Micromax MMX 310G Data Card Detail

Data Card is the superior PC Data Card solution which delivers wireless internet capabilities to laptops and notebooks, by providing 3G, EDGE and GPRS technologies in a single PC Card package. With the Data Card, you have the freedom to access the internet anytime, anywhere

                          In This Post we discuss about Micromax Data Card

Micromax MMX 310G 3G USB modem and were really pleased with the results of both the software and hardware that came along.
This unit cost only 2200/- Indian Rs and does not have any lock on carrier. You can use it with any carrier worldwide. This modem can be used with any GSM sim card be it Airtel, Docomo or BSNL among various other 3G providers in the country.  It supports HSDPA/UMTS/EDGE/GPRS/GSM. The maximum download speed of this unit is 3.6 Mbps. There are other costlier modems available which offer speeds upto 7.2 Mbps but I don’t think I’ll be able to benefit much from that yet given the current speeds offered by our cellular providers. (As most of the time download & upload speed depend on SIM Service Provider)
You can also use this to read your MicroSD card and as a portable disc drive. Please note that when a card is inserted(opposite side of the SIM tray) the ROM will not appear on your computer.
Note:-  So don’t insert any MicroSD cards while installing.
The second great thing about the software is that it has pre-configured profiles for almost all the network providers worldwide. From AT&T and T-Mobile in the US to Airtel 3G and BSNL 3G in India. You don’t have to worry about the  APN address and phone number to dial etc. Just choose your network from the list and set it as default.
The SIM is installed using a tray which slides out partly. And MicroSD card on the opposite side.

Speed and connectivity:

This area concern most. But the Micromax MMX 310G does fairly well here. I get 1.4Mbps download speeds and 300kbps upload speeds on my BSNL 3G card And 230Kbps in Airtel 2G, but that depends a lot on the signal strength and other factors. I am pretty happy with the aspect and got no complaints. 

Issues With Micromax :

Well, I cant say it had no problems, I had quiet a few..

Firstly, I had an issue with the device being recognized on Windows 7  machine. I had to reboot and reinstall the software everytime i wanted to connect.

Another major issue I had was its Low speed. After using this device for almost 2-3 month, i was only getting 60-70 kbps. Then a friend suggested a trick,which worked like a charm and i started getting proper 3G speeds. So here is that trick just in case you need it:

After you insert the USB modem into the USB slot and the system recognizes the device, do not connect.  In the Modem manager, go to Settings -> Network Mode ->Select  UMTS/HSPA only.
By default it will be dual, change it. The Device manager may crash, dont worry,just start it again.
