#2394 How to Share ur EVDO connection with another WiFi Laptop/Mobile ?

Posted by jingboy on 05 February 2010 - 09:09 PM


1) Assign  manual IP addresses for ur laptop wifi adapter & ur mobile . 

Laptop wifi adapter :


subnet :

Gateway : blank

Mobile wifi settings: (u can also configure another laptop with the below settings to access internet) 

IP :

subnet :

Gateway :


2) On d laptop with EVDO connection, goto network sharing center>manage network connections

 Right-click ur EVDO connection ("ZTE Wireless Terminal") >properties>Sharing
 Enable "Allow others network users to use this internet connection" and under Home networking, select "Wireless network connection"

Click Apply.

3) Goto Control Panel>Network n Sharing Center>Set up a Connection or Network

4) Choose `Set up a wireless Ad-hoc network` and click next 

5) Give a name for your wireless network (e.g., `My Hotspot`) Choose security type as WEP (as supported by most handsets) and enter a 5 digit security key. 

6) Select `save this network` and click next.... Your laptop is now acting like a wireless router and is now ready to accept connections..

7) Scan for wifi networks from ur mobile or another laptop, U will find ur access point (i.e. My Hotspot) and connect to it by entering the WEP key

Now u shud be able to use all internet applications on ur mobile (u must allow 'local connection' under connectivity, on ur mobile)

Next time when u wanna activate hotspot, all u hav to do is to goto control panel>network and sharing center>Connect to a network & double click on `My hotspot`... and u are ready to connect on your mobile

However, Video streaming apps like Youtube may not work. For this , I set up a RTSP proxy on my laptop and it works fantastic!! If u wanna know bout that, ask me and i will write a tut on that B)


#2938 Antenna specific to ZTE AC8700 Modem

Posted by AntennaGuy on 29 October 2010 - 12:22 PM

Cdma_zte_usb_modem.jpg Hey Guys,

Finally after 2 years of research I think i have sourced a Antenna for ZTE AC8700 Model. I have figured out loads of technical stuff related to the coverage issue most of EVDO users face and I think i have a resolution.

1. The inbuilt Antenna is only built to support upto 7 kms of coverage from the EVDO communication tower beyond that and considering other parameters it will only work best in 4-5 km coverage beyond that you need a antenna.
2. There are multiple types of external antenna which boost coverage upto 15 - 23 kms. Anything beyond 23 kms will need a booster with Antenna.

I have bought 1 for testing and it works perfect. I will post more details soon. The external antenna is very easy to change and connect.

#2100 Solution: Frequent disconnection of Unlimited EVDO

Posted by vbeeeks on 10 October 2009 - 01:31 PM

The batch file polls the 'google.com' IP address and checks the reply, if the reply is Ok then it just naturally ends, but when there is ERROR then it prompts the message and initiates connection by first disabling any residual connection and then establishing the connection. this batch file is then used by Task Scheduler to automate checking at brief intervals so that the valuable time is not lost while downloading torrents. This script does not use the installed ZTE EVDO application in your hard drive but the configurations used for dialing the modem - so there is a benefit of some bandwidth overhead used by that application, disadvantages is that u are not given visual clue as to the tower connectivity nor the rate and verbatim messages that the application generates, but the advantage is MAGIC for those who experience frequent disconnects. It does plain connects by disconnecting the dead or half-dead connections. u can change the rate of scheduler according to the rate of disconnects in your area. Disclaimer: use it at your own risk. Confession: This script was copied from the net and modified for EVDO use, obliges to owner.

Copy-paste the below script in your notepad and save-as the following file with name as say Connect.bat in your C:\ root folder you may copy the same to a safe place also. (Assumed OS - window XP having installed rasdial by default.)
do the following edits :

rasdial "your device name" username password
rasdial "your device name" /DISCONNECT

for eg.
as per your connection name like in my case the evdo device creates ZTE-EVDO in Network Connections
and username password is 165 165, so it becomes
rasdial "ZTE-EVDO" 165 165
save the file and open your task scheduler and follow the attached images.

*****************************copy the line immediately below till the next :END ************
@echo off
ECHO Checking connection, please wait...
PING -n 2|find "Reply from " >NUL
ECHO Let me try a bit more, please wait...
@echo off
PING -n 3|find "Reply from " >NUL
ECHO You have an active Internet connection
goto END
ECHO You have an active internet connection but some packet loss was detected.
goto :END
ECHO You do not have an active Internet connection,
ECHO Initiating Connection ....
rasdial "ZTE-EVDO" 165 165

#2061 External / Yagi Antenna for ZTE MG478/AC8700 EVDO modem

Posted by vbeeeks on 05 October 2009 - 09:27 AM

can u show me a pic of wat u did to ur evdo.. yagi antena??

i thought evdo was enabled in bhubaneswar and cuttuck in orissa...
good news now it supports rourkela...

so here's the attachment for yagi pic (did on a mobile cam) and the data for the yagi - actually these contraptions make the EVDO less mobile - u have to duplicate these thing where u use them the most. also notice the thingy is not weatherproofed nor impedance matched - because till now i cannot locate silicone glue nor the gizmos to calibrate the impedance. plain sort of connections was just enough till the BSNL Rourkela started to play their game - because it seems they have put in place some kindda traffic shaping software that restricts high bandwidth 24x7. just whe the traffic picks up CHOP CHOP. coming to yagi elements are made up of Al cloth hangars in the wooden boom.

