Dlink USB Dongle

Hi. Could someone please assist.

I upgraded my adsl to uncapped and received a dlink usb with telkom integrated sim. 

How can I test the usb to see if it works?

When I turn off my adsl modem and insert the usb dongle directly into my pc nothing happens. It still shows I have no connection. 
I called telkom and they said my simcard is activaed and linked to my account, but it doesnt seem to work.

Re: Dlink USB Dongle

Hi Muneerh92


You'll need to install the D-Link connection manager that comes with the dlink usb (DWM-157) in order for the usb to make a connection to the internet.

You also need to make sure the correct APN details are set up on the usb, APN name should be TelkomInternet


If you have the DSL-G225 as the main router, you can also set up 3G failover by following the guide below
