I’m trying to a computer running ubuntu to the internet via a GL7600 (and later a GL7500) connected via microusb.
The GL is recognized in lsusb, it creates interfaces
ip a and
ModemManager can interact with it, even managing to conect to the LTE network (with
mmcli -m 1 --simple-connect="apn=gprs.swisscom.ch,user=gprs,password=gprs").
However, I cannot access the internet as:
- the modem doesn’t show up in
wwanXinterfaces cannot be brought UP
/dev/cdc-ncmfile is not present.
I’d like to connect to it with some high speed protocol like NCM or MBIM in order to benefit from the LTE bandwidth, not as a serial modem.
Where can one find guidance on GL usage under linux?
