Sierra Wireless MC/EM 7430



  • Hi,

    I am trying to get a Sierra Wireless EM7430 card working with Pfsense 2.4.0 beta. This card is very similar to the MC7430 except it's in different form factor (M.2)

    Looking at the pfSense FreeBSD source the MC7430 appears to be listed in usbdevs with product id: 0x9071:

    https://github.com/pfsense/FreeBSD-src/blob/7341f15f7754dbf4f2ae475a18fb5c7157f402b2/sys/dev/usb/usbdevs

    Both the EM7430 and MC7430 have the same product id.

    It is detected on startup, however the u3g driver is not loading:

    ugen0.3: <sierra wireless,="" incorporated="">at usbus0

    usbconfig output is:

    ugen0.3: <sierra wireless="" em7430="" qualcomm="" snapdragon="" x7="" lte-a="" sierra="" wireless,="" incorporated="">at, cfg=0 md=HOST spd=HIGH (480Mbps) pwr=ON (500mA)

    bLength = 0x0012
      bDescriptorType = 0x0001
      bcdUSB = 0x0210
      bDeviceClass = 0x0000  <probed by="" interface="" class="">bDeviceSubClass = 0x0000
      bDeviceProtocol = 0x0000
      bMaxPacketSize0 = 0x0040
      idVendor = 0x1199
      idProduct = 0x9071
      bcdDevice = 0x0006
      iManufacturer = 0x0001  <sierra wireless,="" incorporated="">iProduct = 0x0002  <sierra wireless="" em7430="" qualcomm="" snapdragon="" x7="" lte-a="">iSerialNumber = 0x0003  <lr60510133031005>bNumConfigurations = 0x0001

    Wondering if anyone can give any pointers?

    Thanks

  • Now it works!

    It's now in the latest snapshot of 2.3.4 and 2.4.0.
