Hi folks, I'm very new here and to Mikrotik in general so please bear with me.
I have an LHGG LTE kit which I planned to upgrade with a Quectel EM12-G modem so I could use band 28. The EM series from Quectel being M.2, I also purchased an M.2 to PCIe adapter that came with a SIM slot. I tested the modem in my RBM11G testbed and it worked perfectly "out of the box" on routerOS 7 beta (6.48 doesn't even detect a modem) and using the routerboard's, NOT the adapter's, SIM slot.
The LHGG was tested with the same sim card on the original modem and worked fine (I live close to a mast and the LHGG is meant for use at a rural property). Feeling confident from the testebed experiment, I proceeded to open my LHGG LTE and replace the Mikrotik modem with the Quectel one, which I bought after reading it's the M.2 version of the modem inside Mikrotik's Chateau router.
I turn the LHGG back on and everything seems OK: it detects the modem. But... now it says there's no SIM inserted, even though there is one in the Mikrotik's sim slot.
My guess is that something is looking for a SIM card in the adapter's slot rather than the LHGG's, as I haven't tried the SIM in the adapter.
Is there a way out for me? Is there a way to "point" routerOS to the LHGG slot?
Thanks in advance for any insights.
