I have a Huawei e3372 153 stick version which is able to work with openwrt after some package installations...
Now I need to plug this modem on an Asus rt ac66u modem. But there is no internet connection. In the past, I make that run with a e3372 hilink router. I think this asus router cannot run ndis modem.
My question: does anyone know if it is possible to install hilink firmware on this USB key and the way to do that? I think it is possible after having saw the opposite installation, and a lot of comments.
It would be nice to have a complete description on w7 because I am not at home for the moment!
Sorry can´t say for sure..
But I can tell you I own a H version, with Stick mode provided from the ISP, never needed to convert this one ( marked as H ) but with v21.x firmware, maybe was my ISP request from huawei. But in other hand, I got some E3372 with S marked but with Hlink firmware v22. ( got them from some aliexpress dealer )
In fact the ones marked as S ( from aliexpress ), I just follow the H steeps ( balong usb loader ) to get it in stick mode.
These 2 are mine, never been modified, H and S version marked on sticker, but both are in S mode from ISP, pretty same external case, one black other white case.
it's true, I saw that, and it is ambiguous. E3372s with S brand and H firmware and vice versa.
I would try the 'Balong' manipulation but I'm afraid of wasting my time!
I have another RT AC56U router that accepts newer ASUSWRT Merlin FWs than the RT AC66U. I will try the e3372 Stick on it.
But I read also somewhere that older versions of ASUSWRT Merlin worked with the S, but not the newer ones. And I read the opposite too...
