LTE modems in v7beta1 / Sierra MC7354 / MBIM support?

I tried a Sierra Wireless MC7354 on the hAP ac^2 via the external USB port, and it did not come up as an LTE interface. The MC7354 did work in PPP mode once configured, same as v6 - but MBIM support was the v7 feature I was waiting for/willing to try... I check the AT configuration of the module, an...

Re: backup internet connection - mikrotik as wifi client and backup over LTE openVPN

Instead of a script, you could try to set the "default route distance" in the LTE APN to something higher than 1, say 2, than the DHCP client used by the Wi-Fi interface. What should happen is if the Wi-Fi client interface gets a DHCP address, it would have distance of 1 (the default), and the Mikro...
