I have an EM7565 module plugged into a M2-to-USB adapter. My linux host is running ModemManager and NetworkManager. I plug the module in, and all interfaces (/dev/USB[1-3] & /dev/cdc-wdm0) show up but the interface does not come up. Running mmcli --modem=0 shows me that the modem is registered,
Not sure why it comes up in POINTOPOINT. Typically the interface flags are more like <UP,BROADCAST,RUNNING,MULTICAST>. Ideally, I’d like it to show me the inet address for my interface. Any idea what I’m doing wrong?
Yes, I did install the drivers. I was using this page as a reference:
but this line sudo mmcli -m 0 --simple-connect='apn=data.tre.se,ip-type=ipv4v6'
always fails with: error: couldn't connect the modem: 'GDBus.Error:org.freedesktop.libqmi.Error.Protocol.CallFailed: QMI protocol error (14): 'CallFailed''
I will look at these other pages…
Ok, I made progress. I believe I was using an incorrect apn. When I changed that commandline to use the apn that I had configured in the modem with AT+CGDCONT=1, then things got better! I’m not sure I understand what the APN actually is but one step at a time!
