CATm LTE via BG95-M2

Sat Feb 06, 2021 2:41 am

I would like to connect to LTE via a BG95-M2 cell module, but it appears to require some out-of-kernel drivers to work.

Would it be possible to get their drivers integrated into a future RouterOS release?

There are two ways of getting said device work in ROS and they (most) probably both involve ROSv7 (so you probably should ask this question in subforum dedicated to v7): either driver for that device lands in mainstream linux kernel really soon (and MT devs pick it up before finalizing v7) or MT decides to include it themselves in which case you should request it via official support channes (this forum is actually not one of them).

It is not possible to install custom kernel drivers (or any other piece of software for that matter) in ROS by normal router administrator.

I'm aware that a normal user can't install kernel modules, and they seem unlikely to get upstreamed any time soon. I'll contact support. Thanks!
