UMTS/LTE support via USB router/modem sticks in a container
#1
We recognized a high demand for a 3G/4G/UMTS/LTE support of netPI using USB router sticks plugged into one of the four netPI USB ports.

As of today we can tell you that the current delivered netPI firmware 0.9.1.0 does not support the mapping of those USB devices into containers. We are working right now on a solution and we will be providing you a support for those devices in one of the coming firmware updates quite soon.

Is the use of these devices possible on the newer firmware?

Hello Sebastian,

no for supporting a external USB stick the following kernel modules are missing "option“, „usb_wwan“ und „usbserial“.

I retriggered the development team to insert those kernel modules in the next release of the software.

I cannot tell you the exact timing when it will be included.

With netPI's system software version 1.2.0.0 we have included the "usb_wwan" and "qmi_wan" drivers in order to support a bunge of LTE USB modems.

The source code of the qmi driver tells you which devices in terms of USB vendor ID and device ID are supported (some have comments telling you also the product name in writing)

The list of devices can be read here https://github.com/raspberrypi/linux/blo...qmi_wwan.c plus added the SIMcom 7600e card.

We have tested SIMcom 7600e card and D-Link DWM-222 physically and both work with the new netPI dialog "Cellular" right away.

Thx
Armin
