EVDO access on an AP-70

I'm starting to try to experiment with the EVDO (USB) connectivity on the AP-70's I've got here with the 3.3.1.7 code - but the only config parm I know about on the AP (input via the SoE cable) is the SETENV EVDO_USER phonenumber@vzw3g.com.
Is anyone else trying that connectivity option out, and if so, how are you getting yours to work?

EVDO Connection

PTierce,

There is RN code on the support website that allows you to pick a broadband card and provider, instead of having to put environment variables. You should check it out.

Re: EVDO access on an AP-70

As Colin mentioned the RN code makes it a lot easier. However if you can give me the make/model of your 3G device I should be able to look up the parameters.

Re: EVDO access on an AP-70

I have tried the Sony Ericsson MD400G, but it would never power up. I was interested if the ZTE MF668 or the ZTE MF636 could work.

EVDO access on an AP-70

Good morning,

I have tested both the ZTE data sticks you mention below. Neither is
functional inconjunction with the AP70.

I will be testing the same Sony stick you mention below shortly.

Rds,

Re: EVDO access on an AP-70

Got a Novatel Wireless U998 stick, have it pluged in to my AP70 and it gets to the point where it mount the SCSI USB Mass Storage devices then waits :eek: and then bootstraps :( .
Would any of the SOE output help?

Sure, you can send the output of the SoE, along with the output of
'printenv'. Both may be helpful in diagnosing a way-forward.
