Digi broadband usage experience – 2nd day

 

demdem

After few weeks getting the free broadband modem from Digi, which won it from the pimpmybroadband contest, finally i’m able to get the package activated.

Currently 2nd day using it and sharing some of the experience, hahah.

Okie, the modem used is Huawei E160E, which is smaller and having more features (external antenna port and microSD card slot) compared to Huawei E220 modem.

However, there are some issue for this modem application. As per found from the search engine too, if you facing some disconnection either automatically or manually, there might required you to re-start your modem in order for it to recognise the device and get connected again.

I was thinking will it be solved after updating the firmware version? Which is I am in the process updating it 😛
The modem was currently tested with Microsoft Windows 7 environment, and yet to be run at Mac OS.

So far so good if get connected to the HSDPA signal. But i’m more easy to get connected to Edge signal as my housing are was merely covered by the signal.

And after searching from the web, I found that there are some antenna devices selling in UK which believe to be able to boost up the modem signal performance.
