Is Idea NetSetter USB realy gives speed of 247 kbps ......
Idea Netsetter info i never saw in news paper and TV. Thanks amol for posting information.

TATA Indicom High Speed HSIA Photon USB Modem realy gives 256 kbps speed it's on 3G technology and only for Chennai. It's not plug 2 surf.

110 kbps is also good speed compare to reliance Usb modem it give 50 to 60 kbps speed

Idea having Network problem in Mumbai ? How they will provide speed on NetSetter USB ....I think you not checked netsetter speed while purchasing. Thats your mistake.
In mumbai i am getting minimum 120 kbps speed on idea netconnect.

All people check the product before purchasing. what about you ?

Idea rocks

Who says idea gives speeed of 156 kbps only??? that is crap. Are you using the modem? I am a user of the modem and infact it very well and consistently gives speeds of 236 kbps and above.

I am here only to know if someone knows how to do portforwarding on the huawei USB modem that idea is giving out.

If yes then please post your replies here. No marketing about tata or airtel or any other damn company.

Re: Idea launched NetSetter USB

Can someone from Mumbai pls post thier experience with Idea USB Internet... does it slow down during morning or late nights?
Does it give constant speed?
Do you get disconnected frequently due to network ?

I have heard Idea is the best in Mobile Networking so far. ....

Re: Idea launched NetSetter USB

I have seen and tested IDEA NETSETTER USB.. its Very SLow --> Malad West Mumbai Area

IF you ever want to see how reliable is a connection and the speed of any ISP Try to open www.GoDaddy.com and check how much time it takes to load.

I was told by the lady at the IDEA showroom that on paper the speed is 256kbps but in real they provide maximum 110kbps that too depending on network tower and conditions in YOUR area. So if it is working fine in the IDEA STORE... that does NOT mean it will work fine at YOUR RESIDENCE or OFFICE. and people who stay on 1-2-3rd floor, just be careful, coz. if there are long towers and buildings nearby then you will regret getting no proper speed.

unsure Re: Idea launched NetSetter USB

Hi,
PLEASE HELP…I purchased Idea Net setter E1550 on October 2010. I just hated the product because of the speed and the costly offers. Then the next month I unlocked my Net setter successfully by myself. After that I was very happy with the product and I continued using it with Aircel sim with low cost GPRS plans. Everything was working fine until March 2011. Then on April suddenly my net setter stopped connecting to internet. That is Mobile Partner connects to the internet and shows the status of “Data Connection Established”. But on my Windows 7 it shows Internet not connected and shows a caution symbol on the Network notification area in the taskbar. I reinstalled Windows 7 on my computer several times and tried but again the same I got. I even locked the Net setter and unlocked it again, and update the firmware also, but all in vain. SOMEBODY PLEASE HELP.
