Hi my name is ***** ***** I will be the expert working with you today to help and resolve the problem you have posted.
I am sorry to know that you are facing problem patching the 3g dongle.
Let me know the make and model of the 3G dongle and where do you want to connect.
Hi Des i would like to tell you that you would need a computer to get the TOOGOO HSDPA 3.75G usb dongle to get connected and make it work as it requires a driver installation which can be only be done on a computer.to use internet device in a car you would need a hotspot device.
Why don't you try it with your phone, your phone has 3g connection try to make it hotspot and all the devices which is wifi can detect and connect you do not need the usb dongle for internet.
please confirm is this the device you have: https://www.amazon.co.uk/HSDPA-7-2Mbps-Wireless-Dongle-Adapter/dp/B00Q4W185O
so this will not work on a card if you think you can connect it directly on a usb using cigarette lighter this device will require a computer to get the hardware insatlled and then you can use it as a hotspot or a wifi modem
i will open the question for other experts for the input and views.
Hi there and welcome
when you set it up with the APN, which values did you use?
on this point
"i need to set up the APN but i cant seem to make it work with what ive been told to enter, im on EE network "
ok, can you call on 7953 966250 and get the correct APN please as they use different ones for different devices but this dongle is not listed
Let me know the results please.
ok, I want you please to reset the head unit to factory settings.
Go to settings, backup and reset, Factory data reset
run this, setup the head unit again and tell me if you can then get the dongle to work please
No, these head units and not overly reliable but the settings are correct and we have ruled out any firmware issues so it may be a hardware issue with the headunit.
My advise is to have it replaced under warranty and attempt it on the new one, as everything that can be done with this one has been done. It's all setup correct, that we have ensured.
I can understand, it needs to be replaced, this we have confirmed now, its the only remaining cause.
If you would like any additional information or assistance, please do not hesitate to let me know.
