WE 826-GO / Sierra EM7565 CAT-12 and Visible

Post by GrandPooh-Bah » Wed Jan 08, 2020 12:56 am

Been using Visible with a tethered connection from my android phone for 3 months and nearly a terabyte of downloads. It has been working good. I just ordered the above mentioned router and modem.

I'm hating life without a router. I'm hoping to change that with the soon arriving equipment.

What I have found so far, the following commands need to be sent to the modem.

at!entercnd="A710"
at!usbcomp=1,1,1009
at+cgdcont=1the,"IPV4V6","VSBLINTERNET"

Then the reset command???

at!band=0A,"B2",0,0000000000000002
at!band=0B,"B4",0,0000000000000008
at!band=0C,"B5",0,0000000000000010
at!band=0D,"B13",0,0000000000001000
at!band=0E,"B66",0,000000000000???? [Not sure what numbers should be in place of the ????]
at!band=0F,"VZW (All)",0,000000000000101A [Not sure if this correct 101A]

Not sure how to send the above commands to the modem once it is installed in the WE 826-GO using my Linux Mint desktop.



*************In the end these are the commands that worked for Visible**************


at!entercnd="A710"
at!usbcomp=1,3,1009
at+cgdcont=1,"IPV4V6","VSBLINTERNET"
at!reset

Hello,
These are the commands needed:

at!entercnd="A710"
at!usbcomp=1,1,1009
at+cgdcont=1the,"IPV4V6","VSBLINTERNET"
at!reset

The other stuff below that is locking bands on the modem. In my experience it is not needed. If you have a good signal the modem will do its thing with LTE and connect to the bands. Just like your phone is already doing.

To learn a little about AT commands can look at this post here.

Personally never done it but it is possible to tether a phone to a router as well. Know this is what BillA does.

It recommends using Huawei Terminal to locate the COM Port and using Putty to send the AT Commands for the EM7565 Modem. I found Putty for Linux but not Huawei Modem Terminal.

Do I just connect the WE 826-GO to my Linux Desktop via Ethernet cable to send the AT Commands?

I have a WE826 with MC7455 and just use an Ethernet cable to send the at commands to it.
Go to MODEM > MISCELLANEOUS > AT-COMMAND TERMINAL to send AT commands.
Send them one at a time waiting for response. Will say ok each time when it is successful.

Where do I find "MODEM > MISCELLANEOUS > AT-COMMAND TERMINAL" ?

AT- Command is the line before the big window. You just put in your commands in there. The read out will be in the big window.

Where do I find "Modem" on the computer?
Keep in mind I'm running Linux Mint.

There are two ways to send AT commands to the modem.
It's probably easier to use method 1.

1. With the modem inside the router, you simply access the terminal by logging into the router's settings, then dig down the menus to Network > Advanced > Diagnostics, etc. till you see Terminal. Make sure you are running GoldenOrb or WiFix firmware on the router.

2. With the modem inside an external mPCIe to usb enclosure which is attached to the computer. Not sure about Linux but for Windows you can download drivers listed in this forum. Then you use a terminal like Putty (viewtopic.php?t=33) to send AT commands.

Well of course you're getting an error, due to a typo. lol
It should be:

at+cgdcont=1,"IPV4V6","VSBLINTERNET"
