Re: Huawei e8372h-320 switches to 0x14db and immediately switches back to 0x1f01 ???

I can't imagine that it is usb_modeswitch related. I tend to agree. I installed PFSense on another machine, got everything else up and running network-wise, then plugged in the 8372h and didn't have any luck there either. Slightly different behavior, but same outcome - couldn't get it to work. Well...

Not enough power on the usb port is the most common reason for why mobile broadband dongles fall off the usb bus when they draw more current than the port can deliver.The overcurrent makes the voltage drop so low that the dongle gets starved and resets itself. Well, unfortunately, it's not a power ...

Another thing to look for is the ip address you get from the 8372 dongle/router, it is a 192.168.x.y address since it comes from the LAN side of your dongle/router. Make sure it is not in the same subnet as the LAN of your NetGate SG-1100. I've never seen a dongle fall off the usb bus because of ip...

It stays there because it doesn't get connected. In ecm mode (12d1:14db) it will automatically negotiate a connect which will make it consume much more power than when it is idle. Your NetGate SG-1100 can not provide enough current on its usb port to drive the 8372 which in itself is a complete rou...

Huawei e8372h-320 switches to 0x14db and immediately switches back to 0x1f01 ???

For context: I've installed usb_modeswitch 2.6 on a NetGate SG-1100 firewall running the latest pfSense, 21.05. I'm trying to get an e8372h-320 into mode 0x14db, but every time it immediately switches BACK to 0x1f01 Here are the changes I've made from default: usb_modeswitch.conf [21.05-RELEASE][adm...
