I have activated my sim but to complete the setup I have to connect my mobile device to my Telkom Hauwei wifi router via USB. My mobile device is an IPad with no USB port.
Where do I go from here?

@cmoerdyknot sure what you are trying to do. Why do you need to connect your iPad to the router via USB? Shouldnt you use wireless Wifi?
In which device did you put the SIM?

This is a typical problem. Many of the knowledge articles used by the Telkom desk people are based on traditional PCs that can connect with USB or ethernet cable to modems/routers... if you don't have these they go around in circles ....
If you need more help you need to specify all of the equipment you have, how they are connected and what you are trying to achieve. If you have a SIM in a USB dongle router you need to connect it to a PC to complete setup. If the SIM is in the iPad it should just work unless it is not activated...

My router is a Hauwei HG532f
My sticking point here is that the Telkom instructions are to "download the certificate" - no explanation of what certificate or where.
Many thanks for the help

@cmoerdyk My pennies worth, the cable you use to charge the Ipad, this is also a USB cable when you remove the power adaptor. You will then have to configure the router to use the USB port. This way you will be able to use your Ipad as another connector to the Internet from a backup point of view if your primary link of the router goes down.
