Using the ASUS RT-B13U with Tata DOCOMO eStick

To setup the router for Tata DOCOMO eStick set the following values and it should work. You don't need to do anything else.

3G/3.5G USB Adapter
APN service(optional)
Username

I bought the router from flipkart and it took 3 weeks to get it. I had posted this a review but flipkart removed it.

I will try and post what I had written in the review. They had a reason to remove the review as it was projecting flipkart in a slightly negative light even though I had no intentions to do that.

Had ordered the router on the 6th of September. As luck would have it, it went out of stock the very next day. Can't blame flipkart for it but when I ordered it it was in stock. It took 2 weeks to get it delivered. I received it on 21st. I tried to set it up the whole evening but unfortunately the USB on that device was defective. I finally figured that out once I had plugged in every USB storage device that I had. Called up flipkart and it was returned back in 1 working day. Unfortunately for me the device was still out of stock so flipkart gave me store credit. 

When it was finally in stock I was still not sure if buying this router would be a right decision or if none of my devices were compatible with this device.I eventually took a risk and ordered the same device again. Got the delivery in 2 days and was up and running in less than 5 minutes. 

As far as the device is concerned it is really worth the price. Have not been able to use any other USB functions as I am using a USB modem. Will try and buy a usb hub and see if it works with it.
