ZTE MF823 Mode switch



  • Hello everyone.
    I am trying to make my modem (ZTE MF823) working under pfSense 2.2.6.
    According to https://doc.pfsense.org/index.php/Known_Working_3G-4G_Modems it will work as Ethernet interface. But when I plugging it it connects as modem (umodem0) and several storages: cd0 (software wor Win), umass0 and da0 (has microSD slot).

    Modem is in mode 0x1403 after connection (which is modem mode) and should be in 0x1405 (CDC, or ethernet card mode, used in Linux).

    I tried:
    1. As said on https://doc.pfsense.org/index.php/Known_Working_3G-4G_Modems

    camcontrol eject cd0
    

    and

    /sbin/camcontrol eject cd0
    

    Result: media ejects, cd0 still recoginsed and nothing changes

    2. usb_modeswitch as described on forums
    a.```
    usb_modeswitch -v 0x19d2 -p 0x1403 -P 0x1495

    Gives "no switching method given"
    b.```
    usb_modeswitch -v 0x19d2 -p 0x1403 -P 0x1495 -d
    

    No changes
    c.```
    usb_modeswitch -v 0x19d2 -p 0x1403 -M <large amount="" of="" numbers="" with="" 32x"0"="" at="" the="" end=""></large>

    Sends bulk message, but no changes in mode.
    
    There is no sucessful reports or guides I found about "pfSense and ZTE MF823" working.
    Any ideas please?
