    Hi Im on a site and my virgin internet isn't great. So I remember the Vodafone mifi I bought its a r207 model. I set it up but I can't for the life of me get on internet to surf.

    However it will connect to Vodafone and whilst it is. It will update apps etc but will not connect to websites.

    Has anyone any idea I must earn you I am no techy and struggle with this kind of stuff (you proberly guessed already) so please if you can save my sanity.

    Thanks Paul

    Is it one of the MIFI I posted about a while ago ??
    If so the sim only lasts 30 days from first activation, so if you tried it before then it may have expired..

    Or same thing, when did you load / buy the data.. Almost all now have a time limit of 30 days..

    Agreed with Tonka.
    i had a Hauwai (sp) mifi and a voda non expiring sim for a few years....simply top up until used, no time limit.
    i tried using it one day and despite having £14 credit i couldnt connect to the web.
    enquiries showed voda had moved the goalposts and i had to buy an expiring data package with my existing credit.

    The card still has £14 credit but vodaphone lost a customer....i now use 3 and get the same as the early voda sim.....non expiring.

    hi, if its one of the vodafone units that were linked on here late last year. quite a few of us got them and unlocked them.. assuming the problem isn't an expired sim as mentioned above then you had to go to the log in page and find the section that allowed you to change the apn,s depending on which providers sim you used...
    I found it quite a difficult device to set up to get it to connect to the internet, so you are not alone lol.
    . @ukbill gave me a hand to understand how to go on..
    hope you can get it sorted.
    ta andy

    Bought a while ago but brand new out box today. On the Vodafone thing its given me 2gb of data should be 4gb and 30 days and its swallowing data.

    For what its worth we are in deepest France, near the end of our 2 week trip. We have a 3 sim card and it has been faultless. Absolutely recommend this for all travellers!
