I have a large project to roll out and am having a problem finding a reliable supply of miniPCIexpress GSM cards which work on RB912s.
I have been given a sample of Dell 5600 Gobi1000 cards, which RouterOS detects as:
(I thought ROS didn't have any Linux in it, but that's a separate issue). When the card is initialised, the log contains:
[admin@Test] > /system resource usb print # DEVICE VENDOR NAME SPEED 0 1:1 Linux 3.3.5 ehci_hcd RB400 EHCI 480 Mbps 1 1:2 Dell Dell Wireless 5600... 480 Mbps
Looking through the forum, I can see that some people have got gobi cards working by downloading the Windows drivers and finding three .sys files. I did this and got:
[admin@Test] > /log print 00:00:16 error Failed to load Gobi firmware, check /port firmware directory setting!
(so it looks like the card is a Qualcom). Power-cycled the board and I still get exactly the same "Failed to load Gobi firmware" error message.

Does anybody have any ideas?
Alternatively, does anybody have any recommendations for cards which work in RB912s, which are readily available and which aren't expensive?
