How do I find out the product or vendor ID of a modem that is plugged into a RAP-5 or AP70?

Aruba Employee

Product and Software: This article applies to RAP-5 and AP-70, to the RN code branch, and ArubaOS 5.0 and later.


Sometimes, existing USB modems are replaced by a newer version from the same manufacturer. You can use the controller to find out the vendor and product IDs of this USB modem for provisioning purposes.

To find the vendor and product IDs from the controller for a new USB modem, follow these steps:

1) After the AP comes up, provision usb_type to be anything (other than 0 or any), and make sure the priority_ethernet >= priority_cellular.

2) Plug in the modem, and reboot the AP. The AP loads the drivers, but it does not use them. The AP comes up as an Ethernet RAP as in step 1.

3) Issue the "show ap debug usb ap-name <name>" command.



#show ap debug usb ap-name 00:0b:86:66:32:c9
