AirCard 781S Netgear 4g Modem - No usable interface shown



  • Hello all, Im trying to set up a  AirCard 781S Netgear 4g Modem as a failover WAN interface. It has USB capability and works fine on windows and Linux https://www.netgear.com/images/pdf/AC781S_Datasheet_v3.pdf

    The issue when plugged in, pfSense does not show up as a interface nor can I add it as a PPP.

    It does show up as a usb device

    
    /root: usbconfig dump_device_desc
    
    ugen1.2: <aircard 781s="" netgear,="" incorporated="">at usbus1, cfg=0 md=HOST spd=HIGH (480Mbps) pwr=ON (500mA)
    
      bLength = 0x0012
      bDescriptorType = 0x0001
      bcdUSB = 0x0210
      bDeviceClass = 0x0002
      bDeviceSubClass = 0x0000
      bDeviceProtocol = 0x0000
      bMaxPacketSize0 = 0x0040
      idVendor = 0x0846
      idProduct = 0x68e1
      bcdDevice = 0x0228
      iManufacturer = 0x0001  <netgear, incorporated="">iProduct = 0x0002  <aircard 781s="">iSerialNumber = 0x0003  <013804000227124>
      bNumConfigurations = 0x0002</aircard></netgear,></aircard> 
    

    I know this is device is not on the list of working 3g/4g modemd but is there anything I can do to try to get this assigned as a interface?



  • Hello,

    you could try that:
    https://forum.pfsense.org/index.php?topic=106078.msg630826#msg630826

    it works on my AC785S and it's the same idVendor and idProduct

    good luck
