It only takes a minute to sign up. But I still have A LOT of questions, I read many tutorials, articles and even articles from books but I'm still confused, I hope you have time to clarify things for me and for future readers:. A LTE modem can be presented to the operating system in several ways. Having just one channel for both data and modem commands can be inconvenient: it makes it very tricky to send any commands to the modem e. There are higher serial port speeds than bps, and a USB-based serial port emulation might well report them.
But if the actual connection is USB-based, the serial device emulation may just ignore some details of the emulation: for example, the serial port speed and the number of data and stop bits can be ignored, and the commands to set them can be made into no-ops. If necessary the commands to query those settings can be made to produce some sensible-looking answers The PPP protocol is just used between the computer and the modem to make the connection look like a legacy dial-up modem-based network connection.
They present the modem as a real network interface typically wwan0 or similar and an additional device e. It removes the need for both the computer and the modem to pretend that a venerable RS serial port connection exists between them, while the actual connection is USB.
And it allows a separate command channel that can be easily used to e. Not an answer per se, but I don't have enough rep to comment the question. Part of the answer might be found here, as I'm also new this stuff and it gave me some basic answers on ppp vs qmi, Quectel vs Sierra modems, their different proxies, etc:.

You may want to checkout the Multiwan package to use this simultaneously with other connections to the internet. All recent information is valid for Barrier Breaker release and later.
Not tested on AA or elder. Many modern USB dongles could perform in different ways. For more information about different protocols used:. Faster reconnect. Easy to control and monitor. Please read about AT commands for your modem. Complete Steps OpenWrt Configuration.
Router should be turned on and connected to the Internet to get the needed packages. Please refer to: Internet Connection. To make use of qmi protocol, package kmod-usb-net-qmi-wwan and uqmi are needed.
If your have not enough space on your device - think of installing Rootfs on External Storage extroot. Another option is Hardware memory upgrade. Refer to your router Forum thread for possibility and instructions. You can configure UCI manually using uci command line or text editor.
UCI is supporting qmi network protocol configuration. The package uqmi must be installed to use QMI protocol. Currently, there is not enough information about mbim protocol as it's being actively developed.
It will be kept after reboot. In case you need additional authentication, please look at the possible arguments for the uqmi utility:. You can do this using the vi text editor, but if you're not comfortable with that, point your browser to Write wwan as the name of the interface and make it cover the wwan0 interface. Choose DHCP client as the protocol.
I have not enought rights. The only thing that is left - Add wwan interface to WAN zone. That's It! Some providers of the cellular internet use redirection to their pages for access activation, when you are connected first time.
YOTA in Russia.In addition to Linux 5. With systemd releasing soon, it looks like the new out-of-memory daemon will be merged shortly afterwards in allowing sufficient time for testing ahead of systemd Several months have passed since there was any news to report on KDE Frameworks 6 but the coronavirus pandemic as well as Qt uncertainties have not caused KF6 development to slow down for this next-generation set of KDE add-on libraries complementing Qt. Over the past week he's been working on yet more optimizations.
The first public beta of the forthcoming Qt Creator 4. Linus Torvalds just released Linux 5. Intel's open-source compiler engineers have been quite timely in getting the Advanced Matrix Extensions AMX support out in the relevant components since Intel formally outlined AMX in last month's programming reference manual.
Recently there have been a lot of open-source Linux patches flowing concerning Intel's bring-up of their DG1 discrete graphics card for developers. That work continued this week with the latest patches in wiring up LMEM support.

Flutter is the cross-platform, open-source UI toolkit developed by Google for use from Android to Linux and iOS and Fuschia as well as for web interfaces. But thanks to Red Hat and others, the hardware support does continue advancing.
Kernel developers appear to be eager to debate the merits of potentially allowing Rust code within the Linux kernel. Linus Torvalds himself has made some initial remarks on the topic ahead of the Linux Plumbers conference where the matter will be discussed at length. While Mozilla has been gradually enabling WebRender out-of-the-box in more Windows configurations with succeeding Firefox releases, up to now there hasn't been much visible effort in getting WebRender enabled out-of-the-box for any Linux configurations.
But fortunately that is finally changing. While KDE Plasma 5. Merged overnight into the Linux kernel source tree are the new guidelines concerning the use of "inclusive terminology" for future code.
Cling has been in development for years and at least partially is looking to upstream where possible back into LLVM.
Wayland's Weston compositor has provided a weston-info utility to display information on supported Wayland extensions and versioning along with other details of the Wayland compositor environment. That utility is now being spun out as wayland-info as a Wayland compositor-agnostic utility for displaying this information.

