Ease of Use


by A customer on 12/27/2010

Gave as a gift to my father to use with his Verizon Novatel U760 USB modem. Followed the web-based setup wizard, found the dial settings for the modem online, and it was connected. Probably took 10 minutes start to finish, and now their 4 computers, iPad, and Tivo can get online through the 3G connection. Awesome.

Works great with AT&T USB Shockwave (Sierra 308)

on 10/31/2012

I had previously purchased a TP-Link TL-MR3040 to use as a 3G/4G router. Unforunately, that device had firmware issues in which my Shockwave modem would constantly disconnect from the router or the router would reboot periodically (every few minutes). TP-Link's tech support was great and tried to resolve the problem, but they finally admitted that they didn't quite know what was wrong and would need to do a firmware update to address the issue. So I began looking for an alternate solution and came across the Zoom 4506. Granted, it doesn't look anywhere near as nice as the TL-MR3040, and it is a bit larger. In addition, the price is a little higher and the battery capacity is lower by 300mAh. However, it just plain works and works reliably! I am extremely pleased with the performance that I'm getting (~6-7Mbps download on 4G HSPA). In addition, I used it for 3.5 hours straight to stream videos and surf the web, and I did not have one single issue. I never lost connection and never experienced a degrade in bandwidth. All in all, I have to say that I'm pleased with the Zoom 4506.