#3083 Anna Hazare - A topic dedicated to his movement

Posted by ashokjp on 11 April 2011 - 01:03 AM

Hazare to go on fast in Delhi from April 5

PUNE: Noted social crusader Anna Hazare has decided to go on an indefinite fast from April 5 in New Delhi to press for implementation of the Jan Lokpal Bill.

Addressing a news conference here on Thursday, Radheshyam Jagtap, Pune district head of Bhrashtachar Virodhi Janandolan Nyaas, established by Hazare in Ralegan Siddhi, Ahmednagar district, adjacent to Pune, said that a signature campaign has also been organised from April 3 on Jangli Maharaj Road to garner mass support for the protest.

Posted Image "This is a national level agitation, which will be actively supported by various organisations and political parties like Professionals Party of India, Parivartan, Sajag Nagrik Manch, India Against Corruption Movement and others," he said.

"Rarely are corrupt politicians or bureaucrats prosecuted and put behind bars. The investigating agencies are controlled by the politicians; hence we have decided to put pressure on the government to enact the Jan Lokpal Bill. Institutions like Lokpal and Lokayukta, that are supposed to work independently will be of great help to the common man as there will be little scope for politicians to intervene or influence the workings," Jagtap said.

#2160 Wireless Routers for BSNL EVDO

Posted by Mobiledata on 01 November 2009 - 10:25 AM


I'm new to this forum but old to EVDO. 3G routers are now becoming available in India. I managed to get one from a Mumbai company a few months back that supports all the modems available today from Reliance, Tata , BSNL and MTNL. I got a little portable router that can be powered by either the USB port of a computer, normal mains or a car adapter.

I'm very happy with it and I thought the price was not bad either. I use a Reliance Netconnect + card with mine but I have a friend in Bangalore who uses the same router with a BSNL EVDO card and he is really happy with it.

I use my router in the car mainly as I have a laptop and a Ipod and I wanted both to be connected to the net at the same time. It also saved me big time on Friday when I was at a tradeshow where the show internet suddendly stopped and we needed Internet for our display. Out came the router and within 2 min our display was operational and 4 of us were back on the net getting emails.

The device I have is certainly worth the money I believe and would recommend it to anyone that wants to share their EVDO or 3G card.

I have been reading in a lot of places people think the price is high. I honestly think it's resonable as I did a lot of research before I purchased. The routers that are availale here in India on ebay are 50% cheaper than the ones I could get from the USA and this one is portable. All the other were big desktop models.

I have just had a look on Ebay and here is the router I got:


There are also other models available as well.

#2131 Technical Quest

Posted by vbeeeks on 19 October 2009 - 08:33 AM

<h3 class="post-title"><a href="http://evdotips.blog...erns.html">Cell Tower Signal Patterns</h3>Getting an idea of how cell towers radiate their signal and how yourown antenna receives that signal can help you, if using a directionalantenna, install and aim it in the most optimal position.
Posted ImageTheabove graphic is the typical pattern for a cloverleaf style tower mostoften found in suburban and rural areas. As you can see, the threesections that make up the pattern overlap each other and each of themhave their own identifying number called a PN (pilot number). When youare online/connected that number will show up in your connectionmanager's debug screen as the "Active" PN:

Posted Image

In the debug screen you will see references to Active, Candidate, and Neighbor pilots. The below graphic helps explain where they are relative to you. A Candidateis a cell tower in a particular direction you would be handed off to ifyou were mobile. For this discussion we are only talking about Active pilots.

Posted Image
YourEVDO antenna also radiates a signal pattern and, if directional, thatpattern is focused in one primary direction called a "lobe":

Posted Image
When the lobe of your antenna intersects the lobe of the cell tower you have a connection:Posted Image
Theabove example will show up in your debug screen as being connected toone active PN. But what if you see two active PN's? That means that thepattern of your antenna is intersecting two lobes of the cell tower ora completely different tower:

Posted ImageThissometimes causes a performance degradation if you have both of thosesector signals show up as active in your debug screen. What can you do?well you can try rotating your antenna to see if you can "lock" ontoonly one sector:
Posted ImageYouwon't be able to do this if you are using a omni style antenna becausetheir signal pattern is 360 degrees and therefore cannot be directed.that is why I think a directional antenna is better if using your EVDOmodem in a fixed position.

By using the same basic technique, ifyou are having problems with two towers at the same time you can tryaligning the antenna so that one of the towers signal path is directedto the weakest section of your antenna:
Posted Image
Inthe above example a desired signal ("A") and a undesired signal ("B")are both arriving at the antenna. If we want to maximize "A" then wewould point the main lobe of the antenna in a direction that putsundesired signal "B" into the weakest lobe, even if the main/strongestlobe is not optimally pointed at the desired signal. Remember the goalis to maximize the signal to noise ratio.

There you have it. A visual way to think about how you are getting the signal and a possible "tweak" to optimize it.

#2045 External / Yagi Antenna for ZTE MG478/AC8700 EVDO modem

Posted by vbeeeks on 01 October 2009 - 10:27 AM

Hi All,

i want to connect an external antenna to ZTE MG478 USB modem.Is it possible?

DO NOT fiddle with the antenna ZTE has provided with the EVDO device, it is tuned for the centre freq. of the EVDO device i.e 836MHz; instead fabricate a simple reflector of copper sheet in the form of cylindrical parabola which will sure give u good results once directed toward your EVDO tower, no need to concern about walls obstructing u or the trees if only on the condition your device is within the theoretical coverage area of ~3km radius of the BSNL antenna array. See the attached layout and parabolic curve - bend the Cu sheet of 250x150 on the parabolic curve and solder with heavy duty (50W) soldering iron on another flat sheet that forms a base. mark the focal point and place the EVDO antenna and tie it firmly with some strapping of your choice. mount (the big hole marked) on some cheap PVC piping 50" long with some firm base. punch some holes on the curved sheet corners with heavy duty paper puncher (single) not disturbing the curvature of the sheet to get additional supports to prevent bending away of your assembly with self-weight. that said your reception of signals and consistent data traffic depends on BSNL in you area and all disclaimer exclusiveness of mine liability while doing this DIY project. you can take help of your nearest electronic shop if u cannot manage to construct in your own. handling your EVDO device as given in the instruction booklet applies.

#797 Increasing your torrent speed.

Posted by Spike on 10 September 2008 - 07:37 AM

If you set the upload to 4, usually you would get a download of around 30kbps (kilobytes)


Hey ashok tried ur torrentz settings helped a lot. Thnx bro.
U can also try the following worked for me.
As v all knw windows limits our half open connections to 10 and thats y v cannot get good torrentz speed especially with evdo where v dont have open connections so v have to depend on the half open connections. And here's the way to maximize the half open connection. I have tried the first 2 steps and they have worked for me boosted my speed above 1mbps whereas i used to get only 200kbps max.

Windows has limited the half-open (incomplete/sync packets) connection attempts per second, in other words, you can't use P2P software at its' full potential in Vista. You can either wait until P2P software vendors find a way to overcome this problem, or You may want to "Hack" your Vista to support full potential of P2P connection.

Step #1 - Turn Off TCP Auto Tuning
TCP Auto Tuning will delay most P2P software, until the vendors updated their program, you need to turn it off. You can do that by typing " netsh interface tcp set global autotuning=disable". Next step you will need to optimize the TCP settings yourself.

Step #2 - Download SG TCP Optimizer
Go to Google and type "SG TCP Optimizer", download and install it. After that, launch the program and select "Optimal settings" and setup the Internet connection speed accordingly, if you are using your computer to direct connect with you DSL modem, check the box "PPPoE", click to apply changes and restart.

Step #3 - Replace TCPIP. sys with the hacked version
Go to Google and type "yaronmaor.net repair", download the patches accordingly and "patch" your TCPIP. sys. The patches works very well, but you need to update it frequently, and after SP1 you need to use boot up menu to bypass "driver signature" for this patch to work.

Hope works for all :rolleyes:

#2508 Get da max out of ur EVDO.....Unbelievable speed in BSNL EVDO....

Posted by ashokjp on 04 April 2010 - 09:21 PM

The device technically supports only 2.4mbps and also 491.7Mbps is something that tower summing up will not be serving all the clients together.

Then about the screenshot, it might be a speed burst !
Speed burst is just a 1 second hike in speed. Its technically not the actual speed, its just that the buffers get queued up and get delivered to the software in 1 shot. It just stays for 1 second. It is not the actual speed you are getting.

thank you very much Mr.Ashok JP

i am pavan kumar from bangalore
for nearly 5 hours i have called to different Bsnl cust care numbers.
no body has given me assistance on EVDO.
each and every time i call them, they will give me a number which is either non existing or of no use.
i have been given the following nos.

so pathetic it is.... :rolleyes:
some of them even disconnect the lines in middle of the conversation.

at last thru internet i have found this forum.
from here i have got the number for Bangalore EVDO helpline.
i got my problem sorted out. :mellow:

God its a great acheivement....after such a frustration...

god must save the people from this BSNL's hope less customer service...

once again thank u ashok.... :D
