Today’s attempt to use the USB modem GlobeTrotter Connect with my MacBook failed. I had the right PIN and the right software. But couldn’t connect.
The preferences revealed a dialog box with input fields for an APN, a username and a password. I checked the help. There was no explanation what APN stands for… and whether it’s required or not.
And I was offline so i couldn’t search either.
APN stands for Access Point Name.
The user manual can be downloaded here.
But I don’t know if that’s the missing puzzle piece I need to connect. Or if it’s optional.
