RouterBoard 411U and sierra wireless card

Mon Aug 24, 2009 5:44 pm

I am trying to configure a Sierra wireless card installed in a RouterBoard 411U and am not even sure where to start. I do not even see a new interface show up when I install the card. Anyone have experience with this?

I am successfully using this setup, drop me an email and I will send you the backup file from my setup. You just drop it in the "files" area then select it and restore.

The setup string and everything you need for a subscribed card on AT&T's network. You will need the cell card and a sim card.

steve at airsignal dot net is my email address

I hope you dont have any password on your router..

It will transfer with the backup file... :)

On the other hand I hope you DO have a password !!! 8)

Hi,
I have the following problem with the same configuration:
[admin@MikroTik] /interface ppp-client> /interface ppp-client info 0
pin-status: "PH-NET PIN"
manufacturer: "Sierra Wireless, Inc."
model: "MC8775"
revision: "H1_1_9_3MCAP C:/WS/FW/H1_1_9_3MCAP/MSM6280/SRC 2007/12/12 11:49:21"
serial-number: "xxx"
activity-status: "ready"
functionality-status: "minimum"
gprs-mode: "unknown"
current-operator: "Limited Service"
signal-level: "unknown"

So It seems that the card can not connect to the provider's network. I already removed the pin and checked the modem+sim with a laptop and linux and It worked. Has anybody seen a problem like this?

Hi
I have the same problem with yours, Iam using sierra MC8775
It's look like modem doesn't connect with sim. even I try send sms still fail.
my rb411U working fine when I'am using Huawei E156G USB modem.

\interface ppp-client info ppp-out1

[admin@MikroTik] > /interface ppp-client info ppp-out1
status: "ready"
pin-status: "PH-NET PIN"
functionality: "minimum"
gprs-mode: "unknown"
manufacturer: "Sierra Wireless, Inc."
model: "MC8775"
revision: "H1_1_9_3MCAP C:/WS/FW/H1_1_9_3MCAP/MSM6280/SRC
2007/12/12 11:49:21"
serial-number: "352905014238137"
current-operator: "Limited Service"
signal-strengh: 40



How can I test that my SIM can be read by router using AT command

regards
Tedy

Hi,
I found the solution here: http://www.howardforums.com/archive/top ... 068-1.html
I typed at serial terminal: AT+CLCK="PN",0,"<8 digit unlock code>" and It started to work.
I got a piece of paper with the modem which contained the 8 digit unlock code (ME-UNLOCK).
Regards,
Zoltan

Hi, I would have a question: actually I have a remote station with a GPS receiver.
I have two-way connection: wireless (through RB411), where I use the GPS receiver ethernet port, and a GSM modem, where I connect to GPS receiver through GPS receiver serial port.
I use the GSM modem to download data when wireless connection is not available.
Using the GSM modem in "transparent" mode I can work on GPS receiver with own command set.

Now, with 411U and 3G modem, can I do the same using COM port on RB to connect to GPS receiver?
Thanks.
