    IMG_20121105_153712.jpg @ Hackology UserBar - Free Image HostingI recently got PTCL Evo Model EC178  USB Modem CDMA2000 1x Evdo Rev.

    While trying to connect it to Tplink 3G Wireless N Router TL-MR3420 it would throw out an error “Unknown Modem. Click here to configure the modem manually” in the Router Settings Page .

    I tried goggling but there was no Help available on line for this particular version …

    But Eventually got it working , heres how.



    Procedure to Connect your New Evo with TpLink Router :

    – Find out your TpLink Router Hardware Version.

    -My Router had V1 as Hardware Version so i will proceed by going for an upgrade to V1.
    -Download Latest Firmware of V1 or V2.
    -You can see from your Router Admin area (System Tools > Firmware Upgrade)
    -I downloaded the Latest Firmware of V1. (TL-MR3420_V1_120523)

    NOTE: TpLink Site tells you NOT TO UPGRADE FIRMWARE THROUGH WIFI CONNECTION , but i did wirelessly and nothing happened but better to be careful :D

    -After the Download Completes open Firmware Upgrade Page, Press the Browse Button.

    -Select the Bin file from the Downloaded firmware Zip (will need to Extract the folder)

    - Give few minutes and you are good to go ..


    Hope this will solve some of your issues. Ask in Comments for Help.But do remember that you still need to enter the settings of your EVO from the Router Setting Page >> Network >> “3G”
