Re: Huawei E3131 dongle help

You need to download and install the Huawei connection manager program for your dongle which is called "Mobile Partner" then your computer will see it as a modem.

 

You can get it by clicking the download link at the top of the page here

Then go into options and set up a new connection for giffgaff with settings

 

APN giffgaff.com

Username  giffgaff

Password  password

Number to dial  *99#

 

Save the settings and set it as your avtive connection.
