WP7502 not connecting to LTE private APN

#1

Hello.

I am trying to connect WP7502 chip to LTE network with private APN.

I am using CGDCONT, ATD*99 and pppd (with username and password) commands to setup connection.

pppd hangs up after several seconds, according to network operator specialist the problem is that username and password didn’t reach the operator, just APN name.

Anyone doing the same setup and having a problem or working fine?

Regards.

Hello.

Is there any legacy/proprietary at command to enter username and password for given APN?

Yes, it says. But it’s not true.

I have changed password in secrets file to a bad one and still it says the same.

If you get IP address you have the password right, if you get sth like this you have the password wrong

Regars.

Have tried, didn’t help.

The only way to connect to LTE is to connect to 3G network (at!selrat) and then start pppd wait for IP address. And then use at!selrat to allow automatic network selection (via AT port, on MODEM port pppd is still running) and it would automatically transfer conection to LTE.

Seems too complicated for me.

Hello.

I have had a long phone call with telco provider support. They have analyzed logs and the outcome is that during initial signaling module sets the bit that authentication data would be sent later. But that never happened, even in later frames only data about APN were sent, but no info on username and password.

Would this information be driving us to a right direction how to solve the problem?

Maybe you can capture a wireshark log on your pc and if those data are sent out.

Hello.

What log do you have in mind? Probably I could get pppd kdebug log with all characters sent and received. And maybe log of USB communication. But I doubt it would help - as pppd communication with modem is the same regardless of network (2G/3G/4G) chip is connected to. And name and password is successfully delivered to chip in 2G and 3G mode - so it’s almost sure that even in 4G those data is sent to chip. But chip doesn’t send them to network.
