Cannot use your Wi-Fi iPad to surf on the 3G Internet in places without Wi-Fi hotspots nearby? Take your time. Here this tutorial will show you how to turn your Wi-Fi iPad to 3G iPad with 3G mobile router ZTE MF60. This might be the most feasible solution and the easiest one for iPad users. It remove any of the streaming-video content restrictions reported by iPad 3G users.
Things you need: iPad, ZTE MF60, and SIM card.
Steps to change your Wi-Fi iPad to 3G Pad:
- Insert the SIM card to the MF60′s SIM card holder.
- Hold the Power button to switch on MF60 router. It will take 1-2 minutes to initialize. The MF60 is powered on when the LED screen lights up.
- Insert the battery as shown with the contacts located against the metal springs, and press the battery down into the case.
- From the iPad’s Homescreen, tap Settings.
- In the Settings screen, tap Network
- To start the iPad scanning for available wireless networks, tap the WiFi button and then slide the slider to “on”. In a few seconds, you’ll see a list of all the networks near you, including the MF60 hotspot (If you haven’t change the SSID name, the network name is started with MF60***).
- To connect to a public network, just tap the network name and enter it the password (the password is a string of numbers printed on a sticker on the back of the MF60 itself).
More about MF60: It is a portable MiFi router that allows Wi-Fi-enabled mobile devices such as iPad to share wireless Internet connections over Wi-Fi. It is capable of downlink speeds of up to 21Mbps making it the fastest 3G router of its kind. With the unlimited hotspot MF60, you can surf the Internet at home or on the move without having to install anything on your device. You simply use the WLAN client for your device as usual.
Tip: In the end I would like to make a recommendation: Since battery life of these 3G modem routers is pretty short for using them on the way, it might be better to buy a second battery just in case.
