Instructions for Etisalat D-Link Mobile Router (DWM-157) installation in Windows 10.

The adapter and the service where provided with no instructions, so I had to google a bit. Maybe it works “automatically” for you. Otherwise, try these steps to get the Etisalat mobile service working. The list below looks quite long, but don’t despair, its not that complicated. I just like using lots of numbers for steps.

  1. Insert SIM card. Snap out the big section and leave the smaller SIM card attached to this bigger adapter section.
  2. Insert device in USB port
  3. Installation doesn’t start automatically? good, it shouldn’t (better security). Now go look for the installer. The device should show up as a USB drive, so look in “This PC”
  4. Start and follow the installer directions, nothing to it. Done, close.
  5. Click on the D-Link Connection Manager on your desktop (Or Programs)
  6. It took one day for Etisalat to make the service available for me. Before I got service, this is what my panel looked like:

After the service was activated, looking better:

  1. But no pages were loading. So there is this APN thing.
  2. On the D-Link manager, click the gears icon (Options)
  3. Go to Profile Management
  4. New
  5. Profile name: Internet
  6. APN: etisalat.ae
  7. Access Number: *99#
  8. User name and Password – leave blank
  9. Authentication: PAP
  10. Save
  11. Make it Default. You may try the Connect button and see if it works. Once connected, your panel will look like this:

Using High Dynamic Range; similar photos but with different levels of HDR, some are more realistic and some more abstract. Its really amazing the amount of detail you pick up using this method.

High Dynamic Range allows for 3 photos to be composed together as one, with the best values of each, so it has detail in the shadows as well as the highlights. Modern Digital SLR’s allow for you to take continuous shots, and using AEB, the camera will take one regular , one under-exposed, and one over-exposed shots. Using special software you can compose these together with amazing results.

I can post a tutorial, just ask.

T-Mobile  announced its new Bobsled brand, a Facebook application that will let you make free, “one-touch” calls to any of your friends around the world. Facebook is apparently just the beginning for the brand, though. T-Mobile says Bobsled is aimed at “bridging traditional telecommunications and Internet-based voice and data services,” and it says it plans to expand the service in the near future to include video chat, the ability to place VoIP calls to mobile and landline phones, and even offer applications on both smartphones and tablets “regardless of the carrier that powers such devices.” No word on how soon any of that might hit, but you can try out the Facebook application for yourself right now at the link below.

T-Mobile has just announced it’s temporarily shuttering the recently launched VoIP service. A statement released on Bobsled’s Facebook profile revealed it is “voluntarily and temporarily suspending service” of its week-old app to “ensure that the Bobsled experience is clearly differentiated and is not mistaken for a Facebook created property.”  No word yet on when the service will be back up and running, but this doesn’t bode well for T-Mo’s foray into the VoIP market.

Android Central spotted a tweet from Direct TV, confirming the news that some Android handsets are going to see HBO Go Streaming service activated on May 2nd.  There is no word as of yet as to which handsets will see the service, but you can probably guess that it will be the newer, higher end Android handsets (HBO Go requires 3G).
