(HUAWEI SmartAx MT882), with Microsoft Windows VISTA

I would like help from someone as to how to configure my Modem (HUAWEI SmartAx MT882), with Microsoft Windows VISTA to run on USB port.
The modem runs on the ethernet port very fine but I'm not able to install and locate its driver to run it through USB.
Please provide me some clue/solution to get it solved. It make it impossible for me to simultaneously be connected to my broadband connection & to be connected on LAN with other devices, as I've only 1 Ethernet port in my Laptop.
Please Assist.
Thanks to all of U who're reading this.

To install the modem in Vista, you don't need the CD. Because that Cd won't work in vista. They says it on the letter. You type in in the address bar, and press enter. If it asks for user name and password, type in admin for both user and pass. Then click on basic, then Wan settings, then click on the pencil icon on the right side. Then type in your username and password your ISP gave you. Not the username and password admin. Its different. Username will be For example if my land phone number is 02380123456 the username will be Password will be given in the letter when you join the broadband company for example Talktalk.
After you typed your username and password, click on the magnifying glass icon on the bottom and on the inactivity timeout(mins) put dots on always on. Then click on submit button on the small window. Then click submit again on the larger window. There! you have done it.

Hi, Sorry but after flipping the net on its back it is clear that your in a bit of a spot. There is plans of introducing Vista Driver for this widely used modem. You might just need to grin & bear it - and maybe buy an additional PCMCIA ethernet card, to be connected to the net & LAN at same time.

According to their manual for the MT882 this product wasn't shipped with drivers.

Have a Huawei smartAx X MT882, and i dont have the driver to conect to a usb, have window vista

Unfortunately, Huawei indicates that the MT882 does not function with Vista, and apparently they will not update the equipment to do so. Please see

I also searched the MS Update Catalog (a huge technical resource) just in case we could find something close that might work. No luck - the only Huawei items listed are drivers for Ralink wireless LAN cards.

Sorry for the bad news, but at least now you have a definite answer. It would seem that you may need to uprade to a new router. Please don't "shoot the messenger" - in other words, we obviously can't do anything to correct a situation like this. We can only provide you with an accurate, timely response. Thank you for using and rating FixYa!
