How to Use an AT&T SIM on an HP Chromebook 14

How to Use an AT&T SIM on an HP Chromebook 14

The HP Chromebook 14 offers the best Chromebook alternative accessible gratitude to a huge screen and versatile information worked in. Since it just sudden spikes in demand for T-Mobile out of the case, we trusted that we could trade an AT&T SIM card into the PC, since AT&T and T-Mobile work on a similar portable information innovation. 

The HP Chromebook 14 will run on AT&T's HSPDA+ organize. 

The outcomes give clients access to AT&T's HSDPA+ organize, however not LTE. In my general vicinity T-Mobile just sudden spikes in demand for EDGE, the slowest information association innovation accessible. So this trade makes the HP Chromebook a stunningly better decision for AT&T clients or for individuals who live in moderate T-Mobile land like me. 

To begin, the client needs to get an AT&T SIM card designed for information as it were. That implies a SIM from a telephone won't work. It must originate from a tablet or PC that lone works with information and not with voice. 

I utilized my iPad Air SIM card. AT&T happily added it to my family's shared information plan. I took the iPad Air home and popped the card out of the iPad. You'll require a SIM card apparatus or a firm metal paper cut. Push the apparatus or paper cut into the gap in the SIM card opening on the lower right half of the iPad until it jumps out. Remove the SIM card from the little plastic plate. 

A few clients may get a SIM card from another gadget, similar to an alternate tablet or a PC with portable broadband. Adhere to that gadget's directions for evacuating the SIM card. 

Gadget producers utilize three sorts of SIM cards. The HP Chromebook 14 accompanies an ordinary SIM card from T-Mobile. On the off chance that your tablet or gadget utilizes that sort of card, at that point there's no requirement for the connector. A great many people will require a miniaturized scale SIM card connector to fit an iPad SIM card into the HP's space. Others may require a smaller than expected SIM card connector. A modest connector on Amazon sells for under $1 and works extraordinary. 

Close down the HP by tapping on the notice territory on the base right corner. The Shutdown symbol seems as though a PC power button and sits in the base line of the window that springs up. It's the catch second from the right. Snap it and the PC will close down. 

Put the card in the connector and slide it into the opening on the correct side of the HP Chromebook 14. The card just fits in the connector one way and the connector just goes into the PC one way, so don't drive it. 

In the wake of placing in the new card, boot the PC by squeezing the force button on the console over the delete key. Let it fire up and afterward sign onto the PC. Snap on the warning region once more. 

The framework will attempt to associate with AT&T, however won't work till the client transforms one setting. Snap on the thing just beneath the client account. It may say something regarding a Wi-fi association, such as "interfacing with AT&T." Click it and pick Settings. 

The ChromeOS settings screen will appear. Underneath Internet Connection click on the section checked AT&T in Mobile Data (see above). A drop down box appears. Snap on AT&T and the settings screen beneath shows up. 

In that screen there's another drop down box. It may look unfilled. Snap it and pick the thing that starts "LaptopConnect" and afterward close the exchange box. 

The HP Chromebook should now associate with the AT&T arrange utilizing the SIM card. To test the AT&T association turn off Wi-Fi. To this by opening the notice zone by clicking in the lower right once more. Pick the system association and snap on the Wi-Fi symbol at the base of that spring up box. 

Notice that the above test shows 6.30Mbps download and 1.09Mbps transfer. In our video above it appears over 10Mbps. That is truly useful for 3G. The HP Chromebook just backings HSDPA+ on AT&T. We wish it chipped away at LTE. 

Until somebody comes out with a Chromebook with LTE and a bigger screen, the HP Chromebook 14 offers the best alternative for modestly quick information on ChromeOS.
