- the modem came in a tiny plastic bag, with no instructions. So I had to look online how to put the simcard in.
- and because of previous experience with a very unstable modem delivered by a provider, with provider software, some years back. I had to use an usb extension cord and reconnect all the time.
But after plugging the modem in my laptop with Windows 7 (no extension cord). A setup program started automatically. After setting the APN I could connect (I use a simcard from Bliep* in the Netherlands, so it's definitely unlocked).
I could have given it 4 stars instead, because of the packaging. But I’m so happy to be online and it works like a charm, so 5 stars from me!
It WORKS WELL ON WINDOWS 7. So it's up to what are you going to use it for
I would have given it 5 stars but the old dongle is about 4 years old and I would have preferred this to be a little smaller.
