Does Huawei E303 or E173 work with RouterBOARD (also E3372)

Thu Jul 23, 2015 3:16 pm

Hi,

I recently bought a Huawei E3372h 4G USB modem (Vendor ID 0x12d1 Device ID 0x157d) to use it with mAP2n router, but unfortunately it does not work. Maybe there will be a software upgrade solution/patch for this problem, but probably a faster solution at the moment is to to buy another model.

(I have connected to E3372 through Serial and sent AT SETPORT command to disable HiLink mode and use the regular modem mode. I can read the current value, but it won't let me change the value and gives ERROR.)

I have a choice to buy E303 or E173 but before I do, I would like to ask if anyone has used either of these and will the work out of the box without any hacking ?

I have checked the http://wiki.mikrotik.com/wiki/Supported_Hardware page but it is not really clear if they are supported or not.

Do you mean that it doesn't work as a LTE nor as a ppp-client interface?

E3372 with Vendor ID 0x12d1 Device ID 0x157d have mbim interface we will support mbim in v7
you could tru to flesh different firmware that have vendor-id="0x12d1" device-id="0x14dc"
then it will work it using ECM driver
I am not sure about E303 it uses ECM but would it be possible to add support for this modem, i don't know.
E173 should work using serial ppp-out interface

It does not work in LTE and it also does not work as a ppp-client. That is why I am trying to disable Hilink mode, to get it to work as ppp-client.
you could tru to flesh different firmware that have vendor-id="0x12d1" device-id="0x14dc"
Where could I find the firmware? It is not available on huawei's site.
I will try to return the device, but because it works just fine when connected to the computer, I am not sure they will take it back.
we will support mbim in v7
Is there any info, when v7 will be available?
E173 should work using serial ppp-out interface
Has anyone tried E173 and confirm this?

Alright, I got my hands on E303 (Vendor ID 0x12d1, Device ID 0x1506) and also E173 (Vendor ID 0x12d1, Device ID 0x140c). I tried them both and can confirm that they work.

Any ideas with E3372?

I have an E3372h-153 (T-mobile Hungary) modem, which did not work at first because of the need of usb modeswitch.
I could fix the problem using the AT^SETPORT command.

The original mode was:
AT^SETPORT="A1,A2;12,1,16,A1,A2"

I set the modem to:
AT^SETPORT="FF;12,1,16"

usb power reset, and it started working as a PPP interface.

------
I found theese settings using AT^SETPORT, and AT^GETPORTNAME:
AT^SETPORT="initial_mode;normal_mode"

map:
1 - Mobile Data Modem (MDM)
5 - GPS interface
6 - control interface
12 - PC UI
10 - modem?
16 - NDIS
A1 - Virtual cd
A2 - TF card reader
FF - Dummy (disable modeswitch setting this to the initial mode?)

FF before ; enables debug mode, in this mode you wil have all ports enabled
at^getportmode
^GETPORTMODE: TYPE: WCDMA: huawei,rndis:1,pcui:2,c_shell:3,a_shell:4,3g_diag:5,gps:6,4g_diag:7,mass:8,
OK

Plenty of information. Personally I've used russian 4PDA forum topic.
