Visible + EC25-AF + GoldenOrb doesn't connect to LTE

Post by vallkor »

Hi,

Setup:

Provider: Visible (unlimited, activated on iPhone)
Router: we3926
Mode: Quectel EC-25 AF
Firmware: latest GoldenOrb

Symptoms:

Doesn't connect to LTE tower at all, says "no service", GoldenOrb doesn't get SMS message from SIM.

Everything works on AT&T and T-Mobile sim cards for the same setup, but not on Visible SIM.
Visible SIM works great in my iPhone.

What I tried (didn't work):

1. Setting APN to VSBLINTERNET and TTL to 65, 64, 117.

2. Following commands helped others with Sierra, but doesn't work for me (these are for Sierra, but I have EC-25 AF and I get "ERROR" for the first 2 commands):

Code: Select all

at!entercnd="A710"
at!usbcomp=1,1,1009
at+cgdcont=1,"IP","VSBLINTERNET"
at+cgdcont=1,"IPV4V6","VSBLINTERNET"
at!reset
3. I found how to place EC-25 AF to MBIM mode and ran the following command, it didn't help:

Code: Select all

AT+QCFG="usbnet",2
at+cgdcont=1,"IP","VSBLINTERNET"
at+cgdcont=1,"IPV4V6","VSBLINTERNET"

There is no connect to LTE at all. Please help.

Yipzy helped me to get my EP06 and EM12 to work on Visible.
This is what I did. Should be same process for EC25-AF

Before you start this might want to set back to OEM state if you been putting other commands in to start off fresh.
AT+QPRTPARA=3 (modem to its OEM state)

AT+QMBNCFG="AutoSel",0 (stop Autoselect config on sim detection)
AT+QMBNCFG="Deactivate" (disable MBN config)
AT+CFUN=1,1 (reboot the modem)
AT+QCFG="usbnet",2 ( MBIM protocol)
AT+QCFG="nwscanmode",3,1 ( 4G-LTE only)
AT+CGDCONT=1,"IPV6","VSBLINTERNET" (Has to be ipv6 only)

After this the TTL that works for Visible is 64

Also for good measure copy and past this shown below in to custom rules
Tab to the left of custom TTL settings called custom rules.

#start TTL rules
iptables -t mangle -I POSTROUTING -o wwan0 -j TTL --ttl-set 64
iptables -t mangle -I PREROUTING -i wwan0 -j TTL --ttl-set 64
ip6tables -t mangle -A POSTROUTING -o wwan0 -j HL --hl-set 65
ip6tables -t mangle -I PREROUTING -i wwan0 -j HL --hl-set 65
#end TTL rules

If this works for you please post and say so to help others in the future.

Once mine was going for what ever reason it "seemed" to help video streaming if I used cloudflare dns on the router that was using for WiFi
Clound flare DNS is below
1.1.1.1
1.0.0.1
If you are using your rooter router for WiFi here is a link of where to set that at.

Thanks for your help! It worked!

I found that you also need to run the following command before setting right APN:

Code: Select all

AT+CGDCONT=1;+CGDCONT=2;+CGDCONT=3;+CGDCONT=4;+CGDCONT=5;+CGDCONT=6;+CGDCONT=7;+CGDCONT=8;+CGDCONT=9;+CGDCONT=10;+CFUN=0;+CFUN=1
So updated instruction that worked for me on latest GoldenOrb + EC25-AF modem + Visible $40 unlimited LTE:

1. Set the APN in Connection profile to "VSBLINTERNET"

2. Reboot ROUTER

3. Run the following command in Modem -> Miscellaneous:

Code: Select all

AT+QPRTPARA=3
AT+QMBNCFG="AutoSel",0 (stop Autoselect config on sim detection)
AT+QMBNCFG="Deactivate" (disable MBN config)
AT+CFUN=1,1 (reboot the modem)
#wait 30 seconds for modem to reconnect
AT+QCFG="usbnet",2 ( MBIM protocol)
AT+QCFG="nwscanmode",3,1 ( 4G-LTE only)
AT+CGDCONT=1;+CGDCONT=2;+CGDCONT=3;+CGDCONT=4;+CGDCONT=5;+CGDCONT=6;+CGDCONT=7;+CGDCONT=8;+CGDCONT=9;+CGDCONT=10;+CFUN=0;+CFUN=1 (set all other APN slots to empty)
AT+CGDCONT=1,"IPV6","VSBLINTERNET" (Has to be ipv6 only)
4. Set TTL to 64

5. Also for good measure copy and past this shown below in to custom rules
Tab to the left of custom TTL settings called custom rules.

