Customer Reviews
Works well, Windows 10 installation tricky for me,
I'm new to 3G dongles. This seemed cheap and works well; using a free 200Mb per month data SIM from 3, see https://3g.co.uk/three-data-reward-sim. Advise downloading latest firmware upgrade and documentation from D-Link support https://eu.dlink.com/uk/en/products/dwm-157-3g-hspa-plus-usb-adapter . Some experience from installation: Installation on old Windows XP laptop: plug in dongle, starts self installation of D-Link Connection Manager software. After installation, upgraded firmware. Clicked on Connect in D-Link Connection manager and connected to 3G service straightaway. Installation on Windows 10 64bit laptop: plug in dongle, appeared as USB drive. Manually installed D-Link Connection Manager package that was listed. After installation, clicked on Connect and got various error messages. Got the dongle working by disabling any other connected networks in Windows 10 (wi-fi etc) and enabling mobile networks only. Also set Access Point Name to "three.co.uk" in both Connection Manager settings and in Windows 10 network adaptor settings. With these changes clicking on Connect worked.

Great for on the move,
This is great for travelling. Pick up a cheap sim and go, e.g. Tesco or GiffGaff. Roy
