GL-MiFi support for EC25-AF?


#1

Wondering if anyone has had success with the Quectel EC25-AF in either a MiFi or Spitz from GL? I figured these modules would be plug-and-play since part of the same series as the default Quectel EC25-A. So far I’ve not been able to establish a connection.

I’m testing in a GL-MiFi with a config and SIM I can confirm connects just fine when using the EC25-A. If I power down, replace the module with the EC25-AF, I get the following output in the system log when attempting to connect:

#2

what is the difference between EC25-A and EC25-AF?


#3

The EC25-A has support for LTE bands 2/4/12. The EC25-AF supports LTE bands 2/4/5/12/13/14/66/71.


#4

I like to know how to make EC25-AF work as well. then I can use one mifi with both t-mobile and verizon sim.
