3G "adaptor" for ADSL Router

I was looking for a 3G Router and I was thinking about the ADSL router I have at home and if I can use the same one with the 3G Huawei card that I have. I don't have a landlines because the telecoms company has no infrastructure where I live.   So would it be possible to have some kind of adaptor that connects to the port where the phone line goes in but on the other end have a USB port that you can plug in the 3G card? There would need to be some kind of electronics/software in between I suppose. Any Ideas on how this can be done or if it can be done?

Charing an iPhone 3g with batteries

Hi all, I've been trying to charge my iPhone 3g with AA batteries. I have the batteries, which are producing 6 volts and about 2700 millamps hooked up to a 5 volt, 1 amp regulator. Then I have the output of the regulator hooked up to a female usb, which charges my friend's phone fine (generic samsung). However, when I hook it up to my iphone charger, it doesn't seem like its charging and the charging screen does not come up. Does anyone know what the problem is? Thanks,

Problems with instructables on iphone 3g

Ok, the following bug was experienced on the iphone 3g while i was connected on a 4 bar edge connection. I logged into instructables.com and replied to a comment with superjustin 18. or at least i tried. the first time i tried to reply, the safari browser closed automatically and i was taken back to the home screen before the text box showed up. the second time, i could type a reply and i hit "post comment", but while it was loading, the browser quit again, and i was taken back to the home screen. however, a quick check under my computer shows the comment made it through safe on both counts, when i reopened safari, i was logged out, even when i checked remember could this please be fixed soon? thanks if you can!

Will I still have 3G access if I buy a used Kindle? Answered

It seems like such a simple question, but I can't seem to find a clear answer. I seem to recall reading a while back that the 3G access was tied to the account, not the Kindle, so if you bought a used one the subscription wouldn't transfer. Other places seem to suggest that you have to somehow transfer its registration with Amazon. Amazon doesn't have any answers, they want you to buy a new one. And yes, I know not all Kindles are built for 3G access, let's assume that I'm getting one that is.

iPhone 3GS clip on 100 LED floodlight/flash type thing

As many iPhone users will know the camera is useless in low light, the other night I experimented with a 2 white led torch and with 28 IR leds that are in my night vision cctv camera, the results were reasonable with the 2 white led light. What I want to make is this..... 100 x 15,000 mcd white LED (10 x 10 or 5 X 20 formation ) running from a 1200Mah Nokia BL5-F battery sandwiched between a clear hard-case and another clip on case with a push to make button on what would be the top right corner when when used in landscape mode. The ones I'm looking at consume 25Mah at 3-3.5V, for power I want to use an after-market nokia N95 BL-5F 3.7V Li ion 1200Mah, I think when they are all lit they will draw 2000Mah but as they would only be lit for about 3 seconds a time so this should not stress the battery too badly and last long enoughfor a night out.  I've posted this because I would have just ran them all in series but I have heard there need to be special regulators or something. How can I make this? Can I just run 100 25Mah LEDs in series? Would I need two batteries in series and maybe running 5 sets of 20 with a regulator each? Is 1,500,000Mcd too much? Should I use less LEDs of the same rating? Should I use the same 100 with less Mcd? Any help is greatley welcome and of course there there will be a full instructable with credit to all who helped with information. Thanks WelshDave.

Possible to use iPhone 3Gs screen in another project?

I have an iPhone that suffered some water damage and no longer functions, the screen seems hardly affected so I wondered if it could be reused? Is it even theoretically possible (assuming it still works)? How might I go about testing it? would I be able to make an adapter to some usable connector? Sorry for the far-fetched idea but it seems like it would be very cool to reuse it like this. Thanks, fusorx

Fixing a broken headphone port? (iPod touch 3g)? Answered

       I've had an ipod touch for a little over a year now and the left headphone output is no longer audible.  I believe that it is due to a loose or slightly bent contact inside of my iPod, because if i wiggle my headphone connector in the iPod's female audio jack the left side audio will turn on and off.  I have contacted Apple about the iPod (no longer under warranty) and have been told that the cases for iPod touches are crimped together, and so there is no way for them to open the iPod and replace the port.          Any suggestions as to how i could fix my problem? I've been thinking of using a dental tool to pull the contact that is causing me issues outwards, but decided i would ask around before potentially worsening my port. Thanks! -Geo

SOLAR POWERED IP CAMERA RUN ON 3G MODEM

Hi everyone, im a new member and have a task at hand which is a puzzle to me but would probably be a breeze for u tech savvy bunch :-) Ok heres my dilemma: I have a remote location where i want to setup an IP Camera run on Solar Power. I have purchased a wireless 802.11 ip camera with pan and tilt capabilities as well as an audio in (internal mic) and an audio out (1 x audio line out interface) along with 4 alarm in and out male ports. Heres what i want to be able to do: 1. View the cam remotely via PC/Mobile Phone. 2. Utilise the Pan and Tilt capabilities 3. Have a text message/email sent to me everytime the alarm is activated/motion is detected 4. Be able to have audio in and out 5. Have the camera on standby until motion is detected 6. Have the solar power as the only source of energy for the camera and the camera to be able to run 24hrs a day (standby and in use) 7. Was also wanting the solar power to charge batteries so at night time the cam would still work or if its a cloudy day etc etc Now im thinking that i would need a modem with a sim card in it to work the internet side of things. But how would i go about getting the audio and alarm functions working? I can plug an ethernet cable into a modem and put a sim card into a modem and connect the cam and modem up to a solar power source, but where the heck do i plug the audio and alarm cables into??? In the below link theres specs on the cam as well as pics of the types of connections available on the cam. I wouldnt have a clue about Volts and Watts and amps etc so am stuck at just buying the cam which is here: http://www.aliexpress.com/fm-store/107302/211328538-491571938/Promotion-free-shipping-cctv-wirless-ip-camera-wifi-802-11-b-g-9-language-m-jpeg.html Please help ladies and gents it would be kindly appreciated. Thanking you in advance for your words of wisdom.  p.s. i have scoured the forums and google for this type of setup and have got close but need something custom for my situation and my low level of knowledge in these areas.
