PTCL EVO device with Tenda Portable 3G wireless router with battery (3G150B)

As promised, I previously reviewed the 3G150M model (without battery) and this time I am going to review the 3G150B (with battery model)

Although the battery model is more attractive and more widely used (Im using 3G150B more as compared to 3G150M) it control panel interface is fairly basic which is a set back for me and im sure for most other users as well. But still, its the best out there

There was also an advertisement in Spider magazine for the month of April 2012 as can be seen in the following photo

This Tenda device cost approx Rs. 4200 in the market and its model is 3G150B. The only difference from 3G150M is that it has battery to give backup of approx 5 hours. I configured it using the same PTCL EVO configuration settings for 3G routers.

    yar tanda ko lan kay sath kasay use kar saktay hay evo lagany ka bad jab may home pc kay sath use karta hon tu lan kay zariya conact nahi hota kindly tell me how i can use tenda with my home pc and my laptop

    • Mr. Zardari (obviously a fake name)!!

      Tenda is a Portable WiFi router hence after pluggin in EVDO, you need to have WIFI enabled in your laptop and Home PC to be able to use it. If you do not have WIFI in your Home PC, you can buy a WIFI USB Dongle or WIFI USB Card to enable WIFI.

  • Salaam Asim,

    I have a request, can you please suggest me a wifi router for PTCL Evo device (I am moving back to Pakistan after 3 years). My brother is Post Graduate Doctor Trainee so he gets 3.1 Evo from PTCL for Rs. 1000/month but he is not techie.. at all, therefore need your guidance.

    Request: I want to use PTCL EVO as a replacement for Home broadband, meaning I need a router for EVO with good range and without limit of maximum 5 connections, I’ll appreciate if roughly 30-40 Meters radius (or around that), battery powered lasting at least 3 hours. Can you please suggest any well reputed company’s router? Maximum budget is around 6000.

    Plus if you know any reliable shop, it would be a plus.

    Many Thanks

    Dear Mr. Asim,

    I just need to know one thing. My house is on 500 sq.Yard. I am planning to buy PTCL Evo 9.3 usb device and Tenda 3g-150b or 150m router. Kindly tell me will this router cover my 500sq. yard area or not ???

    • Depends on how many walls are in between, how thick are they etc etc. The best results are if the router and your device are in the line-of-sight. The distances mentioned on most devices are there assuming your router and device will be in line-of-sight.

      I have found out that if the signal has to cross floor (first floor to ground floor etc) then the signals are reduced by 40% to 50%, a wall on the other hand only reduces signals by 20% approx
