pfSense 2.4.4-RELEASE-p2 with Huawei ME909s-120 modem
I try to configure the 4G/LTE Modem on my pfSense 2.4.4-p2.
The internet connection look like OK, but i receive a wrong gateway from my provider.
Here the Modem:
Manufacturer: Huawei Technologies Co., Ltd.
On the Gateway it is offline
I tried to put the Settings on the file "serviceproviders.xml" on "/usr/local/share/mobile-broadband-provider-info"
with this entries:
This is the Setting, who i received from SALT Switzerland:
Here the Settings of the LTE-Modem:
Can someone help me to check if the settings on the file "serviceproviders.xml" are correct ????
I forgot to put this one:
Looks correct except that they are giving you an invalid subnet mask. To work around it edit the ppp gateway and set in the advanced section:
Use non-local gateway.
But the pfsense get the same subnetmask and gateway still if use a other SIM-Card provider.
I tested it with SALT(ex.ORANGE) and SUNRISE at switzerland.
My Huawei ME909s-120 use the Firmware 11.617.01.00.00, can you tell me where i can download the
newst Firmware 11.617.15.00.00
I never find a link to download this firmware, i found only a PDF with the release note from the ME909s-120_WIN_11.617.15.00.00
Can you explain where to put your setting ?
I put this to the file: /usr/local/share/mobile-broadband-provider-info/serviceproviders.xml
**<provider> <name>Salt Internet</name> <gsm> <network-id mcc="228" mnc="03"/> <apn value="internet"> <plan type="postpaid"/> <usage type="default,supl"/> <name>Internet Everywhere - SaltSurf</name> <authentication method="pap"/> <dns>22.214.171.124</dns> <dns>126.96.36.199</dns> </apn> </gsm> </provider>**
Mmm, in fact it may not be required as it's a PPP link. I was thrown by your mentioning of DHCP.
With a point to point link the traffic should reach the gateway even outside it's subnet.
You may just need to set a different monitoring IP. The gateway might not respond to ping.
Edit the PPP gateway in System > Routing > Gateways tab. Set, for example, 188.8.131.52 as the 'Monitor IP'.
