Planned support for ZTE MF626 HSDPA USB Modem

Are there any plans for support for the ZTE MF626 HSDPA USB Modem. The device is badged by Telstra in Australia and is in common usage as a general purpose USB modem. Reading between the lines it appears similar to the other existing MF62x devices. This would be a readily available and good low cost...

Thanks for that Normis,

The price point of the RB433UAH & a low cost USB 3G unit will be devastatingly effective!!!

Re: 3G Mini-PCI (Not PCI-Express)

After speaking to a few 3G card disti's the consensus is that mini-pci is dead in new designs and they are moving to support mini-pci-e instead.

Re: RB133 Serial Port Baud rate - history repeats?

This seemed like a trivial question and yet it is never answered...

Any clues?

It would appear that the baud rate setting is locked at 115K by RouterOS, strange given that the start-up rate at boot is able to be changed.

Is the assumption correct? if so is there a reason for this?
