    We are currently in blanes with a Vodafone mifi unlocked. We have bought a 2gb sim card orange and had it put into the mifi.

    The I pad recognized the mifi unit and has a strong signal. Unfortunately every time we log on to a page it says no internet connection. Any ideas would be good. Thank you.

    I do not know about an iPad but with my android devices I had to download the Huawei app to be able to connect to the internet via my mifi.

    Hope I'm not stating the obvious, Has the mifi got a strong cellular signal though?,cos it will still send its mifi but if it's not receiving the Orange network it won't work.

    Is the Mifi connected to the Internet?
    You should be able to check this in the status window

    Hi daz.. hope ive got this right...but just because you are connected to the mobile Wi Fi device doesn't mean you are connected to the Internet. .. There will be a signal indicator on the device which on the Vodafone unit is a series ok bars... Red indicates no Internet connection through to green which should be giving you Internet. .
    My Vodafone unit also required the correct apn information to be inserted into the device using the log in page...depending on the sim card I was using...
    Hope I've picked up your query correctly...If not just ignore the above ...:)
    Hope the pair of you are well and we meet up at some point again..
    Andy

    The strong signal is the connection from the mifi to the i=pad not the 3g/4g signal to the mifi. I think the settings in th mifi need to be sorted out is the mifi signal green or red if red it is not connected to the mobile signal. From memory you have to log onto the mifi with your web browser type in 192.168.1.1 the you can alter the settings it is probably the apn setting that needs changing

    It is possible that the mi-fi settings are for Vodaphone not Three. Try connecting to the mi-fi device and changing the settings. See attached url for settings.

    I have bought many sims in many countries. It is always a good idea to ask for the APN in the shop and write it down. Most of the time the mifi and sim seem to do it automatically. But sometimes they don't, it can be a bugger then. You have to ask Mr Google and there will inevitably be 3 or 4 that the network uses that you will have to work through.
