One major advantage that Azsky G1 dongle is presently having over liberty star decoder is that it the manufacturers provides for a way or means of editing the APN also known as Access Point Name. As easy as the process to do this is, the tool is not easily accessible but in this article i will give you the link to download the APN ;Loader for G1 GPRS ADAPTER.
I have explained in full details in my article here how G1 GPRS ADAPTER works. It is a device that is plug via RS 232 interface of a receiver to watch some more satellite TV. mostly active in this Satellite estern part of africa..However if your device stopped communicating with a receiver or maybe for one reason or the other, you want to change your APN, this tool (loader) is required to perform some repairs
The tool is designed to to confirm the level of what is wrong with your GPRS Adapter after you confirmed other GPRS Adapter is working but yours is not working. this tool allow you to set APN and service account on your GPRS Adapter.
Access Point Name is the name of a gatetway between a GPRS or 3G etc. mobile network and another computer network, frequently the public internet.
to short cut our way we need MTN,airtel,etisalat and glo settings to fill in the loader and load it in your GPRS Adater this simply determine the sim that the GPRS Adapter will prefer to work with better.
MTN NIGERIA APN: web.gprs.mtnnigeria.net or if you want to use MTN NIGERIA BLACKBERRY PLAN:APN : blackberry.net
Username:web PASSWORD: web
AIRTEL APN: internet.ng.airtel.com
ETISALAT APN: etisalat
GLO APN: glosecure or if you use a bundle it is APN: gloflat
Username: gprs USERNAME : flat
password: gprs PASSWORD: flat
you fill it correctly in to this tool (loader) and load it to your GPSR Adapter. If it return setting successful good plug it to your receiver and it should work if still not work the GPRS Adapter is not bad completely yet all you need is a receiver that can connect to it since your PC can load the APN setting to your GPRS Adapter sucessfully.
i recommend strong 4669x, strong 4922, 4930, Tlink 900, dreambox, s10,x3,x4 etc it will work.
if after filling the loader correctly and load it but the process was not successful with this response: communication failed. there are some IC inside that most have burnt mostly caused by higher voltage power Adapter of 12 voltage. while the standard voltage require from the Power Adapter is 5 voltage. in this case i suggest you to give it out to the specialist in this repairs to avoid consistent IC explosions from your Hand.
Caution: don’t pay for your G1 Adapter repair in this case if not confirmed the problem is solved. you can negotiate the repairs
Service Account it can be explained in different meanings base on each understanding. but here is my: is an identity of every devices that is required to log into a server sucessfully. this permision must be from your G1 Adapter service provider so that your G1 Adapter Account will be valid to login sucessfully. but this is process is required now untill you need to renew your Account. is not much important at this moment.
