    I am in need of some urgent help please with setting up mifi now we are in France. I have a Huawei mifi and a couple of the 3 13GB go anywhere data cards. I have been using the set up whilst in U.K. For
    My iPhone and iPad. We arrived in France today and no matter what I try I cannot get them to set up here. Both the iPad and phone recognise them but the keep sending me to the Login page. I log in with admin and admin and am told that password is incorrect. On my iPad it says I have to set up data roaming but does not give me the option of any data provider. On my I phone which would normally be used on O2 again it sends me to login page but I cannot log in. I have just had to pay o2 £2 to buy some data to try and fix this. So please help needed if possible. Thanks

    You do not need a provider, just enable roaming. It will say this might incurr charges ignore it it will not!

    I'm a bit confused. Have you used the 3 sim cards in the UK? It sounds as if you haven't. So have you used the mifi in the UK with another sim card? Not sure I have an answer, just trying to identify the issue.
    Have you installed the Huawei app? It makes it easier to manage.

    All I can suggest is checking that you are being connected to the correct login page 192.168.1.1 for Huwaei devices

    Yes I have used the 3 card in mifi in U.K. Was using it yesterday in Portsmouth eont work today in France. Tried the second one as thought may be a card problem. Same result.
    admin/admin is not accepted. No haven't used app just website. No internet so can't download app when I try I just get referred back to website. On I pad when I hit mobile data in setting NHS it gives me the option of setting it up but once just offered me a PAYG roaming site and now just says cannot connect to server. On I phone I just get the log in page. Bought both data cards from
    my memory. They are the 3 internet with legs ones. £24 or similar for 12gb for the year

    My cards are from my memory.
    On windows machine just plug mifi into usb and it installs 3 app then brings up the page.
    Have to say my mifi is a 3 one!

    Now I have some data on phone will try 3 website. Also maybe a call to them
    Tomorrow. Yes sounds like I have not been set up for roaming but as Muncie says I didnt think you needed to. Sorry for my ignorance but where is Parc Verger? We are in Caen with the idea of wandering down FranceSpain and Portugal to Southern Spain. Hence the mifi set up.
