What can I do with this USB modem?
If you’re looking for a way to gain access to the internet while you are working away from home or the office, then this USB mobile broadband modem dongle is perfect for you. This dongle can receive 3G signals, which can provide you with access to download and upload speeds of up to 7.2Mbps and 5.76Mbps respectively*. 2G signal is also possible, as 3G signal depends on the strength of the signals.

*Speeds may vary and will be dependent on the strength of the 3G signal you can receive

Supplied with this modem are two £5 PAYG credits, with each supplying a 250MB data allowance. The data allowance runs out either when you use it up or after 30 days from when it was first used, with the second top-up being available for use after that.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from The instructions supplied with this device are very poor, you simply insert it into your USB hub, wait while the device installs, then restart your computer. When you restart, you simply press the start button and the first Ј5:00 voucher is activated. it seems to work very well so far. Ray

Rated 1 out of 5 by from The item works ok, however I can't give it more than one star because the Vodafone customer service is so dire. The service is restricted so won't open anything rated as over 18 and I'm not talking about "adult" stuff either.... I emailed them to remove the restriction but they want to charge me to do this. Once I used up the credit, the item went straight into the bin. Maplin service is fantastic but Vodafone, not worth the effort.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Pretty useless. This device is not 'standard' and does not confirm to industry norms in a way which allows non-supported platforms to use it. Watch out even if using WinXX. USB Device ID reports as 19d2:1181, but may later report as 19d2:1179. It tries to fool the operating system into thinking it is a CD-ROM drive in order to try to load its proprietary firmware. This will only work with supported operating systems. It does not work via WINE. Even MS requires the installation of the dot-NET framework. There is absolutely no published information on the correct connection settings. The K3772-Z does NOT work with LINUX at all....even if you try to manually configure it. OK it doesn't actually say it would work but they have done something to specifically lock it down! They clearly have some reason to prevent it being used on Linux. Why? It almost works if you unmount the virtual CDROM with sudo eject /dev/sr1. Then you can use various device managers to try to set up the connection. I got as far as getting a flashing green LED indicating that it had detected the vodafone network but it still refused to connect. This is the first device which I couldn't get working in Ubuntu. I previously chose a Huawei device on 3 in the UK and these have always worked. At least that is my view with my device.
