OpenWrt 17.01.4 and UMTS STICK

Hey,

i need some ideas or help. I will use my old Archer C7 with OpenWRT 17.01.4 and a Surfstick to get a internet connection. I followed this guid
https://openwrt.org/docs/guide-user/network/wan/wwan/3gdongle

Stick and Sim are detected

root@OpenWrt:~# gcom -d /dev/ttyUSB1

I write in /etc/config/network the wan interface, but nothing happens after a reboot. I have no idea what i can try now.

config interface 'wan'            
        option pincode '1234'     
        option apn 'internet.eplus.de'
        option username 'eplus'       
        option proto '3g'             
        option password 'internet'    
        option dialnumber '*99#'      
        option device '/dev/ttyUSB1'  
        option service 'umts_only'    
        option delegate '0'           
        option ipv6 '0'

Some help would be nice, thanks

Did you try the ifup wan && logread to check for possible errors?

In my case this configuration didn't work and I had to experiment with the other protocols. I ended up with the following for my Huawei e3372

network.LTE=interface
network.LTE.mode='preferlte'
network.LTE.apn='internet.t-mobile.cz'
network.LTE.dialnum='*99#'
network.LTE.proto='ncm'
network.LTE.ifname='wwan0'
network.LTE.device='/dev/ttyUSB0'
network.LTE.ipv6='auto'
network.LTE.metric='40'
network.LTE.disabled='0'
network.LTE.delay='15'
network.LTE.delegate='0'
network.LTE.pdptype='IP'
network.LTE.auto='0'

You may want to use auto=1 to bring it up on boot.

When i enter this command nothing happens in the log. And i dont know why ?

And in which file are your settings

Thanks for answering, maybe we can find the solution together

What is the output of ifstatus wan ?
These are the options of the wan interface in /etc/config/network
The output is from uci, but you get what needs to be done.

root@OpenWrt:~# ifstatus wan
{
	"up": false,
	"pending": false,
	"available": false,
	"autostart": true,
	"dynamic": false,
	"proto": "none",
	"data": {
		
	},
	"errors": [
		{
			"subsystem": "interface",
			"code": "NO_DEVICE"
		}
	]
}
root@OpenWrt:~# 

Can you try with ttyUSB0 ?

I change the Settings but nothing Happens.

gcom -d is only working with ttyUSB1

root@OpenWrt:~# vi /etc/config/network 
root@OpenWrt:~# ifstatus wan
{
	"up": false,
	"pending": false,
	"available": false,
	"autostart": true,

	"errors": [

It seems weird to me that dmesg shows every time a different ttyUSB.
Can you post the following:
opkg list-installed; lsusb; lsmod
lsusb needs usbutils to be installed to provide output. install it with opkg update; opkg install usbutils

I have no build a new OpenWRT 19.07.1 and install all packages which i think

here is the output of opkg list-installed; lsusb; lsmod

I wasn't able to find any working configuration for your modem. However I remember from when I was trying to make my Huawei e3372 work, that the 3g protocol wasn't working and I had to try the rest. You can try your luck with wwan which should autodetect. Otherwise try the ncm and qmi manually. My config is for ncm.

i can try it with a other Surfstick ?

This is the second UMTS Stick which i have...Any idea or tutorial for configure this stick ?
But with this Stick i get no /dev/ttyUSBx device and i don't know why

Plug in and set it up on a Linux desktop or laptop and confirm that it can reach the Internet. Then check the log on that machine to see which drivers are in use.

And i don't understand this message and if i click on install protocol...
In the filter is written "luci-proto" but there is no package with this

Install luci-proto-ncm and luci-proto-qmi.

I have Install it already but nothing change, i Restore now and flash the image new

WWAN and NCM is also broken on master
It gives the same error as above ("Network device no present") in LUCI

Since you are at it, upgrade to a more recent version, 19.07.1 is the latest stable.

Ok now i have install a fresh OpenWrt 19.07.1

I think i install all required packages

Question and problem
A) the Huawei USB device is not attached to any ttyUSBx why ?
I read in other threads that i musst use usb-modeswitch and i finde the config file in /etc/usb-mode.json but i don´t know exactly what i must write in it to get the device working

B) gcom -d /dev/ttyUSB1 and gcom -d /dev/ttyUSB3 is allsow working.... why ?

root@OpenWrt:~# gcom -d /dev/ttyUSB3

Enter PIN number: 1234

Does i need for this stick modeswitch to ?

Edit now it works and i dont now exactly why..... i reboot the System with the following settings and it works. I changed nothing more but the settings in /etc/config/network

config interface 'wan'
        option ifname 'eth0.2'
        option delegate '0'
        option proto '3g'
        option username 'eplus'
        option pincode '1234'
        option apn 'internet.eplus.de'
        option ipv6 'auto'
        option service 'umts'
        option password 'eplus'
        option pppd_options 'noipdefault refuse-chap refuse-mschap refuse-mschap-v2 refuse-eap'
        option device '/dev/ttyUSB3'
        

Is there a way to see in the interface signal strength because for now i have some lags when i ping exampley google.de

I am glad you got it up and running!

Most likely yes. I don't remember the procedure I followed exactly. Maybe @bmork can help us here?

You can see it as Signal Quality in the gcom command or comgt -d /dev/ttyUSB3 sig for one line. Mine is at 21,99 and connects with LTE.

Most likely it is some kind of alias. Mine is also working for both 0 and 1.

21,99 is what ? Is there i list which explane the numbers ? I read in documentation "1 is the lowest detectable signal and 31 a very good signal"

i have 13,99 it is only a UMTS stick, but what means this egde oder 3G ?

Thanks at all for helping me, some times it is enought to discuss about problems to finde a solution
