Default problems connecting to a network

Hi, hope I am in the right forum .By portable I assume that mens mobile routers like the one i recently bought to use with my tablets away from my existing network. Its a Huawei E586 which I acquired via Amazon .
I also bought pre loaded sim and I thought once I attached and connected to my Mac OS X 10.10.1, everything would be plain sailing.It hasn't been. I got as far as having the associated network called My Broadband -e72e (together with the ISP Talk Talk one i use regularly ) available but it doesnt "join".
Every time i try to it tells me that "a problem has occurred ,the webpage couldn't be loaded", which i can understands because an icon associated with My Broadband which sits on my Dock, shows me "Safari cannot connect with the server" every time I click on it, so its effectively useless. I am therefore wondering if its a sim issue.
My tablets needless to say, does not work either and the mobile sim shows "no network" in its window .Anyone got any suggestions? Thanks

Hello Michael. Plug into your new modem/router using a cable, prolly usb. Attach to your puter. Use your browser to access the router control panel at 192.168.1.1. User name and password are both default at "Admin". Follow control panel menu to set up your network SSID and Passphrase (or password). If you can set to permit only specified MAC address, that is most desirable for security. Add your devices MAC addresses. Save and you should be good to go. You also should have choice of security encryptions. Once you are setup wirelessly, you will no longer need the cable. Choose the most secure that works on your network. Then go to a computer router device forum. Cheers!!!

Hi, sorry I missed you. I have gone to find myself, but if I return before I get back, please ask me to wait.
