    Funny...they supplied me with a ZTE MF 190 which is not compatible to my Netgear MBRN 3000 3G router.
    I am wondering which route to take now. Go back to CellC or go back to In Con. ?

    The Netgear has a 2 year warranty and I've never had problems returning them. But, check on the Netgear forums, or phone Duxbury to see if there's a firmware update which will work with the modem.

    Have taken the router back to IC and they have done the firmware upgrade, still no joy,
    So now back to CellC !
    By looking at the Netgear website it seems that the Huawei dongle is compatible.
    I am going to ask them to exchange this for the Huawei.

    The plot thickens..............
    I have returned the Netgear to IC and have gone next door to PC Worx and they have tried a different make of 3G Modem ( I forget the name now) and this modem sees the speedstick but will not connect. ( Signal shows 0 ).
    According to the techie, a Huawei stick will connect, so off I go to CellC store.
    "No Sir, we shall not exchange the MF 190 for a Huawei but we will send your MF 190 for "repairs", I will take 4 to 6 weeks "
    I am not sure but sounds as though they entrust the shipment to a guy either on foot or at best via bicycle to JHB 130Kms away.
    So.........sounds as though Hello Peter needs to come to my assistance again.!
    I have emailed the customer relations dept at CellC but do not have much confidence.

    Well, no offence but the idiots who work in both IC & PC Worx in the Waterfall mall don't know much.

    Phone Duxbury, they're in JHB and will help you with this.

    Also, if the items were purchased after the 1st April then you could take up the Consumer ACT on them as well.



    P.S. Where in Rustenburg are you? I actually considered using the same setup (i.e. 3G router + CellC modem) on my inlaw's farm, outside Swartruggens but don't know if CellC has any reception there.
