    I've been trying to figure this out for 8 days! And I still haven't been able to get online.:(

    It just says 'Remote PPP Error'

    It has a blue signal on the 'dongle' so it has a signal. It just doesn't connect.
    I'm sure the setting are correct but I don't know for sure.

    I'm running OS X 10.5.8
    The network is 'Three'

    Can anyone help please?

    "You have to make sure you have all the settings correct.

    For me on T-Mobile PAYG in the UK it's:

    Dial: *99#
    Account name: t-mobile
    Password: tm

    If it's PAYG you also need to make sure you have credit too, of course."


    "In System Preferences -> Network -> HUAWEI Mobile:
    Configuration: Default
    Telephone Number: *99#
    Account Name: <leave blank>
    Password: <leave blank>

    Click on the 'Advanced Button', then on the Modem tab:

    Vendor: Generic
    Model: GPRS (GSM/3G)
    APN: 3netaccess
    CID: 1

    The other advanced settings leave as they are."

    Hope this helps.

    In New Zealand, same modem different supplier.
    Uninstall the software using the option in the install dmg > Empty trash > Restart > Reinstall.
    Or use the separate uninstall option if there is one.
