Huawei E3131 3G USB modem

Just the other day, I re-contracted my mobile broadband line with my telco and as a result, I was given this Huawei E3131 3G modem. I had a rude shock when I got back home though. I found out that my modem was not compatible with my TP-LINK TL-MR3020 3G mini router. Bloody hell. Lucky my old Huawei E1550 3G USB modem is still functioning well. I went online and there is no help to find at all…in English. Came across a few sites written in all kinds of other languages other than English. I would use Google translate to translate it but some of the steps involve re-flashing the ROM on my little router so the instructions must be precise for me to do so. Oh well. Hopefully there will be an update to the TP-LINK firmware for my router and then it will start recognising this new 3G USB modem. But until then, my old Huawei will have to suffice.

    Hello Alan,
    Any luck with the Modem?
    I am also facing the same issue. TP-LINK TL-MR3020 not working with Huawei E3131.
