I am using a Surf SOHO with FW 6.1 in the office and testing out different 3G USB modems. It turns out that, I can set Surf SOHO “Auto” mode in operator setting for some of the USB modems, while the others requires “custom” setting, i.e. manually enter APN and dial number “*99#”. The reason I am doing the test is that I plan to deploy Surf SOHO in many African countries and the 3G USB modems will be sourced from local market.
My questions is:
If I don’t find a suitable modem in the compatibility list, how do I find a USB modem that can work under auto mode? I plan to deploy Surf SOHO in offices in many African countries, it is not easy to find a modem in the compatibility list.
