This is Vodafone 3G Router with Wireless LAN. It's called the Vodafone Web & Talk. This is a device which allows users to share a single 3G connection via wireless LAN. You are able to access high speed mobile data services when connected to Maxis or Celcom 3G network. This product is most ideal for the business sector: accountancy, construction or media who regularly have teams working together from their main office and who need easy access through their notebooks.

Please note that the Talk & Web box does not have to be installed at specific position. In the box is a Novatel Merlin U630 pcmcia datacard (see picture). The PC or Notebook can be connected by WLAN or LAN to the Talk & Web box. Once done the router address is set at 192.168.0.1. The usual way is to connect a RJ45 LAN cable to the RJ45 slot on the router and then the other end to a computer or notebook. Then you get into the configuration menu using Admin as standard password. Once inside you are able to do all the configuration with the router. This approach is very similar to configuring an ADSL Modem Router.
This product will select UMTS or GPRS automatically and remain always connected at all times. The connection speed is 360-384 Kbps.

It is possible to remove the Merlin U630 pcmcia datacard and to use it on a notebook pcmcia slot. This is a workable unit Merlin U630 which is worth over RM1200 if sold by Maxis. In Hong Kong some users have replaced it with a Vodafone HSDPA (3.5G) datacard (Merlin U740). update the firmware and it works. Unfortuantely the users are rather selfish and refuse to reveal how this is done. You may give it a try but I can offer you no 100% assurance because I have not personally done it. Sorry!

The router can be configured to run with integrated firewall by programmers. The product can also support pin input from various mobile service operators.

As the name implies the Talk & Web box can also be used for talking. You may connect Analogue telephone or answer phone or even a printer to the device.

One good advantage of this product is that is saves people the time and consuming process of installing & registering a conventional fixed line. For example if you wish to apply for a Streamyx Line it may take several days and so much hassle with phone line cables and wiring. With this router you just visit Maxis or Celcom and buy a Mobile connect 3G SIM card (postpaid or prepaid) and then instantly insert it to the Router and it works instantly. Nice, neat and easy eh!!

Apart from 3G network this unit allows users to connect their normal telephone to it. You are able to make call with this unit, hence the name Web & Talk. You may insert a Mobile SIM card (with or without 3G, it does not matter) and then insert the card to the Mobile Slim slot in the route (see picture 4 and look for the word Voice. It's above it). Then you connect a normal Analogue phone to the phone slot and you will instantly be able to make a phone call using this router alone. No mobile phone is required. :-)

Another nice feature. If you add a printer to this device you are able to receive incoming fax. However to get this to work you must first make sure your Mobile SIM card is enable for fax. I think the monthly fee is about RM10. Check it out with Maxis or Celcom. It's easy. Just ask for data call. Once done you will be given a data call (or fax) number. Eg. 012-1234567 This datacall number is in addition to your mobile phone number. Hence you get 2 mobile numbers with one card. Then you print your fax number onto your name card. Now if someone send you a fax you are able to receive the fax message printed with your printer. Cool eh!!!

Ah, if you do not like the idea of just receiving fax via your printer then connect a Fax Machine to this router. Hah, usually Fax Machine requires telephone line, right? Now need not analogue telephone line. Just connect your fax machine telephone cable to the router 'Fax In' slot and you are able to send fax out using this device. Just make sure your mobile SIM card has data call (means fax) and is given a separate number.

To conclude, this 3G router is able to accomodate 2 Mobile SIM card simulataneously. One SIM card (with 3G) goes into the Novatel Merlin U630 datacard. The other SIM card (no need 3G but with datacall enabled) goes into the SIM slot next to the datacard. So, you use this router to Web and Talk. Ah, and fax too.

For your information this box is sold at Euro99 (RM500) if subscribed with a 24 months contract or Euro490 (RM2500) if it's for a 3 months contract. The price to pay per month is around Euro 100. Expensive product, eh!

As stock is limited do buy early to avoid disappointment.

Note:

The 3 slots behind the router are the Fax (1) and Phone (2) slots. To the right are the USB and RJ45 slots. The top cover can be opened manually. This is where you insert the mobile SIM card to in order to use Internet (Web) and Make call (Talk). This is meaning of Web 'n' Talk.
