4G Wi-fi Advanced II

Answered

I have ascertained the Telstra $g Wi-fi Advanced II is a Netgear Aircard 790S, but need some specific info about it, I haven't been able to find.

We need to use it in our VPN and I know I can configure the Wan address with a static IP, but I'd like to ensure it doesn't go into sleep mode when using USB tethering. Is it possible to disable the "sleep" functionality on this device? We wish to turn off the wi-fi and use it via USB only so it doesn't matter if the screen and/or the wi-fi go to sleep but we require it's wan interface to stay on.

Any info availabe about the VPN pass-through mode. 

Any info would be greatly appreciated as our ADSL2 connection gives speeds of 1.7 to 3 Mbps, whereas we've tested a Telstra 4G device and receievd 28Mbps.

Hi Expresso, for some reason or other there isn't a lot of detailed info for the processes you wish to undertake with that model device, however if you pop along to the following link for the 782S model, you'll find that settings and advance setting for that unit are much the same as for your device.

 

You can adjust the sleep time, VpN pass through etc. which is all explained in this doccument. http://www.downloads.netgear.com/files/aircard/AC782S_Telstra/2400353%20AC782S%20User%20Guide%20rev-...

Thanks for that, but still no info on sleep or time-out settings.

You call it timeout, they call it time out mode. Page 33. You need to go into the WiFi settings.

If this is pre-paid, to arrange the unlocking, and payment of any possible unlocking fee, you'd need to speak to the Telstra Pre-Paid team, which you can do via Live Chat: http://tel.st/nxzt  or on +61 2 9242 0570  both are available 24x7.
