I have just purchased a Netgear
MBR624GU 3G Router. I want to use it along with my ZTE
MF100 modem (which is in their "compatible" list), but it's not working as expected.
The Router has been upgraded to the latest Firmware version (which apparently improves ZTE modem performance) and the ZTE Modem is unlocked and working fine when plugged into my Mac.
The Problem: Whenever I log into the router, the modem is recognized by the router as a
ZTE 100 modem, but it never seems to find an operator. If the modem is plugged into my Mac, the ZTE Suite recognizes it fine and finds a network and connects to the internet. The Netgear Router however fails on the same settings.
As you can see from this screenshot, the modem is recognised, but Operator and Network Mode always remain blank, hence the router never connects to the internet.
Netgear support is no good as they want a lot of personal information when signing up for their support which will be used for marketing purposes too, which I really don't want and find appalling.
Has anyone come across this and fixed such an issue?
