QMI protocol error 26

I am using Sierra wireless EM7565 in one of the product that I am working on. When I try to start the network using qmicli -p -d /dev/cdc-wdm0 --wds-start-network= --client-no-release-cid , I get an error that error: couldn’t start network: QMI protocol error (26): ‘NoEffect’. What is the reason for this? Any help on this would help me a lot.


Does it work for AT!scact=1,1
how about windows 10 + skylight, does it work?

Thank you for your reply. I am running this on an embedded unit with libqmi as the interfacing library. I am yet to AT!scact=1,1

Do you mean you cannot take out the module to test on windows?

Yes. It is inside the unit. I will have to dismantle the unit to get access to the modem.

This means what it says. ‘NoEffect’. in a ‘start network’ context means that the requested context is already connected. This is often caused by ‘autoconnect’ being enabled. If this is the case, then disable autoconnect and try again.

Thank you for the reply. Checking whether autoconnect was automatically set.
