How To Connect Huawei E220 Mac

It a bit frustrates me when a few of my peripherals (such as printer, scanner, and 3G modem) can’t connect automatically with my MacBook.

After searching Google thoroughly I found many scatter information to configure and connect my Huawei E220 3G modem on my MacBook.

Here’s what you need to do:

  • Download the Huawei E220 Mac driver.
    It consists of 2 files: Huawei Data Card Application, and the driver itself (the driver is for Leopard).
  • Install the driver and follow its instruction
  • Plug your Huawei E220 into your Mac
  • Run the Huawei Data Card Application and set your APN (Access Point Name). You can ask your ISP for the APN.
  • Create the connection on your Mac:
    1. System Preferences > Network
    2. Click + to create new service. It opens a drop down menu then choose Huawei Modem from the Interface.
    3. Telephone Number: *99#
    4. Account Name: your account name (leave it blank if your ISP doesn’t require it)
    5. Password: your account password (leave it blank if your ISP doesn’t require it)
    6. Click Advance
    7. Vendor: Other
    8. Model: Huawei Mobile Connect – 3G Modem
    9. Check the Enable error correction and compression in modem
    10. Dial mode: Ignore dial tone when dialing
    11. Click the PPP tab
    12. Settings: Configuration
    13. Uncheck the Send PPP echo packets

I was able to connect using these steps on the first try :)

    thanks for this blog.
    but i tried the procedure here step-by-step and it didnt work for me.
    i had a problem during the authentication stage (service provided) where it should be configured as PAP. i couldnt seem to find it in the Advanced section of the modem configuration.

    what i did is download the latest MobileConnect client at the official Huawei site at http://www.huawei.com/mobileweb/en/doc/list.do?type=-1&id=736

    i then downloaded the “E220 Client Software MACHOSTB023D01SP00C03 for Mac (1298 KB) 01-Apr-2008″.

    installed it and created a new profile using the following configurations (PLDT WeRoam):
    - APN: weroam
    - Telephone No: *99#
    - Username: pldt@weroam
    - Password: pldt
    - Authentication: PAP

    hope this helps other readers as well.

    more power! ;)
