APN Settings for Android Tablet

Hello,
I need some information in order to get my Huawei E173 dongle working on my tablet. I have connected the dongle to a PC to ensure that the Sim was registered and I can use it correctly on the PC.
The tablet recognises the dongle is attached, which is a start, however I need the above settings to finish the job. Currently I just get the blue flashing light saying its trying to connect, but obviously with no settings I guess it wont.
I have looked on various forums and there are a variety of different options floating around such as mobile.o2.co.uk. bb.o2.co.uk etc etc
The main things it asks for are
APN
Username
Password
MCC
MNC
This is on PAYG - 1Gb expires in 90 days.
Any assistance is greatly appreciated.
Please use plain text.

Thanks, but this does not work,
First of all there is no option to enter a mobile number, and it requires MCC to be 3 digits, it does not accept any special characters.

Re: APN Settings for Android Tablet

These should be the only settings you need:
Username = faster OR o2web
Password = password
Dial-up number = *99# OR *99***1#
APN = mobile.o2.co.uk
DNS servers if you need em = 193.113.200.201 and 193.113.200.201

Screenshot here:

Dial up number does not exist.
No option for DNS
As stated earlier it asks for MCC number which has to be 3 digits.

These are the standard Android phone settings, but not sure they'll work with the dongle:

I'm sure they come with the software onboard, but you can also get it here:

There's a PDF guide as well which might help.

Re: APN Settings for Android Tablet

Hi

 

This is the correct APN settings for Pay&go Tablets etc....

 

APN: m-bb.o2.co.uk
UN:  o2bb
PW:  password
MCC - 234
MNC - 10

Auth - PAP or CHAP (both work)

 

This should work for any Pay&Go data devices which use the online top up sysem linked bellow...

 

"https://mobilebroadbandaccess.o2.co.uk"

 

Cheers
