The Huawei E585 from 3 Mobile is one of the best modem you could buy with your money because its not just a 3G modem which allows you to connect to the internet using the 3G internet connection but also allows you to access 5 wifi devices. This means that you can connect to 5 different wireless devices through this modem in wifi mode. These devices are offered by 3 Mobile which are generally locked, but you can easily find unlocked ones at ebay and in this article we are going to discuss on how you could set this up with the 3G SIM Card.

To get started you need to powerup the modem and connect it to your computer using the Wifi. This means that you will find the new wifi connection under the ‘Internet Networks’ option.

  3. Reliance is a chor company. I have been using the Netconnect – supposed to be broadband for last 1 year and the speed is pathetic. I have already filed a case in consumer court to get full refund and damages for deficient service. They promise 3.1 Mbps but till date I have not got even 100 Kbps and I have changed the Huawei modem TWICE!!
    The modem also is useless brand. All in all pls AVOID AVOID AVOID buying any Reliance product. You will regret…their customer service does not exist. :( Shame on the Ambanis’

  4. Hi, I just got my Huawei E585 Mobile WIFI router from UK, Costed me 4500 INR

    I got a BSNL 3G DATA SIM Activated just 2 days ago and when I inserted the SIM into the router and Powered it up, All it is showing is “SEARCHING”

    When I searched for it in my Laptop, I did find it and established a connection with it after keying in the WIFI Key provided by the Seller.

    Now though it is showing as connected, I am not able to access the Internet.

    For this as a solution the seller has provided me with a set of Instruction which can be seen at: wizadora.com/e585.pdf, these instructions are pretty much the same as provided by you.

    The instruction says, After I establish the Connection with the router I should access the Settings page by keying in the IP Address of the router into my Browser, when I do so… Its not opening the Settings page…. It Just shows SEARCHING on the Screen and a WIFI logo above it with a 1 next to it, Maybe showing that 1 Computer is connected to it.

    Can some one please help me set it up?

    Thank you for your time
