Creating an Hotspot with a 3G/4G USB dongle

With My Wi-Fi service you can create a hotspot even if you do not have an ADSL connection.

If the place where you want to create the hotspot is covered by 3G/4G network (UMTS) , to create the hotspot you can use a wireless router with OpenWRT firmware and USB port (eg TP-Link 1043, TP-Link MR 3020) to which will be connected a 3G/4G Usb dongle.


Following are the router models with USB port supported by My WiFi Service:



To configure the router will need to follow the following steps:


1) Configure the router following the instructions for configuration with preconfigured firmware.


2) Plug the 3G/4G USB dongle(without disconnecting the WAN cable).


3) In "location" settings enable "Use 3G USB connectivity" and insert the APN of your mobile operator.
