to my laptop to keep it charged and turn on the phone's hotspot for other devices to use at the same time.
Yes, modern mobile OS have sufficient general purpose application processors (e.g. the Qualcomm Snapdragon in your OnePlus) that can do this. Exactly the same as an Intel or AMD in a PC/Laptop. This is not an embedded device level, this is generic software and a complex operating system of hundreds of thousands of lines of code.

Not necessarily.

More likely this is #include <disclaimer> which means if they make a change and forget to update the documentation, you can't sue.

This is interesting. It's called Huwimanage and may work with the Huawei router.
