Setting the APN and Enabling Mobile Data Roaming

To access data services you will need to ensure your device is set up correctly. Different SIMs and/or locations may require different APNs. These instructions are for the Globalgig SIM.

Once you have activated your Globalgig service, insert your SIM into your device.

Follow the simple instructions below.

Turn the MiFi on and with a secondary device (laptop, phone, tablet) use the SSID and WiFi Key that can be found on the inside of the battery cover and connect the secondary device to the WiFi.

Once connected to the device’s WiFi network, open your internet browser and type the relevant IP address into the web address bar.

192.168.8.1 if the model is E5220, E5330 or E5371

192.168.9.1 if the model is E5577

If your device model is not listed here, please try both IP addresses to see which one works.

To log in enter the default username admin and the default password admin
