    Smart introduces 'Share It' wireless router powered by Bro / Telecoms / March 21, 2009


    MANILA, Philippines - Smart Communications Inc., through its subsidiary Smart Broadband Inc. (SBI), has launched the Smart Bro Share It, the country’s first broadband device built to enable multiple computers in a common area, such as a house, to have affordable and simultaneous but wireless, high-speed Internet access.

    “Desktop computers and laptops have become more affordable, and more families are now able to purchase them for use at home. Smart Bro Share It will allow them to fully and efficiently maximize the use of these computing devices,” said Danilo Mojica, head of Smart’s Wireless Consumer Division.

    Smart Bro Share It allows up to five computers, each given the option to be secured by the main user, to connect simultaneously to Smart’s nationwide HSPA network.

    HSPA is the latest evolution of the GSM technology and is likened to having the high-speed, cable broadband experience delivered right to a mobile device.

    Smart Bro Share It is available with a Plan 999 monthly subscription, which comes with up to 90 hours of Internet access, at speeds of up to 2Mbps in key cities in the country. Usage in excess of 90 hours will be charged 35 centavos for every minute.

    Initial cash-out for the 12-month subscription is P3,499, which includes the one-time payment of P2,500 for the device, plus the first month’s fee of P999. The monthly subscription fee is P999.

    Installing Smart Bro Share It is quick and painless, and instructions are available in every kit. Application for a subscription is likewise hassle-free, and interested individuals just need to present a valid ID with a current address at any Smart Wireless Center nationwide.

    “By increasing the broadband options available to our subscribers, and giving them the freedom and flexibility to access the Internet the way they want it, wherever they are, we hope to eventually position mobile broadband as the gold standard in connectivity,” Mojica said.

    Sa totoo lang, hindi ko ito naintindihan. Ano kaibahan niyan sa standard router?

    its a 3G Modem with Built In Router

    its similart to the Globe Wireless Broadband when it uses 3G as a connection... the only difference its that the SMART can share the connection thru its WIFI


    I'm not sure if its the HUAWEI B932

    like this one

    Instead of buying this you can share your 3g Connection in any Telco Network ( GLOBE/SUN/SMART)

    1. You need a laptop with WIFI CAPABILITY or Desktop with USB wifi Dongle with it.


    2.Go to your Control Panel and select Network and Sharing Center.

    3. In the Tasks menu, click on the link “Set up a Connection or Network”.


    4. In the next window, select the option “Set up a wireless ad hoc (computer-to-computer) network” and click next until you reach the network name and security options.

    5.Type in the name of your new network and select the Security Type.

    Now you can share your wireless connection.

    * Another option is when you have a WiFi capable 3G phone, you can install JoikuSpot and enable internet sharing over WiFi too.

  8. Connecting your Smart Bro Share it to a wireless router will cause high monthly bills cause your connection is metered and an active internet connection does credit in your bill even if you're not using it as long as you leave the unit plugged and on. The standard plan 999 is still the best deal. A non-wireless connection like DSL is even better.

    dapat sysmetrical.. 512 DL and 512 UL.. kung mababa 200 UL ka.. baka nga naka set ang QoS nila sa Canopy mo sa 256...

    na set mo na ba sa 169.254 or sa 10.20.30? para malaman mo ang IP you can use ESN calculator kunin mo lang ESN ng canopy pero kung nasa bubong na.. hehehe mahirap na akyatin.. pero the best way is to use ARP Capturing Packet.. like Ethereal or Wireshark.. i set mo lang ang capture sa ARP only.. then hayaan mo ma read nya ang ARP.. from there you can see a lot of broadcast ... the only way to know your canopy IP is to look for your IP address and then look for to which is broadcasting.. yan ang canopy mo... 10.xx.xx.xx or 169.254.xx.xx

    not the nor the

    ingat lang dami kang matutuklasan hehehehe

    tapos ung hex nya medyo magaba *.*.*.*.*.*
    so lumabas 10.*.*.*.*.* nag trial and error ako eliminate ko ung 2 and 3. then pray ayun thank God naka pasok ako.
    saka kaya ko nalaman na yan palang LLDP ang titingnan, nabasa ko anme nang misis ko dahil sakanya naka pangalan hahah.

    ngayon eto po ang tanong ko.

    MA dedetect ba nila yung settings na gagawin ko?

    pepspeps Member

    Anyone can confirm this? tnx!
  19. duhwho

    duhwho staff Staff Member


    hehehe buti naman nakita mo agad ang IP.. gamit ang packet capturing hehehe

    dehins nila madedetect ang changes walang log kasi ...

    as for the QOS settigns... yup ok na yan.. pero pag ganun pa rin nasa tower na.. pero check mo stats mo..

    ensure that jitter is between 1-4 only, and that the RSSI is not much higher than 55-dB

    if you go to scan the AP.. look for the current AP.. ensure the REGFAIL is either 0 or 1.. para stable..

    now if you can re-scan find an AP that can provide better jitter...
