WE1026-5g as Verizon Hot Spot

Post by omackeytech » Wed Apr 03, 2019 5:42 pm

This is my first use of the WE1026 and I can get it to work with an AT&t SIM card but it will not work with the Verizon SIM card.
I see it connect to the Verizon Service, I can connect to the WIFI but the lan does not connect to the wan.
I spent 2 hours with Verizon and they see the router come online, but no data passes.
Any idea what could be wrong.
I tried various APN's, changed the modem card to a Sierra MC7700.
Nothing seems to work.

I'd recommend reading this thread: https://ltehacks.com/viewtopic.php?f=17&t=286

I'll be posting an update soon, cause I just tried this myself, but TL;DR; you really need a pantech usb modem to set this up with first, then move it to your Sierra modem. Verizon DOES NOT support activating Sierra modems.

What modem are you using.

The MC7700 is an AT&T modem and will not work on Verizon.

The MC7750 is a Verizon card that is equivalent to the MC7700.

I actually have 3 modems. The MC7700, a Quectel EC25-A and MC8355 (which is AT&t locked).

Good to know about the MC7700.

What about the Quectel?

FYI, found out the EC25-A is also set up for AT&T, For Verizon it has to be an EC25-V or EC25-AF.