Code: Select all

#start TTL rules
iptables -t mangle -I POSTROUTING -o wwan0 -j TTL --ttl-set 64
iptables -t mangle -I PREROUTING -i wwan0 -j TTL --ttl-set 64
ip6tables -t mangle -A POSTROUTING -o wwan0 -j HL --hl-set 65
ip6tables -t mangle -I PREROUTING -i wwan0 -j HL --hl-set 65
#end TTL rules
6. In Miscellaneous set Current Cellular Mode : 4G Only

7. Reboot ROUTER again.

8. Works!


Thanks again!

I tried these commands on a GL-X750 router & EC25 modem but with stock firmware and it didn't work.

I had to use a manual connection with /dev/ttyUSB3.

Maybe, I'll install GoldenOrb on it today and try again.

I'm assuming you aren't using spaces when you use the command?

Code: Select all

AT+QMBNCFG=“Deactivate”

I did gscheb and vallkors solutions and it worked but only after power cycling the router a few times. Basically it didn't work the first time, i did the instructions again, power cycled, it didn't work. Unplugged it, boxed it up cause i had to travel, then when i got to my destination, i plugged it in again and it worked with the visible sim! It wasn't an issue of signal cause i have verizon as my main cell carrier and i would test that sim and it would always work, but the visible sim would never connect in the router. The visible sim was activated correctly with my iPhone to activate it and test, and it always worked in my phone. What i think the problem was, was that i initially set up the router - we826 t2(Quectel EP06-A modem) with my verizon sim to test, before trying to set it up with the visible sim, and that maybe some settings that were specific to verizon were saved and AT+QPRTPARA=3 never worked to reset them. Here is also some info from the debug screen that i though were telling me information i was too unskilled to understand. Thank y'all so much for your time and instruction, it was very valuable to me!

Look at my first comments in the post for EM12. Should be similar. But I do think the EC25AF doesnt like MBIM mode. though I have gotten an EC25AF to work on Visible. I swapped from QMI to MBIM then back to QMI after it wouldnt connect. I dont know what did the trick, but it eventually worked.

@Didneywhorl
Thank you for the tip. The other post makes sense. To be clear, in order to get the "Deactivate" command to work, we need to set it, then toggle QMI to MBIM then back to QMI? With lots of modem reboots in between all the commands?

The AT+QMBNCFG="Deactivate" only works if AT+QMBNCFG="List" shows that one of the pdp contexts are active. Just run it and see if it says OK or error. IF it says OK then it worked ;) But the pdp context will reactivate on next reboot unless you run AT+QMBNCFG="AutoSel",0

As far as protocols, I would just change to MBIM, then run AT+CFUN=1,1 to hard reboot the modem, then see if you can get it working. I've found the best luck using MBIM mode with Visible service. If you cant get it going after trying all things, then maybe switch it back to QMI, again running AT+CFUN=1,1 to reboot the modem. Typically I don't reboot the router to set modem changes, sometimes that doesn't work unless you power cycle anyway.

The following command always produces an error. Probably because it is in use, is there a way to disable it?

Code: Select all

AT+CGDCONT=1 
The rest of the commands work without error

Code: Select all

AT+CGDCONT=2;+CGDCONT=3;+CGDCONT=4;+CGDCONT=5;+CGDCONT=6;+CGDCONT=7;+CGDCONT=8;+CGDCONT=9;+CGDCONT=10;+CFUN=0;+CFUN=1 (set all other APN slots to empty)
Here is the result of AT+CGDCONT?

Code: Select all

AT+CGDCONT?
+CGDCONT: 1,"IPV6","tracfone.vzwentp","0.0.0.0.0.0.0.0.0.0.0.0.0.0.0.0",0,0,0,0
+CGDCONT: 2,"IPV4V6","ims","0.0.0.0.0.0.0.0.0.0.0.0.0.0.0.0",0,0,0,0
+CGDCONT: 3,"IPV4V6","sos","0.0.0.0.0.0.0.0.0.0.0.0.0.0.0.0",0,0,0,1

OK

Yeah, it usually fails on atleast one.

