    I have bought mobile internet from motorhomewifi with the Huawei 5577 and 3G data sim. My air printer works fine with Virgin but when I use the Huwei and sim the printer doen't recognise It, can anyone give me any advice.

    Cheers,

    John.

    Do you need to configure the wireless connection on the printer to the mifi?

    We have the Envy 120e. I think the wireless setup will be similar to yours.
    You need the wifi name and password for your Huawei unit. Should all be on a label somewhere on the unit.
    Then you need to set up the wireless connection on the printer, you access it from the front panel, using the wifi icon.
    Once you touch the wireless icon, you should see menus and one will say something like Wireless Setup wizard. Follow the instructions and away you go.
    Should be similar to this.....

    I've got the envy 4500e if yours is like mine you don't need a mifi as you can print wirelessly without a router by selecting wireless direct!
