HOW TO USE OPTUS PREPAID SIM WITH ZTE MF60April 5, 2017 / by Marco / Categories : Hardware, Technology
In a previous post, I talked about how to unlock the ZTE MF60 for free. Quite a number of people found this useful and I’m glad it helped them. I recently had to use the ZTE MF60 with an Optus Prepaid Mobile Broadband SIM and the status of the modem kept saying DISCONNECTED, just like this picture:
The solution was to change the APN settings in the MF60. To do this, you need to login to the modem by firstly connecting to it via WiFi. Then use the IP address 192.168.0.1 and enter the password (default is admin). Once logged in click on Settings – 3G Settings
Click on APN Settings
You will notice that Auto APN is selected and the APN it detected is internet. We need to change this so select Manual APN.
Click on Add
Add the APN settings as shown below. Note the APN is preconnect and the authentication set to PAP.
Click on Save then Set Default
Once saved you should see the following:
Click on the home button and then click connect
The status will now change to Connected
