EP06-E modem not displayed

  • hello Guys,
    I bought an LTE modem module Quectel EP06-E from AliExpress, I see the module from the shell with the command "usbconfig dump_device_desc" and I got the following information about the device:

      bLength = 0x0012
      bDescriptorType = 0x0001
      bcdUSB = 0x0200
      bDeviceClass = 0x00ef  <Miscellaneous device>
      bDeviceSubClass = 0x0002
      bDeviceProtocol = 0x0001
      bMaxPacketSize0 = 0x0040
      idVendor = 0x2c7c
      idProduct = 0x0306
      bcdDevice = 0x0310
      iManufacturer = 0x0001  <Quectel>
      iProduct = 0x0002  <EP06-E>
      iSerialNumber = 0x0003  <0123456789ABCDEF>
      bNumConfigurations = 0x0001

    when i trying to add the interface as PPP, I cannot see everything about my interface (maybe its not supported yet..)

    can you help me please to resolve this problem?

    If it doesn't present as at least one com port pfSense will not see it. Try running: usbconfig dump_all_config_desc

    You may be able to change it's config index to something that does have a com port, if it has multiple config indexes.

    Otherwise you might need to change it's mode in a different OS before moving the card to pfSense.

    Looks like you need to register on that site to download anything. The guides there should tell you something though.
