Starting from RouterOS v6.41 Mikrotik have added LTE Passthrough feature which permit to apply IP configuration directly to the client device.
We have made some tests using Huawei 3372h-153 modem from Moldcell carrier.
/system resource usb print detail
2 device="1:2" vendor="HUAWEI_MOBILE" name="HUAWEI_MOBILE" vendor-id="0x12d1" device-id="0x14dc" speed="480 Mbps" ports=0 usb-version="2.10"
/interface lte print
LTE Passthrough configuration
Flags: X - disabled, R - running 0 R name="lte1" mtu=1500 mac-address=0C:5A:8D:32:9E:24
As this modem is listed with LTE passthrough support we have tried to configure it:
Now, on the laptop connected to Routerboard ethernet 4 port we got 192.168.8.x/24 IP address.
/interface lte apn add apn=internet passthrough-interface=ether4 /interface lte set lte1 apn=internet
In such case, this modem with current setup can't be used in order to provide a Public IP address to the end device.
