Zoom 3G Router

IMG_0101

Wow why didn’t we do this ages ago whilst on Gypsy Rover?  We now have both computers connected to the internet through our own wireless network.  (Thanks Graham) I bought this through Amazon prior to leaving for New Zealand and it arrived while I was on the other side of the world.  Now up and running I was able to place the security on it guided by my son in New Zealand so anyone would need to connect with a password only. It can run for 4 hours or so on its rechargeable battery and either 240volt or 12volt chargers.

Fast and easy to use with our existing dongle I am most impressed.

Hi Lesley
Yes difference is an understatement. Glad I put security on it though.

Hi Dot,

I went looking for the Zoom on Amazon but they will only ship inside the USA according to the site. Where did you buy it?

Hi Tom

Not sure if they will post to you or not.
