Default Add internal 3g with a USB modem? - 04-03-2009, 12:11 PM

Hi everyone,

Sorry if this has allready been answered, but I couldnĀ“t find anything when I searched.

I have a Huawei e169 modem ( and would like to know if thereĀ“s a way to make it internal. Preferably to the WWAN compartment and then maybe use internal usb. If thereĀ“s a way of doing it without soldering and maybe also make it possible to remove easily to change computer, thatĀ“s awsome

You'll have to do at least some soldering to access the usb lines on the WWAN connector pads. Assuming your modem will physically fit, you can attach a female usb socket in the WWAN area that will allow you to plug and unplug your modem. Do a search and you'll find someone who did this with a nano reciever for his mouse.
