    Default Afrihost sim in MTN X602D dongle on Tenda 4g630 router

    Hi all

    I was using an Afrihost sim in an MTN x602d dongle on a PC, but wanted to upgrade to wifi so purchased a Tenda 4g630 router

    My problem is that the router does not have a preset APN for Afrihost and when I create a new APN on it this does not appear on the drop down list after a reboot or saving it?

    I was told I have to somehow access the dongle and change the default APN to Afihost for this to work?

    Thanks in advance for any help

    Hey Russell

    Seems like it's a quirk of this device. Do you still have the user manual? Probably the best place to look. I found it here: http://www.tendacn.com/en/download/detail-2112.html

    Seems to be fairly straightforward to change
    If AfriMan says it, it is so!

    If you asked an excellent question, please post on Answers!
