I’ve been strugling to connect through the internet using my Huawei E220/E160
in my Snow Leopard 64-bit. It’s a bit hackish just to connect and get the
proper configuration in place.
I want to put something together that really helps me connecting back to
the internet with this HSDPA Dongles specially Huawei E220/E160. I know they
are both totally different devices but hey, it works fine with me.
First thing you need to do is to eject/remove the device.
To start with get the latest driver from Huawei’s website:
Install the package.
Insert your Huawei dongle, you should be prompted by the System Preferences
asking you to add the following devices:
Add the following devices, but we need to focus on the HUAWEIMobile-Modem,
since this is the one we really need.
Once installed you need to configure the HUAWEIMobile-Modem.
Go to System Preferences
Select on HUAWEIMobile-Modem
In the Modem Tab, fill out the following:
Vendor: Generic Model: GPRS(GSM/3G) APN: fbband _if your in the Philippines and you have Sun Cellular Broadband_ CID: 1
Fill out the Telephone Number: *99# this is generic with all providers
Once done, your ready to connect.
Enjoy your 3G connection with your Huawei device.
