How to configure D'link pocket router dir-506l with Reliance netconnect+ dongle

Yesterday I bought D'link pocket router dir-506l. I bought it to use with my Reliance netconnect+ dongle (Huwei EC1262).

D'link pocket router dir-506l comes with battery backup so it allows me to connnect to my Reliance netconnect+ from virtually anywhere.

I could configure dir-506l easily from my mobile web browser.  But I found there is no option to configure 3g/4g networks. Similar to traditional routers this router has options to configure with dhcp/pppop/static/.... networks only.  I've searched internet about the device support for Reliance Netconnect+. I found many others are in the same situation as mine and there is no solution.
Then I had a thought about upgrading to latest firmware.  I've searched for latest firmwares for this product.  My device has come with a firmware dated back to 2012 and 2.13 is the exact version.
While searching internet I found a website http://www.dlink.com.au/tech/download/download.aspx?product=DIR-506L which has latest firmwares released Upto 08/july/2013 and the latest is 2.15 version. There also I found compatible device list.  In compatible devices I found Huwei EC1261. This is not exactly my device.  But I thought to go with 2.15 version.  I've downloaded it and upgraded it by connecting to the device through Wi-Fi even though recommended  for firmware upgrade is through wired connection. Once upgrade is completed I've reset the device to factory settings by pressing reset button for 10 seconds.  After that I connected from my Mobile phone to the device through Wi-Fi. Now I am able to see 3g/4g mode in the internet settings menu.  I've selected this mode and selected manual configuration. There I configured my Reliance netconnect+ details. Once these settings are saved the router rebooted and connected to the internet.

    1. if dongle light is blinking, it means router is detecting the dongle. you've to configure your router to work with your dongle. STEP1: start your router without dongle. STEP2: connect your PC to the router WIFI signal. STEP3: Access the router configuration wizard from your PC browser using the url: http://dlinkrouter.local/ STEP4:exit the welcome default setup wizard STEP5: select internet tab from the left side menu. STEP6: click on manual internet connection setup STEP7: select my internet connection type as 3g/4g. Then you will see all the menu options as shown in the above screenshot. Do all those settings and save them. Router will save them in a minute and restarts itself. Now it can work with your dongle.

    1. I've flashed my firmware from Australia Dlink website. During that time the website mentioned all the world wide compatible dongle chip set models for the flashed firmware. The list used to be as big as 50 models. Now they have pruned the list to very few models, might be very specific to those available in Australia. ftp://files.dlink.com.au/products/DIR-506L/REV_A/SetupGuides/compatibility_list.pdf

    2. Hi Srini,

      Thanks for all the details. I was encourage and purchased DIR506L after reading your blog. Now trying to setup my reliance netconnect+.

      I have following doubts/questios. It would be great if you can comment on it.
      1. What password are we suppose to put in password field. Is it netconnect+ modem username? Because netconnect+ uses username as password. I was bit confused by seeing 5 character password in your screenshot.
      2. Do we need to mention any PIN. I was getting a message at one of the step to enter optional PIN. The message was: "Enter PIN which you need for accessing your modem". Is there any PIN require to access reliance netconnect+ modem?
