Vodafone LogoA Huawei / Vodafone K3765-HV mobile broadband modem USB stick is easily installed on Windows 8 and Windows 8.1. Just use the following work around to get your Huawei / Vodafone K3765-HV running on Windows 8 and Windows 8.1.

Finally, if the Huawei / Vodafone K3765-HV is unlocked and voice functions are enabled, this modem USB stick is utilizable as a GSM Gateway on FRITZ!Box models which are capable for mobile broadband modem USB sticks, e.g. on a FRITZ!Box 7390.

I conducted the installation with the following set up:

  • Mobile Partner for Windows (software version 23.009.05.03.1014, dated 2013-03-25)

The work around on Windows 8 and Windows 8.1 is as follows :

  1. Download and install the Huawei ‘Mobile Partner for Windows‘ software (version dated 12/05/2012).
