damm, I've returned the product already, but thx for posting this guide, I'm sure it might have helped a lot!!See this:
I hope this help you
I've returned my one, and got a couple of red K3772-Z and now I'm happy , because I don't have time to struggle for too long with dodgy/not wanna work devices!I have the exact same problem as Ehman.
Using a K4201-z Dongle when I plug it into the USB port no PPP-client is automatically generated and when I manually generate one and attempt to connect to USB1 and then view the info on the dongle I am presented with the error "Couldn't start, unable to acquire port (6)"
I am using the latest version of both firmware and software (6.10) when the K4201-z is supposedly compatible with 6.8. When walking through pliskens link here I can get through to the section about when plugging in the device and the LTE interface appearing. Everything prior to this stage is either set-up automatically in the same was as described or works (i.e. can view the dongle in System > Resources > USB and is represented as shown in the link.
So I am out of luck, have tried contacting the retailer and they were no help so it is either find help here or contact Mikrotik with the support file and see what they can do to fix the problem. So any further ideas about how to get the K4201-z and RB750UP to work together?
Yeah, Ideally that is what I would do too but the company I work for has a deal with VodafoneNZ to send out SMS through the modem so we require a Vodafone branded modem or one that works with a Vodafone simcard, and given the high turnover of devices it is reasonably hard to find one is guaranteed to work so I was hoping to be able to find a way around this problem.I've returned my one, and got a couple of red K3772-Z and now I'm happy , because I don't have time to struggle for too long with dodgy/not wanna work devices!
We just use channels 0/1 and they work correctly. I have one sitting on my desk connected to a RB750UP that I use for testing, so this is a "known good" configuration.We have an old k3805-z floating around as well, but it doesn't seem to come up when plugged into the USB port of the RB750up. Can't find it when using the default 0:0 data, info channel as well and can't see the info using "Info".
Any ideas on what the correct channels may be so we can at least get this one working?
Try data channel 0, info channel 1. Thats what we are usingYeah, for the k3805 using configuration Port: usb1, Data Channel: 1, Info Channel: 0 whenever I try to run 'Info" to get the data from the modem all I get is "Modem didn't respond - (6)". Now I'm really not sure what the problem is considering that this modem works fine when plugged directly into a PC.
