Usb_modeswitch 4G/LTE Telekom LTE Speedstick 2



  • Hi folks,
    I have a brand new 4G USB Stick "Telekom Speedstick 2" which is a Alcatel / TCT L100v, using Qualcomm MDM9200

    The stick is switching by ejcting the virtual CD-Rom device.

    I have managed to switch from 0x1bbb:0xf017 (cdrom) to 01x1bbb:0x011e (usbmodem) using usb_modeswitch port for Freebsd.

    usb_modeswitch -v 0x1bbb -p 0xf017 -M 55534243123456788000000080000606f50402527000000000000000000000
    
    
    usbconfig -d ugen1.2 dump_device_desc
    ugen1.2: <mobile broad="" band="" usbmodem="">at usbus1, cfg=0 md=HOST spd=HIGH (480Mbps) pwr=ON
    
      bLength = 0x0012 
      bDescriptorType = 0x0001 
      bcdUSB = 0x0200 
      bDeviceClass = 0x0000 
      bDeviceSubClass = 0x0000 
      bDeviceProtocol = 0x0000 
      bMaxPacketSize0 = 0x0040 
      idVendor = 0x1bbb 
      idProduct = 0x011e 
      bcdDevice = 0x0000 
      iManufacturer = 0x0003  <usbmodem>iProduct = 0x0002  <mobile broad="" band="">iSerialNumber = 0x0000  <no string="">bNumConfigurations = 0x0001</no></mobile></usbmodem></mobile> 
    

    But still there is no device in PPP interface settings available

    can anyone help?

    I am using pfsense 2.0.2

  • Some 4G modems have an Ethernet like USB interface because that provides a lower overhead interface into the kernel than the "tty" interface previously used.



  • Unfortunately, there is also no new ethernet interface available after connecting/switching the webstick.
    Any other ideas?
    May pfsense 2.1 bring me closer to a solution?

    Please post the output of pfSense shell commanda```
    usbconfig show_ifdrv
    usbconfig dump_device_desc



  • As I am not the Linux/BSD guru… May this help somehow?

    Yes, helpful in terms of showing there is an opensource driver for Linux for that device.

    Edit: In a few minutes googling I failed to find any evidence of support for this device in FreeBSD or evidence of a port of the Linux qmi_wwan driver to FreeBSD.
