DrayTek Vigor routers with USB ports can attach a supported 4G, 3G or LTE modem and use that modem for Internet access, as the WAN3 or WAN4 interface.

This guide details how to check that your modem is being detected by the router and configure the router to use the modem for Internet access.

Prerequisites
  • A Vigor Router supporting USB Dongles
  • A compatible USB 3G / 4G Dongle (please see our supported dongle list here
  • The SIM card supplied by your mobile company
  • A suitable contract with your mobile phone company

Test your 3G /4G Modem First!

We recommend that you firstly connect your USB dongle to a PC and test it thoroughly using the instructions provided by the supplier. This is to ensure that it works correctly, and that you have coverage in your area. If all is well, you can then setup the router for use with your 3G/4G device. Don't forget to install the SIM card into the dongle. Disconnect the adapter from the PC when installing or removing a SIM card.
