diff firmware and hardware
type A made by sagem i think, and the B huawei
i would disagree with you john (im probably being a bit pendantic) and say there are differences in performance due to issues with the type A and some ive found in B
type A had wifi issues for me, and as reported in forums port issues etc
type B doesnt resolve name to ip on my lan for linux machines at least doesnt from my puppy linux laptop
Just spoke to India and they say they send out Type A as had a batch problem with Type B even more confussed!! What is the answer?
what exactly is the answer u are looking for?
the questions was what are the differences
do u want the actual hardware specifc differences?
the answer i gave was
one is made by sagem one by hauwei
they have different firmware and hardware to achieve the same results, not necessarliy with the same success imo
u can read/search the forums for the issues people have/had with the type A
and for that matter any with type B, as i pointed out the name resolution one for me with puppy linux.
my wifi issue on type A of extremely low throughput of kbps from lan to lan was solved by replacing with type B
note, before updates on the hh3, type A wifi was fine, so imo someone borked the firmware
wifi to wan was fine but wifi to lan was really poor
u can read my experience here
most posts seem to feel the B is better, others have had no problems with the A, but there are lot complaining about the type A
im not sure id believe what tech india said, maybe someone who knows for sure can say wether there was a batch issue with the type B and if the type A is discontinued or not.
try the one u get and if it works for you then all is ok 🙂 if its an A and u have issues with it insist on another replacement type B or if they cant say u can def get a B then keep reporting any type As as a fault and ask for replacement again and again till u get a B or BT sort it