They are both connecting to the same tower. They both switch between bands quite often, but this issue happens over all of the ids. I tried matching the phone's default ttl of 52 and also 53, 64, and with no effect. I can see that it's working on the ping response, but it doesn't decrease the latency.
Any ideas? This run still shows it though - the minimum ping with the router is higher than the cell phone's average. Re: Verizon Latency Issues? When you are testing with the router, what is connected to it and how is it connected?
When you are testing with the phone, are you running something on the phone, or are you connecting another device to the phone? If so, what is connected and how? Nothing is connected to the phone; the ping is being run in Termux. There are commands to force it to only use LTE as a test. You can use windows firewall to exclude everything except your ssh program.
It is a bit of a pain to set up. Or you could disconnect the ethernet and try wifi from the phone, just as a test, even though wifi itself might add latency. Just keep the phone right next to the router. The phone has background transmission possibilities too. Something is going on with Verizon.
Used to get ms ping on discord and games. Now this last week, it's now hitting minimum ms ping in discord and ms in games. I've reset the modem contacted the reseller to reset the data, I've checked different antennas etc.
If I connect via my phone it does a good bit better. I think something is going on with Verizon, what region or state are you in? I'm in mid TN. This is super frustrating as I work remote and this causes a lot of latency issues with my job. I'm thinking about doing a NEMA box build and moving it to the top of my property or attaching it to a tall tree, but I don't know how much this will help.
This wouldn't help anything would it? Will check tracerts tonight and update. It had no effect They aren't always on the same one at the same time, but they both swap between the same 3 quite often - during the test window even. The computer is running linux; I don't have any internet related operations in the background except for a connectivity check and ntp.
As an aside: I was absolutely floored when I had to use windows 10 at one point and it was not only downloading in the background, but that download was invisible to both the task manager and resmon The one that I quoted was only a few hundred, I ran one overnight when I first found the problem though I had also run the command from the phone with wifi on and off I'm in central VAM2M Cellular modems allow embedded systems to communicate and connect to the network in places that may not have other standard connections such as WiFi or Ethernet.
Embedded systems are being deployed in more remote locations that still require and mandate an internet connection. Gateworks boards have Mini-PCI-Express slots that allow for a wide range of cellular modems to be connected. M2M cellular modems operate as a point-to-point serial device. Typically they are used as IP network interfaces by initiating a connection to a cellular carrier using standard AT modem commands then running pppd which performs CHAP authentication and implements the PPP protocol.
The pppd daemon uses the chat application for AT command scripts and creates a network interface once authentication succeeds.
As a general rule, you need to have obtained the following from your Service Provider to use M2M devices in linux:. MX6 processors. Production hardware needs to be Carrier Approved - a process that the end-customer needs to work through with the Cellular provider on the finished device. Part of the carrier approval also includes FCC testing of the fully integrated device. By using PTCRB-certified modules, the majority of tests have already been completed and the only additional testing is for the SIM, power and antenna interfaces.
The Cellular Carrier dictates if your plan provides 'mobile termination' the ability to accept connections from the Internet and the IP address provisioning IP class, static vs dynamic, IP range. Check with the specific carrier for different options and costs. It is difficult to suggest modems because of pin signal and voltage conflicts listed here.
Typically these USB only slots are ideal for modems. These exist on some products such as the GW, GW, among others. Thus Gateworks typically find pin conflicts signal mismatch or voltage differences on the following pins:. Some Gateworks SBCs have special resistor loading to eliminate some of these conflicts.
Please contact Gateworks support support at gateworks. See an example image below depicting resistors that can be unloaded to disconnect certain signals:. For prototype testing, conflicting pins on the modem can be blocked with masking tape see below picture.
Once validated, resistor loading can sometimes be adjusted to eliminate the conflicting signals.Each slot contains voice, data, or signalling information. CDMA, on the other hand, is an ingenious spread-spectrum technology. This is why CDMA is extremely robust against snooping and multipath interference, and why its capacity gracefully degrades as cell utilization increases. They are also one of the largest sellers of cellular chipsets in the world. We as open-source developers have to care, because their stuff shows up in tons of the devices we support.
One port is usually AT-command capable. Most CDMA modems do not. Google exposed some of the QMI protocol in the Android drivers. Diagnostic Monitor is an older protocol found in most Qualcomm devices.
While not GPL, we can use the command numbering and structure definitions because it falls under the phonebook and interoperability copyright exceptions. Third, some guy did some reverse engineering of Novatel devices on Windows and built up a list of commands, subsystems, and NVRAM locations that were useful for confirming what I found in the other sources. So through a combination of reverse engineering and these sources I wrote libqcdmwhich we now use extensively in ModemManager for controlling CDMA devices.
Since DM is a pretty old protocol and possibly earliermany of the commands are purely historical and currently unused. The most interesting ones are:. This just makes our life harder. Each device has a number of NVRAM locations in which it stores various parameters like mode preference, roaming, home networks, radio parameters, and a whole bunch of other stuff. Not all devices implement every location. The ones we currently use are:. Sounds simple, but it took a lot of work to get there.
With qcaux. First a big shout to Qualcomm for keeping this shit secret. It might be nice to let open-source developers actually talk to your hardware. With that out of the way, you care because we now have better support for a whole bunch of mobile broadband devices.

Buy Sierra stuff. Last year I initiated a dialogue with Sierra about releasing some details of their proprietary Command and Status CnS protocol. And guess what? They actually listened, did the work, and put the documentation under a Creative Commons license too. Skip to content. What about Qualcomm?
