Setting the APN on a Telit version of the Digi XBee Cellular module

In most cases, you can set the desired APN using the ATAN command.  In some cases, you may need to set it via bypass mode by entering command mode (+++) and setting the ATAP command to a value of 5 and writing it to flash. Then rebooting the module. You can use the following process:


+++

ok

ATAP5 <CR>

ok

ATWR<CR>

ok

ATFR<FR>

ok


Once the module resets, and you have given it a min or two, you can issue an AT to verify you are in command mode.

AT<CR>

ok


To set the APN, the following command would be issued:


AT+CGDCONT= 3, "IPV4V6", "desired APN value" <CR>

ok


Once set, issue the +++ and set the ATAP back to 0

+++

ok

ATAP0<CR>

ok

ATWR<CR>

ok

ATCN<CR>

ok


The module will reboot and come up using the new APN value you set above.


*Note, using bypass mode should be done by those with knowledge of the Telit commands or by guided instruction from Digi Technical Support under a Expert or Professional Support Agreement.