IF you cleared the APNs and that loaded itself in, you likely have the mbn profiles still in AutoSel

run AT+QMBNCFG="List" and see if it has one active still.

AT+QMBNCFG="AutoSel",0 should turn it off, then AT+QMBNCFG="Deactivate" should turn off any that are on still.

after clear out the extra APNs and then AT+CFUN=1,1 and see what AT+CGDCONT? brings up after if comes back.

I'm assuming you have the tracfone APN in the modem connection profile?

Thanks for the information!
I was moving from PagePlus to TMobile... It looks like everything got updated.

AT+QMBNCFG showed one active...

Code: Select all

AT+QMBNCFG="List"
+QMBNCFG: "List",0,1,1,"ROW_Generic_3GPP_PTCRB_GCF",0x0801FE02,201910231
After the reboot

Code: Select all

AT+CGDCONT?
+CGDCONT: 1,"IPV4V6","fast.t-mobile.com","0.0.0.0.0.0.0.0.0.0.0.0.0.0.0.0",0,0,0,0
+CGDCONT: 2,"IPV4V6","ims","0.0.0.0.0.0.0.0.0.0.0.0.0.0.0.0",0,0,0,0
+CGDCONT: 3,"IPV4V6","sos","0.0.0.0.0.0.0.0.0.0.0.0.0.0.0.0",0,0,0,1
If all that looks good, I think I am ready to run.

Below is an edit to the original instructions per some changes from Didneywhorl's post

This should work for Quectel Modems EC25-AF, EP06 and EM12

Before you start this might want to set back to OEM state if you been putting other commands in to start off fresh.

- Set modem to its OEM state Command = AT+QPRTPARA=3
- Follow up with OEM state command per Didneywhorl Command = AT+QPRTPARA=1

- Place SIM card into the appropriate SIM slot.

- Power up the router and give it time to fully boot up

- Login to the WebUI of the router

- Navigate to the menu: Modem--> Connection Profile

Under Default Profile --> APN, enter : vsblinternet

Click "Save & Apply" button at the bottom of the screen
visible apn page.PNG
- Navigate to the menu: Modem -- > Miscellaneous. We are going to use the AT Command Terminal

- Enter the "AT-Command" = at+cgdcont?

- and press enter
visible modem apn.PNG
- The number of output +CGDCONT: items listed will need to be replaced. Mine above has 3 of them. These are called "PDP Contexts" and are numbered as they are referenced. To reference context #3 you would say AT+CGDCONT=3, followed by a series of parameters.
This illustration shows 3 but if yours has 6 or etc do that that many times changing that one number like the picture below.
visible pdp conents.PNG
Ours has 3 so we will run 3 commands:

AT+CGDCONT=1,"IPV4V6","vsblinternet"

AT+CGDCONT=2,"IPV4V6","vsblinternet"

AT+CGDCONT=3,"IPV4V6","vsblinternet"


This is the simplest way to do this. Run one command at a time

- Next set it to MBIM Protocol Command = AT+QCFG="usbnet",2

- Stop Auto select config on sim detetion Command = AT+QMBNCFG="AutoSel",0

- Disable MBN config Command = AT+QMBNCFG="Deactivate"

- Set to 4g LTE only Command = AT+QCFG="nwscanmode",3,1

- Reboot the modem Command = AT+CFUN=1,1
(Or just power cycle it by unplugging and re-plugging in the power cord)

After this the TTL that works for Visible is 64

Also for good measure copy and past this shown below in to custom rules
Tab to the left of custom TTL settings called custom rules.

#start TTL rules
iptables -t mangle -I POSTROUTING -o wwan0 -j TTL --ttl-set 64
iptables -t mangle -I PREROUTING -i wwan0 -j TTL --ttl-set 64
ip6tables -t mangle -A POSTROUTING -o wwan0 -j HL --hl-set 65
ip6tables -t mangle -I PREROUTING -i wwan0 -j HL --hl-set 65
#end TTL rules

If you are using your rooter router for WiFi here is a link of where to set that at.
https://wirelessjoint.com/viewtopic.php?f=19 ... =10#p10732

Further more if you are using one of the WE826 versions. And you like to see the little blue world light come one when it connects to service see this post here:
https://wirelessjoint.com/viewtopic.php?f=8&t=666

Also have noticed it helps Visible service to keep it a "Fresh" connection. So have been setting up auto reboots. This will only work with Quectel modems. Sierra Wireless require full power cycle to reconnect.
Look under "Services / Scheduled Reboot". Make sure your time is correctly set, enable and choose a time for reboot.
Pick a time to reboot when no one is using it like every day at 4:30am for example.

