Advice on 3G 4G dongle for 8800AXL/R2

Post by KevinR2 » Sat Oct 20, 2018 6:18 pm

Hi guys as the only list I can find on Billion UK is four years out of date, I'm looking for info on mobile dongles that do or don't work on the current billion routers. Especially the 8800AXL R2.

Ironically billion in Australia have a lot of info and an active thread on whirlpool, but all of the
Australian dongles are different models from their uk siblings. So it's of little help. :|

Thanks.

Wrote a long update, but stupid forum times out logins and destroyed it.

In brief:
Huawei E3531 3G works in giffgaff. You have to add the giffgaff profile to the dongle.
