    Default TATA Photon Plus with wifi router

    I had purchased TATA Photon plus OLIVE VME101 about a year ago.I want to configure it with my router(MIFI H1) . But it doesn't connect. IT asks for dial number , username , password and APN . Username , Password and Dial no. i already know. But what about APN . I asked customer care and they said we can't give you APN and they said that it is possible to configure it . Please help.

    MIFI H1 3G wifi router

    Problem:
    Manual APN button
    enter APN. ( Not available )
    Try Auto button instead of manual. for APN. if button available in your 3G wifi router.

    REF:

    If really needed APN you have to access PHOTON menu settings.

    appears there is no box showing APN.


    Feedback.

    well for connecting tata photon you must configure your tab
    . just create any profile name like Tata photon and leave access point or apn field blank. just enter user name and password provided by Tata photon which you always dial when connecting photon device from pc. then dial that connection thats it.

    Can you post as screenshot the settings page of the (3G) wifi router ?
    where it asks for APN etc.
    apn of tata photon wifi will work
    like the SSID name in the wifi router ?
    Basically the Photon is a WIFI adapter with a dialer software.

    In the wifi router what are the options available ?
    DynamicIP/Auto DHCP/PPPoE /etc?? Try Dynamic IP
    2.
    Try this. Download "connectify" application and install it in the laptop, in which TATA Photon is connected.This laptop then works as AP ( Access point ) for other wifi devices ( limited range )

    Got a similar page. APN ( optional here )
    Probably the Photon unitOLIVE VME101
    . is not compatible with MIFI H1 3G wifi router
    Model: MIFI-H1
    - Portable mini 3G WIFI Gateway USB modem
    - Compatible with HSDPA/HSUPA/W-CDMA 1X/EVDO/TD-SCDMA (Work with an external 3G USB adapter)
    2.
    "Connectify" reported working.

    @essbebe .... it comes in the w-cdma / evdo category ... so it should probably work ....I don't want to use connectify because then i have to keep my laptop on whenever i want to use net on my iPad

    Listed as "HSIA" model . ( HSPA/ etc )
    http://systemexplorer.net/db/ttsl%20...20000.exe.html
    In case, if your photon device does not show hsia signal, make sure you’re having the latest firmware version of the hardware USB device
    .

    What happened to the other members using PHoTON ?

    Try these settings for Tata Photon Plus Postpaid/Prepaid :

    Username : internet
    Password : internet
    Dial up : #777
    Authentication : CHAP
    APN : empty

    Importan Note :- no need to put APN for Tata Photon Plus, just leave it blank and follow above settings in 3G cdma modems or in Wifi 3G router. These are working settings. Simply try & Enjoy !!
