The easiest way to buy MiFi cheap and free is through the Internet.
We advise you to use Amazon since it allows you to have a wide variety of models and prices to find the one that best suits your budget, gives you all the information about the product you are going to buy and most importantly, the guarantee offered .
You also have the option to buy it second hand (although we advise you if you do not understand a lot about these devices do not do it) or if you are one of those who still do not trust buying online you can find it in electronic and computer stores.
What is the price of MiFi?
The price of a MiFi varies greatly depending on the model (2G, 3G, 4G, …) and the brand you buy.
For example, the MiFi Huawei E5331 that we recommend costs € 45. At this price you should add the cost of the SIM card, which will vary depending on the country.
Even so, I think that Huawei option is a cheap MiFi and more than enough to have your ideal portable WiFi rental device to connect your PC.
How does it work?
We will explain how it works based on the operation of our MiFi Huawei e5331 model.
All the models of MiFi have practically the same start-up and so that you can understand it better we will tell you step by step what you have to do to get your own best portable WiFi network
1.Find the rate or data plan that best suits your needs
The first thing you have to do first of all to start using your MiFi, is to acquire a SIM card in a telephony establishment. If you travel abroad, it would not hurt to take a look at the pricing plans and data rates that companies in your destination country have before arriving there.
2. Load your MiFi router
Once you have your card, you must charge the MiFi with two options: cable + transformer to the current / USB cable to connect to the computer or external battery.
3. Deactivate the PIN code of the SIM card
When you have it loaded, the next step is to deactivate the PIN code of the SIM card that you have bought in the foreign country. This is very important since if the SIM card is not unlocked, the MiFi will not work. You can ask at the establishment where you buy the card that you deactivate the PIN code or you can do it yourself from your smartphone or tablet, since as a general rule you should be able to do it, by entering:
SIM card lock / unlock.
4. Insert your SIM card in your MiFi device
Once the PIN code has been deactivated, the first thing to do is remove the back cover and the battery to insert the SIM.
Under the battery you will find the slot where to place it.
5. Enter the Name of the WiFi (SSID) and the WiFi key (WiFi KEY)
As a general rule, the name of the pocket WiFi japan network, the SSID (Service Set Identifier) of the device and the Wi-Fi key (WiFi KEY) will be located behind the cover and depending on the model, also in the battery compartment.
Place the battery again and if you have not pointed the SSID and the key, leave the back cover unset.
6. Turn on the free MiFi modem
Press the power button for the MiFi to start the WiFi signal.
7. Connect your device to the WiFi network created by MiFi
Take your smartphone, tablet or PC and look for the available wireless networks.
