Problem with Novatel EU850D - 3G modem
Good day all,
i just buyed an Alix pc with pfSense 2.2.1 installed and a Novatel EU850D 3G modem.
I use a Vodafone Italy sim but the connection doesn't work.
I think in a compatibility problem with pfSense and Novatel modem.
Here below the PPP log:

Anyone can help me?
Thank you in advance
Well your modem doesn't like that init string.
Try each command individually and see which one it doesn't like
They are all fairly standard commands though.
Did you got it working well now?
Somewhere in the pfSense upgrade cycle we lost lots of 3G modules on the list. They used to work a now they don't. Just to confirm consider trying an old version and then upgrade install to current.
I have just purchased a pfSense appliance with Novatel 3G modem.
the problem is the PIN on the SIM card.
if you disable the PIN code, the 3G modem work fine.
I have been followed the guide below:
pfSense tested: 2.2.2
