    Here is a simple method to use a SIM card in one Vodafone Internet key. The test was performed on a key ZTE K3806-Z but it should also work on other Vodafone and non-Vodafone keys, and even with non-Vodafone cards TIM.

    The solution explained below works with the 7 and 32 BIT Windows 64 operating system and will allow you to recognize the vodafone key as a modem:

    • Insert the internet key and install its software containing the Vodafone Mobile Broadband plus drivers of the Vodafon stick itself.
    • Remove the key from the door USB.
    • Going up Control Panel> Uninstall a Program and search for Vodafone Mobile Broadband software to uninstall it.
    • Insert the key again into the same USB socket e don't run its installer, Windows will already see it as a Modem.
    • Now any SIM present in the key will start and hook the signal.
    • If the SIM asks for the PIN enter it by clicking on Connect.

    At this point, to connect with your telephone operator you will need to enter his APN (Access Point Name), if Windows does not ask for it, you will need to go to the key Settings and enter it: for example, for TIM the APN is this: ibox.tim.com. If required, also enter theaccess number the code is * 99 # (it is valid for all telephone operators).



    In case the key is connected but you can't access the web pages try restart your PC and change USB port.
