Config 3g/4g modem on rb962

Hello,

I plug a usb modem and i can see it under usb resources.
I dont see a usb port when i try to config a ppp client. I get "unknown".
Why?

If an USB device appears under /system routerboard usb this doesn't mean ROS has a driver for it. ROSv6 has pretty limited support for peripherials, specially modern ones. Reason being that current ROS is based on outdated linux kernel (and I guess quite some then-existing drivers are omitted from ROS due to various reasons).

Is it possible to load a driver for the modem?

In RouterOS no, it is not possible to load custom drivers or any other part of software.

better to use LTE vs ppp - this can be achieved by buying a mikrotik supported modem for 4g.
i suffered with lower ppp speeds unstable connects, no response to connects on ppp dialout on a semi supported modem.
better to use a supported lte modem or an old 4g handset directly via usb tethering!
