EM7511 -> MC400-600M-C-AT

Post by calimansi » Sat Sep 05, 2020 10:29 am

Hello.

So, I currently have (2) EM7511's and (2) CBA850's. They all work perfectly with each other.

The CBA850 is not completely able to control the EM7511 because it's not a MC400-600M-C-AT. Do you guys know of a way to convert an EM7511 to an MC400-600M-C-AT?

Can someone post at!usbinfo? of a MC400-600M-C-AT?

Thank you.

MC7455 is MC7455-CP so try EM7511-CP?

EM7511-CP did not work.

Anyone have a MC400-600M that's willing to share?

I haven't seen anyone mentioned this. Most people just swap their MC7455 with EM7565 & EM7511 like you. Have you asked on facebook group?

I did. No one responded. It's not that big of a deal... would be kind of cool just to have the cba850 manage the modem a little more (firmware upgrades), etc.

Look up Ryan Roosa on the Facebook group, I believe he posted a tutorial on how to get the non cradlepoint modems to be seen by the router as a cradlepoint. Its a simple AT command you use to change the PID and VID I believe.

I was able to get the EM7511 to work with the cba. Yes, I needed to change the VID and get it into QMI mode, then it worked perfectly.

What I want is to get the EM7511 to identify as a MC400-600M-C-AT. I believe I need to change the product id to match what's in a real MC400-600M-C-AT. This way, the cba850 will handle all the firmware upgrades, etc.

If it won't work, then that's ok since I can still get super stable and fast internet with this combo... just not the easy to configure part through the cradlepoint ui.
