I just got this 3G dongle and when I put it in the laptop, it installs well and then after selecting the 3G Prepaid as my APN and trying to 'connect', I keep getting a PPP error. Does anyone know why?

Hmm. The number to be dialled is *99# and the APN should be mtnl.net

Should work fine.

Wow, the default apn was mtnlgprs something and I changed that to what u said and voila! It's working!

Thanks a lot!

Any idea on how often it disconnects/refreshes?

p.s. OH CHRIST, i just did a speedtest and the download speed shows just 500ish KB/s....!!! is it not 3g? And now suddenly, it dropped and the mtnl prog shows 'searching..' in top with the red arrow... i changed the network to Auto from UMTS/HSDPA and now it shows EDGE..but net looks sickening slow then...i changed it back to HSDPA and it shows SEARCHING... dont know what to do.. ok now it's showing HSDPA.. but hardly 1/4th of the bar

Well I guess All Modem Have Different config page so AS does MTNL



For me i have huawei E355 modem
3g Mode can be found on

either if you can enter like normal modem login page
as
192.168.1.1

MObile network Setting -> Network -> 3g preferred or 3G only MOde or some as GSM etc etc

Really MTNL 3g is awful service some times i get or sometimes i dont
avg Good 3G speed wg=hat i got outdoors is somewhere around 550-650kbps download speed as m having unlocked huawei modem that support 21MBPS speed

so as for your case

You are having 3.1MBps
Roughly it should support Download speed upto 300-350kbps


As mtnl have upgraded there speed but not the 3G modem
so currently modem speed support upto - 3.1mbps

but
mtnl current speed which is showing from multiple sources somewhere 7.1 mbps ie
800-880kbps

may be speed gets upgraded in near future to 21 mbps depn upon mtnl aunty`s

m sorry i couldnt reply earlier i dont got any quote notification
