Is anyone familiar with this interface, i need a new firmware for it. I don't know chipset in it, its a Shenzhen tozed LTE ROUTER ZLT P21. PLS HELP, how will i buy a device with my money and get restricted.
what does the "Version Information" display
Ask the supplier about the Technical details
I see this icon in your graphic above: https://spectranet.com.ng/support
They would definitely be aware of their own product. I would ask them.
Yes they are, but they'd rather i don't enable all bands. It's locked to their network and it's frustrating, their network is bad here, do they expct me to throw it away. I need to unlock the bands. Can you help?
This is an openWRT forum. Why is this random hardware equipment's firmware question relevant here?
I need a compatible firmware to flash my device is why. Please help
Oh! This makes sense!
It seems that this is not related to OpenWrt.
In addition, new router firmware will not perform a carrier (subsidy) unlock on your internal cell card. The intention of this lock is so the carrier profits from the sale and use of the device before it's permitted to be transferred to another carrier. Most carriers will not assist you in unlocking until you've satisfied their contractual obligations.
It seems that you were cheated by the supplier/shipper.
- You've provided no information to help you in this regard.
- If your device is not listed on the Table of Hardware, it is unsupported - and therefore, there's no compatible firmware available from OpenWrt at this time
If you look inside, the LTE modem will almost certainly be a separate module. It has its own CPU and firmware in its own flash chip. This firmware is always closed-source and updates are seldom available.
So like the others said, replacing the firmware for the router / wifi chip will not increase what the modem can do.
I just want it sim free. It feels stupid being held back by a software barrier
If you were not told it was SIM locked, then you can return it.
Otherwise, SIM unlocking is outside the scope and the interest of this forum. There are other forums for that.
You may also look into the option of using a USB dongle if the router supports that.
oh i didnt know that.
Can you refer me to other forums? ThankYou
They would be the only ones that have detailed information on how to unlock their internal cell card.
Can you please shed more light on the usb dongle?
The router seems to have USB port. Some routers support using an external USB dongle (like what you use for PC) to connect to USB post and get internet.
This will depend on the firmware of your router, as it has to support that.
Please, for any further question, refer to your router manufacturer.
Please edit the title as "Need help with LTE ZLT P21" or so.
