Good for you, nice to see someone actually finding this post useful
i have set up my device according to ur advice but at the sauspage of tp link 3g device onlu shows the sign “device identified” but it didnt connect
Double check settings. Save all settings and then reboot the router
but not resolved yet
Unknown Modem. Click here to configure the modem manually. my router tells this error what should i do
None of the routers have “PTCL EVDO” preconfigured so you have to do it manually. Your router is telling you right. Accept the option and configure it manually
sir.. mare pass tenda 3g 150 router he…or main usko nitro k sath estemal kar raha hon…plz tell me k is k wifi main security code kis trha lagaya jata he..
The options are very clear from the Tenda control panel, please have a second look
When i connect my device to the router, it says that identified successfully and status goes to Connection, after 10 or 15 minuts router shows that the USB is Unplugged,
Kindly help me out
May be your device/router needs a firmware upgrade?
but how to upgrade the firmware?qand how to choose right compatible upgrade?
Never did that but should be easy
ye it works perfectly with above settings, if you are having “No internet access” then simply update the firmware of your dLink router

I really can’t but it should be pretty straight forward. Let me check if I can get the settings from a friend using Worldcall

Asim Bhai coincidently my name is also asim, when we leave the blank to apn column and click next the message comes it should not be blank so the next window is not opening from which i can reboot the router. what should i do?

Does PTCL Evo Device works Perfectly with D-Link 3G Router model no: DWR-112
I need your help ???
I have never tried this specific model but it should work
Aslamualaikum Asim Bhai I am thinking about buying a wifi cloud device but its too expensive for me as i am a uni student and the problem with usb wifi device is that i cant connect my mobile with it.can u give me a solution ??
Also with ur experience can u tell me an economical combination of usb device and wifi router just as u showed in ur tenda device blog and can u guide me that which service has the best ratio of coverage,speed and less charges ??
BTW u r doing an excellent job by guiding novices like me
Shakaib, Wifi routers (like the one I reviewed above) will let you connect any mobile which has wifi feature in it.
Secondly, there are now a number of Wifi/3G portable routers in the market that are affordable and you can use them easily BUT if you are talking about affordable EVDO packages? well consult PTCL about it, there are a number of packages.
Coverage/Speed varies from area to area. In my area I get 3/4 signals and still be able to reach 3.1mpbs speed but in some areas the signals are poor. Again, you have to check how good the coverage is in your area by directly asking the OneStopShop in your area or borrowing one of your friends/co-workers EVDO to test. Personally I just keep EVDO as backup even though it performs extremely well, I use PTCL landline as my primary connection.
Thanks for appreciating my efforts and this blog
I’m suing TP-LINK TL-MR3420 when we leave the blank to apn column and click next the message comes it should not be blank . what should i ?
Does not look right, can you type in anything and bypass this screen and still be able to connect to EVO via the wireless router? It should work
this TP-LINK TL-MR3420 configures only to the place where 3g signals are received and where the evo 3g connects in Hybrid or CDMA signals it does not support. and this signal fluctuation is normal so i can say that this model is useless in pakistan for ptcl evo.
i have Tp-Link 3G/4G wireless N Router..i wanna connect ptcl evo 3 with it. but i cannt connect. please help me out
Dear, due to the popularity of this blog post, I contacted TPLink and Tenda to at least let me write reviews for their 100s of devices and then take those devices away but they are not interested in such.
So, All I can say is follow the instructions as outlined above and the settings will be the same in whatever control panel/device you are using
tl-mr3420 can u plz tell me the evo setting i am unable to connect through this tp link
Please use the same settings as mentioned above
hey i have a evo nitro but when i apply the setting it says the pin cannot be empty pls help
Try ‘0000’ as pin

hello sir…i want 2 check my mdn number of evo…so,how can i would do it??
Not possible from the interface, as far as I think
open ur evo back cover and see your mdn number
bhai i am using my EVO with EVDO mode, but i cant even download a 10 kb file. why? though i have checked it by the reprensentative in the office of ptcl but still it is downloading???
Probably you are in a low coverage area (signals weak). Change your location and try again (probably from your cousin’s place or Office etc)
I wanted to buy a buy a wifi router with battery backup. What should I do? Wifi tenda device by ptcl or any other device. Which one is best and which one cost less. Reply
The market is very volatile and these blog posts are more than a year old. I have tried Tenda’s battery model and it worked fine or me. Even it worked fine on 3G networks in Sri Lanka (I was there the last week). So, from my experience I recommend that. But you can check market for cheaper / good options
i have problem it saying that uknow modem click here tp configure manually when i click than say upload 3g configure file. can any one tell me how to solve this prob

