I cannot install luci-proto-mbim to GL-AR300M16

I have GL-AR300M16 router and Sierra Wireless MC7455 Aircard in a PCI to USB adapter. I can connect to Verizon Wireless Network with Verizon sim card when in QMI mode but will loose cellular connection after a couple of hours. The MC7455 and adapter do not drop connection when connected to USB port on Windows 10 PC. I have switched the MC7455 to MBIM mode with AT!USBCOMP=1,1,1009 and it still works on Windows. The GL-AR300M16 router does not have luci-proto-mbim available and the one recommended at luci-proto-mbim for OpenWrt 18.06 - Wireless Joint give errors:

  • pkg_hash_fetch_best_installation_candidate: Packages for luci-proto-mbim found, but incompatible with the architectures configured
  • opkg_install_cmd: Cannot install package luci-proto-mbim.
    The opkg install command failed with code 255.

How can I get luci-proto-mbim installed, or other recommendations to dropped calls.


May I know what firmware version of the AR300M16 is?

Let us first try to shoot the issue before install the third-party plugins.

  1. Post the return here:
cat /etc/gl_crontabs/crontabs.d/modem_status_monitor

    vi /lib/functions/modem.sh

local bus=get_modem_bus "usb"

  1. Add it if not:
    vi /lib/functions/modem.sh

logger "module_ip==================$module_ip"
logger "interface_ip===============$interface_ip"
