Model : TL-MR3220

Hardware Version : V1

Firmware Version : V1.0_121123

ISP : 3


Hi i have been using my TL-MR3220 for quite some time with a 3 mobile E353 modem and have had no real problems with it other than a low maximum speed.
3 have upgrade my dongle to a e3231 which they tell e should be faster however when connected to the mr3220 it is not recognised by the router.
I have upgraded the firmware to the latest version (V1.0_121123) and it stll will not recognise the modem and in fact now will not recognise my original modem either!!!

I know the modem works as when plugged directly into my laptop it runs fine and in fact according to speedtest.net is giving download speeds of around 6Mbps instead of the
2Mbps I was getting before still not exactly setting the world on fire but certainly an improvement, or would be if I could use it on anything but that one laptop.

any ideas before I go quietly insane?

It will be no comfort to know that I had exactly the same experience with a new e3231 from 3 but with the TL-MR3240 router. I spent a couple of weeks exchanging emails with TP-Link's support staff. I paid to have the dongle unlocked but in the end they ran out of ideas and I gave up. I bought a TP Link MA180 and it all works perfectly, not ideal I know as I now have a spare unlocked dongle.
Try downgrading the firmware to an earlier version and get the old modem working, unlock the new '3' dongle and sell it on ebay, buy an MA180. Don't bother with support, that really will drive you insane.
Good Luck !
