remember you need a 3g USB modem with builtin wifi hotspot, otherwise it may not work,
the reason why you need hotspot enabled 3g USB modem is, that PTCL router itself cannot install drivers and don’t have built in app to connect 3g USB to internet. it will only forward dialing command to USB modem and modem have to connect by itself.

Lets come to configuration guide.
1. Buy any wifi enabled 3g Modem from Market (mine was chinese brand HSPA+) cheapest i found.
2. connect it to USB port of PTCL router, if it doesn’t fit properly because routers design, then use USB extension cable as i used, you can see in the image below

3. once 3gUSB modem connected properly turn on PTCL router. you will see 2 wifi networks, one for PTCL router and 2nd for 3g Modem . as you can see in the image below my usb modem network name is “3G ufi_9FC” most usb modems have default wifi password: 1234567890 or it will be written on modem box. after entering proper password you will be connected.
