Changing the GSM/3G/LTE mode on Huawei USB modems

KeeneticOS has the ability to fix 2G (GSM) / 3G (UMTS) / 4G (LTE) network mode for Huawei USB modems.

The setting is accessible through the command-line interface (CLI) of the router with the command:

interface <interface_name> usb acq gsm/umts/lte


This command is applicable for Huawei modems operating in RAS/NDIS mode.

To work in 2G (GSM) network only, you need to execute commands:

(config)> interface UsbLte0
Core::Configurator: Done.
(config-if)> usb acq gsm
Network::Interface::Usb: "UsbLte0": ACQ saved.
(config-if)> exit
Core::Configurator: Done.
(config)> system configuration save
Core::ConfigurationSaver: Saving configuration...


To apply the 3G (UMTS) network:

(config)> interface UsbLte0
Core::Configurator: Done.
(config-if)> usb acq umts
Network::Interface::Usb: "UsbLte0": ACQ saved.
(config-if)> exit
Core::Configurator: Done.
(config)> system configuration save
Core::ConfigurationSaver: Saving configuration...


To apply the 4G (LTE) network:

(config)> interface UsbLte0
Core::Configurator: Done.
(config-if)> usb acq lte
Network::Interface::Usb: "UsbLte0": ACQ saved.
(config-if)> exit
Core::Configurator: Done.
(config)> system configuration save
Core::ConfigurationSaver: Saving configuration...


To delete a setting, follow the commands (example for a 4G network):

(config)> interface UsbLte0
Core::Configurator: Done.
(config-if)> no usb acq
Network::Interface::Usb: "UsbLte0": ACQ cleared.
(config-if)> exit
Core::Configurator: Done.
(config)> system configuration save
Core::ConfigurationSaver: Saving configuration...
