Troubles with Huawei 3372-153

Hello,
Today i installed my Fritz4040 with the newest Openwrt. But i have troubles with my 3372-153 with 21.x (Stick mode)

There are several configuration Guides (3g,LTE, HSDPA , qmi,ppp...) for openwrt, but i downt know, whicht will or shoud work in my situation. Now i am afraid of having an Driver conflict fromm installing a lot of drivers. But it could also be only an configuration error.

dmesg says:
usb 3-1: new high-speed USB device number 3 using xhci-hcd

after restart dmesg shows:
dmesg | grep USB

but no ttyUSB appearing.

Thanks for Help.

is modeswitch installed ?

Use hilink configuration, it works perfectly with couple of packages (usb-modeswitch, kmod-usb-net-cdc-ether).

are there port forwardings and other things also working with hilink?

There are usually no such settings in the UI.

But you're probably behind a CGNAT anyway.

New State:

other Stick (flashed by myself, sure noHilink) works:

My configuration:

config interface 'LTE'
	option proto 'ncm'
	option service 'preferlte'
	option pdptype 'IP'
	option apn 'webapn.at'
	option ipv6 'auto'
	option dialnumber '*99#'
	option delay '5'
	option device '/dev/ttyUSB0'

dalay option was nessesary for making in working

The Stick is showing a blue light, but the speed are only 20 Mbit/s (upload 4Mbit/s) could it be that the stick is in an wrong mode?


The not working Stick (hilink) shows:

also no results for usbmode

no ttyUSB devices

This stick show on Linux Mint an qmi_wwan device and comes up with an dhcp device , browser comes up with gui -> so it is definitly HiLink.
Can i use this device without his own NAT or it is necessary to flash a NonHilink?

I try to understand the different modes of the sticks, how to recognize which mode is active and if necessary change it.

Thanks for your help.

non-HiLinks are called 3372s - read here: Rock-solid 24/7 LTE stick

the 3372h can be flashed into an s.

Wrong. s and h are different devices (models)
HiLink support is available for both models by using the corresponding firmware (ver. 22.x)

i thought only the SW was different, I stand corrected.

Hi.
Look here:
https://forum.openwrt.org/t/e3372-change-mode/126590/9
My own experience with E3372(S/H)-153 devices

Sorry, I do not know.

Hello,

I was able now do switch manually from 3g to 4g by this command:
AT Commands
AT^SYSCFGEX="03",3fffffff,2,4,7fffffffffffffff,,

Speed is now 25 up and 10 Mbit/s down.
Openwrt offers for NCM configuration the LTE option whicht seems not to work in this case. Next step is to look how to persist this "to LTE" swich for next restart...

correction: seems to be persisted automatically from modem.

Thanks for all hints till now and later
