ConnectCore6 miniPCIe cellular module

0 votes
Hello,

I am currently trying to use a HUAWEI ME909u-521 cellular module with a ConnectCore6 sbc board.

I have recompiled the OS using the "Cellular user guide" provided by DIGI.

The board is booting correctly and the cellular module is detected when I use the lsubs command. It is also possible to send AT command to the module using minicom.

Now I want to bring up a network interface for this module. I have manually add this config in the /etc/networking/interface:

iface eth1 inet manual
apn internet-enterprise
pin 0000

After that I restart the networking service but no eth1 interface is bringing up. I can't guess where the problem can be.

If someone can help me it would be nice from you.

Best regards

Hello, I hope you are using the latest yocto version 2.0.r1?

Try the below command and check
#ifup eth1

Still if you are facing the issue, I suggest that
add the configurations in local.conf as mentioned at below link then create the image and test.

Still if you are facing the issue, contact digi technical support.

Thanks.

Hello ,

Yes I am using the latest verion (2.0)

I tried to run the ifup eth1 command but nothing happens. There is no eth1 interface after runninf an ifconfig.

I already add the right config in the local.conf file like that:

IMAGE_INSTALL_append=" wvdial networkmanager modemmanager usb-modeswitch"

CELLULAR_INTERFACE = "eth1"
CELLULAR_APN = "internet-enterprise"
CELLULAR_PIN = "0000"
CELLULAR_AUTO = "1"
