Huawei E303 HiLink

Wed Dec 12, 2012 9:33 pm

I've seen various threads going around on these modems, and I've been having a fair share of issues.

In 5.16 it would be detected, but have no ports (it uses NDIS and a web front end).

In 5.20 it was detected, and showed up as a USB port (yay! I can add a ppp interface, same for 5.22)

However - No joy in dialling. It has two channels, if I try connect via serial terminal to the first (0) I get nothing back, and if I connect to the second (1) I mostly get nothing. I say mostly as I did at one point receive a bunch of what looked like HTML / HTTP addresses and messages. The entire terminal then started displaying garbage and that was the last I had.

I've tried every combination of Data and Info channels, with no joy on dialling. In serial terminal, I cannot enter keystrokes / ATZ / anything.

Any ideas welcome! I have saved a Supout.rif from a RB751U on 5.16 and a Supout.rif from a RB751UG on 5.22 if it does need to go to support and I'm not doing something monumentally silly.

For use with MikroTik You need to put E303 to modem mode.

Open your browser an go to
http://192.168.1.1/html/switchProjectMode.html
and
install drivers for modem
HUAWEI Mobile Connect - 3G Modem

in huavei terminal:
AT^U2DIAG=0 - switch to modem mode
AT^U2DIAG=375 - return to hilink mode

before use with PC need to reinsert device.

for use with PC install drivers for Ports
HUAWEI Mobile Connect - 3G Application Interface
and
HUAWEI Mobile Connect - 3G PC UI Interface
then use device like regular modem

Try this PicManual

p.s. My PC running on Win7x64

I need help with this. Badly! I am working with a team in Taiwan on some hardware and the E303's are already bought and not compatible. We can't get the modem activated in the E303, it keeps in HiLink mode and not modem mode. We've seen your instructions but cant convert to English or find a direct contatc on there. Any assistance would be massively appreciated. Also, happy to pay for you to remote control our computer and get it going on 1/a few to show our team.

Hi Guys

Has anyone been able to get this to work as yet? The new version of this device uses the 192.168.8.1 default IP and the switchProjectMode link doesn't work. Any guidance would be appreciated please.

regards
Arsalan

In my experience Haewei tech support don't know how to do this, and nor does anyone else on the planet... It is crazy! I got part first hurlde and seemed to be very close. I did the following:

1. Get API token by going to http://192.168.8.1/api/webserver/token

Use token in step 2 instead of 1099746139

2:

Linux:
echo "<request><mode>1</mode></request>" | curl -X POST -H "__RequestVerificationToken:1099746139" -H "Content-type: text/xml" -d @- http://192.168.8.1/api/device/mode
Windows

Download curl http://curl.haxx.se/dlwiz/?type=bin&os= ... =2000%2FXP
in cmd window
echo "" | curl -X POST -H "__RequestVerificationToken:1099746139" -H "Content-type: text/xml" -d "<request><mode>1</mode></request>" http://192.168.8.1/api/device/mode

This seemed to do what the missing switchProjectMode url should do.

In Linux I could then use minicom to send modem commands.
But
AT^U2DIAG=0 gives the following:
+CME ERROR: 50

And there I am stumped!

Any one else????????

Further to my post above, I have realised that by automatiting the steps described above on every reboot I can use the E303 just as if it was permanently in serial mode. (It only comes out of serial mode when it restarts, so as long as my device sends the xml to the correct url on the hilink during its boot process I am oK)
