GL-X3000 SIM card switch needs a reboot to properly work

Hi Max3:

I have test it and it is OK.
modem ip different, now regain ip …’ is a normal prompt and does not affect SIM card switching.

It can’t be normal to have the modem offline every 10 seconds, I can’t surf until a reboot! Have you seen the log? I have a disconnection every 10 seconds or so in an infinite loop until a reboot…

Maybe I misunderstood that.
Do you mean that after the sim failover function is enabled, the sim card will be switched over frequently?

How did this issue come about?

When the IP address of the cellular is detected to change, the IP address is updated simultaneously.
And log information will prompt ’ modem ip different, now regain ip …

Yes, the problem is that the IP address is detected to change every 10 seconds after I manually switch from SIM1 to SIM2, and the modem continuosly disconnects and reconnect.
This is 1 minute log after switching, it goes like that forever (tested for 1 hour). Only a reboot or switching back to SIM1 fix that.

IMPORTANT UPDATE:
I decided to try a third SIM (the one from my phone) and I don’t have such problem with that… so it should be an operator specific problem. Any idea how to debug that? Tha APN is the right one and it works just great alone…

Try disabling the cellular connection tracking from the Multi-WAN UI. Test again all sims.

Already tried, no difference.

I have one sim, inserted in the same slot all time and the connection is very stable.

Today thanks to some friends I manged to try basically any operator here in Italy. It seems that some of them doesn’t allow SIM switching. Basically all the SIM I tried work like a charm when used alone but 70% of them gives me problems when doing switching… All I can say is that the operator that gives me problems with SIM switching are the ones that change IP more frequently… (no problems with operators that change IP address every 24h… but problems with operators that change IP address every 4h or so)…

Thank you so much for the test.

It need to capture some data packets to check what’s going on.

wget http://download.gl-inet.com/tools/MT7981/qlog/qlog
chmod 755 qlog
qlog -s /tmp/mountd/disk1_part1/logs_$(date +%Y-%m-%d-%H-%M)

The data volume is a bit large, and an extra USB flash drive needs to be inserted.

Thanks!

I’ve insterted an USB flash drive, downloaded qlog but when doing
qlog -s /tmp/mountd/disk1_part1/logs_$(date +%Y-%m-%d-%H-%M) I am getting:

-ash: qlog: not found

‘qlog’ needs to move the /usr/bin directory。
Or ./qlog -s /tmp/mountd/disk1_part1/logs_$(date +%Y-%m-%d-%H-%M)

I see, thanks.
So I started Qlog and I then tried SIM switching a couple of times…
Here’s my logs: LINK

If you’re still having issues, downgrading to 4.3.0 solved everything for me.

Thanks but 4.3.0 is absolutely unstable for me, I have a complete disconnection everytime my operator change the IP address and this issue was resolved from version 4.3.1 :wink:
Anyway I only have problem in dual SIM configuration, otherwhise everything is rock stable with the latest release.

Hi Max3:

What is the RM520N version?
Version can be viewed with the following AT instruction:

Thanks!

Version is RM520NGLAAR01A06M4G_01.001.01.001 .
Have you downloaded the log from my previous post? :wink:

Yes,I have downloaded the log and checking the information.

Thanks!

Hey, I just tried the new 4.3.3 beta - 2023-06-14 and the issue seems resolved! No problem switching to SIM 2. I’ll test for a day or two and I’ll let you know! :wink: :ok_hand:
