I use a Vodafone K3505 dongle on Vodafone UK’s network. When I upgraded to Mac OS X Lion, it broke my installation of Vodafone Mobile Broadband. I did a bunch of searching and I finally found what I needed. It was not easy. So, here’s my quick blog post about what you need.
- The latest Vodafone Mobile Broadband, which can be downloaded for Mac or Windows. I found this from a Vodafone eForum post. When you install it, however, chances are that it will use the wrong APN name.
- Correct APN settings. Unfortunately, the instructions at this eForum post are wrong. It says use “PP.INTERNET” as your APN. That’s wrong. Use PPBUNDLE.INTERNET.
I had to find this page full of APN settings and look up Vodafone UK. But it is also wrong. Only a comment lower down is correct. You need ppbundle.internet as your APN name and “web” for the username and “web” for the password.
