Problem GL-MT300N with LTE Modem Huawei E3372

I have a problem with GL-MT300N and LTE Modem Huawei E3372 HILINK firmware (МТС 827F/829F, МегаФон M150-2, Билайн E3372/E3370, TELE2 E3372h-153) I tried different packages but when I connect the modem I do not see a new network interface.
In STICK mode, the modem works but it’s very slow, like for a 3G modem.

Most likely, you know about this, are there any work to solve this problem and are there any deadlines?

If it is Hilink, you can find the device in Tethering tab.

I seem to have a similar problem (separate thread), my E3276 probably is not a hilink version.

Would a ZTE MF823 be supported?

@zaxxon,

According to http://www.gl-inet.com/docs/mini/internet/#3g4g-modem

ZTE MF823 is supported.

Hi,

I got the MF823, but it won’t connect. Tested the SIM in another stick in a Fritzbox. Works. Tested the MF823 with this SIM in a Fritzbox. Works.

Settings are identical.

What can I do to troubleshoot this? The user interface seems to lack a Network Selection where I also could see signal strength, right?

These are my log files:

Maybe it is a problem in qmi and ipv6.

Can you try v2.255 from the following link?

http://www.gl-inet.com/firmware/testing/

If not working please let me know.

Gladly. As I’m not in a hurry to brick my device, could you tell me the exact file to use?

thanks

>>Gladly. As I’m not in a hurry to brick my device, could you tell me the exact file to use?

What device do you have? If it’s like the OP and a MT300N, I don’t know why you are strugling - I had a look and unless my eye-sight is worse than I imagined, I can only see one with that label on it!

Ah, shoot, it’s not your eye-sight, but my bird-brain… I have a AR300M.

AR300M firmware v2.26 has been released. Please upgrade and try again.

Sorry to say, but I habe the same issue: GL-MT300A with newest firmware 2.264 and my Huawei E3372 is not detected by the device (IP address is different between router and stick). The stick is working directly connected to my notebook or to another mini openwrt router (TP-Link, but with poor performance).

The GL-MT300A router is detecting the Huawei stick (according the kernel log):

The stick is detected with an ethernet device (MAC 0c:5b:8f:27:9a:64) and this is also the MAC address of interface eth1 on the router, but the interface is down.

So, I think this is an issue of the router or driver issues of the OpenWRT distribution.

Any useful hints at least from GL.iNet?

The modems is recognized but cannot get an IP address. Don’t know why.

I have to ask you to upgrade but there is a firmware v2.27 now.

I tried to upgrade to v2.27 but now I can’t access the router anymore :frowning: Wether with its old IP address nor the last I had configured. And a reset with the button also doesn’t help to access it again.

I’ve managed it now to flash again the router with v2.27 and can access it again. But with no success to detect the Huawei stick :frowning:

On the “Modem connection” view I see the following:
Model|ME909s-821
|IMEI:|undefined
|Carrier|Detecting…
Please make sure the SIM card is inserted in correct direction and do a modem reset

SIM card is inserted in the Huawei stick, but the router doesn’t brings up the eth1 interface. According the kernel logs, the device is detected correct. But it seems to me, that the 3G modem detecting of the Huawei stick is a little bit better then the firmware before, but at least it doesn’t work at all.

From the Log the modem is not recognized correctly. Maybe a new model again.

I bought the HUAWEI E3372 last year in summer, so it is nearly a year old. So it shouldn’t be too new?

It seem that Huawei has different versions of this a stick: E3372 H-153 , E3372 S-154, E3372h-607 (maybe more?) And only one version is working with the GL-MT300N (and with OpenWRT). Unfortunately I don’t know which variante is my stick

  1. Presumably you looked under the tethering tab and not 3/4G.
  2. I believe the model number can be found if you remove the SIM and look there.

ok, thanks for the hint. It is a E3372h-153 Huawei LTE stick. Maybe it could be interesting if somebody with another E3372 version could check if the stick is working

I believe it works, just you need to change the GL Lan to something else from 192.168.8.1