If you run AT+QPRTPARA=3, always follow it with AT+QPRTPARA=1

This worked for an EM160R-GL on Visible. Only change:

Instead of
- Set to 4g LTE only Command = AT+QCFG="nwscanmode",3,1

Use
- Set to 4g LTE only Command = AT+QNWPREFCFG="mode_pref",LTE

Technically don't have to do that command if you didn't want too. Could just do this in its place shown below. Does the same thing. The command just forces it to do so.

If you don't have a SIM card inserted, sometimes that happens.

IT WORKS! YES!
After a week of trying all sorts of stuff.
It works on a Woda H721.
My SIM card slots were marked backwards. On the outside it says SIM-1, and SIM-2.
But the wires must be crossed. SIM 2 is SIM-1 and SIM 1 is SIM-2 on the GUI router Interface.
I added to the custom profiles for Modem #1 IMEI to SIM-2 SIM ICCID, and Modem #2 IMEI to SIM-1. Plus kept Modem#1 to SIM-1, and Modem#2 to SIM-2, all 4 custom profiles enabled. Plus these AT commands with the:
AT+QCFG="nwscanmode",3,1
For 4G, and they all work now.
Load balancing, everything.
I am using EM12-G with visible.
I had 6 of these:
AT+CGDCONT=1,"IPV4V6","vsblinternet
Just changing the number 1, six times. i.e:
AT+CGDCONT=1,"IPV4V6","vsblinternet"
AT+CGDCONT=2,"IPV4V6","vsblinternet"
AT+CGDCONT=3,"IPV4V6","vsblinternet"
AT+CGDCONT=4,"IPV4V6","vsblinternet"
AT+CGDCONT=5,"IPV4V6","vsblinternet"
AT+CGDCONT=6,"IPV4V6","vsblinternet"


Thanks, fellas. I'm going to make my first born make thier first email addresses names after you, LoL 🤗

Didneywhorls DNS is amazing.

I put the 8.8.8.8 & 4.2.2.2 & 8.8.4.4 & 9.9.9.9 for the custom profiles, throw the phone companies off.
The in on the LAN Interface I used his 1.1.1.1 & 1.0.0.1
I also put it on the annouced IPVS settings for dns server and domain. Much faster than my old setup. I have the router running to 2 Asus Router, with VPN DNS on them. One Asus router has VPN, for Xbox, PC. Other Asus router has no VPN for guest phones, amazon taps, amazon show, roku, roku T.V., and amazon fire stick. Runs smooth after entrring didneywhorls DNS.
I think this set up is much faster than my old one. 2 mofi's going to LAN VPN Load Balancer, to 2 asus routers.
At least appears that way with hulu. Will run speed tests tomarrow, late now.

Just tried this,

"Use
- Set to 4g LTE only Command = AT+QNWPREFCFG="mode_pref",LTE"
Came back error on EM12-G, going back to,

"- Set to 4g LTE only Command = AT+QCFG="nwscanmode",3,1"

From the above post.

New problem, 1 modem keeps locking on B13, the other on B66. B13 gets 10MHZ less. Is that signal strength or bandwidth. Can I lock one on B4 & one on B66, or both on B66, or B4. I know thier is a AT command for band lock, but what is it? I saw the reversal topic, but don't see the "lock" topic. (That has the actual command.)

I just upgraded to the new Visible Plus plan, and now it seems that my my WE826 and EM12 don't want to connect. I changed the APN to vzwinternet, but still nothing. I re-entered the commands above in red and changed to vzwinternet just to be sure. Still getting the "connecting" on the modem page. Any help appreciated...I'm pretty new at this.

After a few reboots, it ended up working with VZWINTERNET. Thanks for your help. Still seems like I'm getting the 5mbps limit, though.

Thanks, guys!

Male sure to disable the auto pdp contexts. AT+QMBNCFG="AutoSel",0

Also change to MBIM protocol: AT+QCFG="USBNET",2

Reset the modem after changing: AT+CFUN=1,1

Make sure the router firewall has custom TTL & HL rules. Article on this site on how to do this.
