I am at a loss. Trying to use the EM9190 module as a home gateway. I am trying to install the module on a BananaPi-R64. The mainboard has a secondary MPCIE 2.0 port available in addition to the primary MPCIE slot which I am using for my wifi AP card (MT7915), as well as a USB 3.0 port available.
Prior to this tinkering mainboard, I always used an MC7455 on a PCIE-to-USB bridge on a branded router flashed with OpenWRT, and assumed I take the same approach. Bought an M.2 to USB 3.0 adapter, and the device refuses to boot in both Linux and Windows. Went to the vendor for assistance, and was directed to purchase a dev kit or come here for pointers. Looking for any way possible to avoid buying a $750+ dev kit to configure the $400 module I just purchased. I honestly just need to get this module to switch over to USB mode…
I’m searching for either a USB 3.0 adapter which will provide the additional functionality of the additional pins required to initiate the switch to USB mode, or any suggestions on a M.2 to Mini PCIE adapter that offers a SIM slot.
Any help or a point in the right direction would be highly appreciated. Please.
