Hi all, newbe here. I have just got an unlocked 4g wifi modem off Ebay, now the problem is i have a Huawei b535 router but I am getting 5 bars and very little speed so got the modem but when I put the sim card in the router I get no connection or signal, but I put my sim card out of my phone in it and it works, can anyone please help me.

Is this one or 2 routers you are talking about, it's unclear if this 4G router off ebay is the B535 or a different one. If its a cheap Chinese unbranded one then good luck, mines in the bin.

If it is the B535 you are having these issues with then.

Which network is the sim for.

Have you put the sim into the router the correct way (instructions are not very clear normally)

Have you checked the router has the correct APN loaded, if not add an APN that matches the one on the working phone.

Sorry kommando828, the network is three, the 4g wifi router is the one i got from Ebay, the one i got from three is the wuawei B535, the data sim i got from three will connect to the network on the B535 but won't connect in the 4g one, but the three data sim from my phone works in the 4g router, hope this makes more sense.

You probably need to go to the router settings page (on WiFi 192.168.8.1) find the mobile network settings and ensure the correct provider is ticked in APN settings
