I am trying to set up my rpi with its own internet usig a 4g USB Dongle: (ZTE Australia > Products > MF823). I have read many articles about it but haven't found anything current so not sure if they apply to the B+.
Setting up the 4g dongle was very simple, I installed usb-modeswitch, switched form USB to ethernet, added some basic config
to the interfaces file, rebooted and it worked....It was a nice surprise.
Here are the questions I have,:
1) Will the B+ have power issues with the 4g Dongle, specs say it draws 700mA, im using 2.1A power supply? (do I still need a powered hub)
2) I read in many places that ppp and wvdial although I believe my dingle has a built in dialer. How do I confirm this?
3) If I send the device to a location that has 3g only, will everything still work the same ?
Thanks in advance.