You are probably in the wrong area

i bought TPlink MR3220 router today but cannot install it on my laptop windows 7 with PTCL Evo 3G EC178 Huwaei USB Modem…
Can anyone help me on it? as when try to enter IP address 192.168.0.1 it does not open as i plugged the usb on router..
Are you connected to the new TPLink device? I doubt thats the case
I can connect the EVO Nitro successfully with TP LINK MR420 but my evo 3.1 doesn’t connect. It keeps identifying and connecting and eventually disconnects. How come on does and the other doesn’t given the settings are the same.
Thanks, awaiting your reply.
Do both devices work fine on Laptop? if thats so, It may be some issue with the router and you can check with vendor for any ROM updates etc. If the issue is the same on laptop, your EVDO device is not working properly and may need to go to claim warranty (if applicable)
Dear Asim, router works well with PTCL EVO, but its not working with PTCL WAN, can u explain entire settings
I have PTCL Wingle and TP-Link 3g Router MR-3420. I am unable to connect Internet of Wingle through MR-3420. Please help me in this regards.

evo nitro cannot match with d link router
I have no clue / experience of that
Indeed a job well done in your posts.
Dear – I just want to know if I will be able to use internet on my desktop after pluggin the ptcl evo usb in the router, if yes then can you plz comment, how…
Plug EVDO in the 3G router, configure 3G router, secure the 3G router with strong pass phrases (or password). Connect from a laptop or desktop system using the builtin Wifi access card.
I tried ptcl evo with tp link TL-MR3040 , connected in an instant and working like a charm , settings were same as mentioned in the link.
Glad to know it worked seemlessly
sir i want router for 3g evo wingle i saw some router but not compatibility for mt wingle modem , wingle modem or version is EC315 you have any idea which router support this wingle modem and main purpose of router need is wingle wifi range not good so please tell me a router which support my 3g evo wingle
These settings may not work with Wingle, Wingle is 9.3 and these settings are for EVDO which is 3.1
D-Link DIR-412 is working with PTCL Wngle..
SO, Which setting is suitable for EVO wingle.
Never tested EVO WINGLE with this modem. Basically, I dont need to since EVO WINGLE has wifi builtin
I purchased EVO Wingle Nitro USB Device [ Huawei EC315-2 ].
Can I plug this USB device to stronger WiFi 3G/3.5G router like TP-Link 3420 ?
You should be able to, just make sure that you turn off wifi in your Wingle so that you can distribute Wifi using your new TPLINK router only
Anyone can tell me that what is difference between PTCL Evo 3G (huawei) Usb which is in black color and it has no crad slot option and other 3G evo 3.1 usb is in white color and it has card slot option.
which result is good?and why they are different?
Aine, PTCL has contracts with different vendors to import EVDO devices. I also have one black and one white and it does not make any different performance wise. Yes there are some device specific benefits / drawbacks like the Huawei black device they used to sell in the start gives better signals then the ZTE devices (personal experience and test)
Hi , I am trying to do same thing with D-Link DWR-113 Router , its not working . any suggestion what I need to do ? I am using this with my PTCL Evo device . .with above given setting detail . .
What device are you using?
I have D-Link DIR-412. Same settings were working with a previous EVO device. Misplaced that EVO device and got a new one Hawai EC-178. Now same setting are not working with this device. Any remedy?
I have no idea why the new EVDO is not working, it should
i had the same issue with my router…. you should update the firmware to the latest one as the new usb devices from ptcl are not supported on the older firmware… open the router control panel and you will see the update firmware option…. install the latest one available for your dlink and u shall be able to use the latest usb… if you dont have alternate internet access i would suggest use the usb on your computer to download the firmware file and update the router and then configure it with your usb… let me know if this worked or if you need any help…
i had this problem initialy… update the firmware and it should work….
I am trying to set up a wireless connection using the PTCL EVO and the DWR-113 router. As instructed, I connect the router with the laptop, and plug in the USB in the router. When I open a browser and try to access the address http://192.168.0.1, to configure the router, the website does not open! Can you tell me how to proceed? Is the router faulty, or am I doing something wrong?
Depends on router to router, maybe your router’s control panel is available at http://192.168.1.1 or http://192.168.15.1 or whatever. Consult the manual
i have a tenda router named as “3g622R” i connect it to my laptop with wifi signals insert usb to router … login to 192.168.0.1 after logged in i put evo dial number and many fields and reboot but my router always shows me no internet access!
May be you are out of coverage area and you have no EVDO signals?
