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

KeeneticOS has the ability to lock 2G (GSM), 3G (UMTS) or 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 the 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...
