Connect Huawei E5786 to Billion 7800 VDPX


Hey there. Hoping someone might be able to help?


I have a Billion 7800VDPX which supports 3G/ LTE via USB. 


I also have a Huawei E5786 with a mobile data sim. 


Trying to connect the E5786 to the Billion to use the 4G (our ADSL is awful). 


Anyone done one this successfully?

You may find the Wifi Hotspot, isnt a compatable device.

Each router will have a list of supported devices, you will need to check with Billion to which Modem Models work with the modem. You may be better, to purchase a second hand 4G router like the E5186 off ebay or similar, that has 4G inbuilt as a Wifi Modem/router all in one.  Otherwise you may need to get a USB Stick, rather then a Wifi Hotspot to work with your router, Optus have a good value 200GB plan for $60 ($50 if you have Optus Mobile), which might be a good replacement for your ADSL.
