Need to ask, I have a Netgear DGN2200m v2 Telkom modem and purchased a D-Link DWM-157 and when it is connected just says 3G device is not supported, used a friends d-link DWM-156 and it worked, is there any router upgrade out there to get the 157 to work.

Re: DGN2200m

Hi @Rowena, I have made contact with our hardware experts who have advised that unfortunately that router dow not support the newer D-Link DWM-157 dongle Smiley Sad


The Netgear DGN2200 is quite a old router now, and as such Netgear is no longer supporting it in terms of firmware updates. The older DWM-165 does still work. Here is a list of other supported Dongles - 


  • Huawei E153
  • Huawei E173
  • Huawei E367
  • Huawei E1820
  • Huawei E353
  • Huawei E303
  • Huawei E3131
  • D-Link DWM-156

Re: DGN2200m

Many thanks for the answer, does clear it up, what router would be recommended as I dont see moving from Telkom any time soon, we live in Leazonia and our reception is from bad to worse. I macgyvered a reflector around the dongle and now consistently get 10mbit/s up from between 3-4mbit/s
