I USED THIS VERSION GoldenOrb 2017-12-15 Firmware TO INSTALL ON MY NEW WE-3926. SO I NEED TO REVERT BACK TO THE VERSION WE826-GO2018-08-07 BY USING THE BOOTLOADER MODE, AND THEN FOLLOW THE INSTRUCTIONS ON THE TOPIC YOU REFERENCED, OR CAN I JUST FLASH THE VERSION OF GOLDENORB THAT WAS USED TO WORK?
I would use the newer firmware for the WE826-T since it is a newer kernel that supports QMI. The WE826-T and the WE3926 use the identical PCB.

You can install the new image from within GoldenOrb without having to access the boot-loader menu.

Be SURE and UNCHECK the Save Settings box.

A new build for the WE826T is available HERE.

I have not tested it personally, but it has the VID:PID's included for the MC7700 and a few more.

It also includes a few other fixes related to WiFi and connection issues.

The MC7700 already has AT&T firmware on modem.

It would not hurt to update the modem firmware to the latest edition if you have a USB to Mini PCI-e adapter handy.

On their web site it shows ( swi9200x 03.05.29.03 DPI) (swi9200x 03.05.29.03 QMI) question is does it matter which of these two versions I use?

HAS ANYONE BEEN ABLE TO GET THEIR WE826 ROUTER UP AND RUNNING WITH THE SIERRA MC7700. I HAVE UPDATED THE ROUTER TO THE LATEST GOLDENORB, TOOK THE MC7700 OUT AND UPDATED THE MODEM TO THE swi9200x 03.05.29.03 QMI FIRMWARE, BUT STILL CAN'T GET THE MODEM TO CONNECT. AT LEAST AFTER UPDATING THE MODEM FIRMWARE, THE ROUTER IS RECOGNIZING THE MODEM, BUT WON'T CONNECT TO THE NETWORK. BEFORE I TOOK THE MODEM OUT AND UPDATED THE FIRMWARE, THE ROUTER WASN'T EVEN COMMUNICATING WITH THE MODEM, AND THERE IS NO ISSUE WITH THE SIM CARD EITHER. DOES ANYONE HAVE ANY SUGGESTIONS, OR CAN TELL ME HOW THEY WAS ABLE TO GET CONNECTED? OR IS THIS A LOST CAUSE.
