I am trying to use an AT&T 340U usb card to connect by RAP3. It never even appears to dial, status on card just read "Ready to connect". I have access to the web page for the RAP3 and can ssh to it. The RAP3 works fine with broadband plugged in to E0 but I want to verify I can use a usb aircard also.
What I've tried:
Resetting the RAP3 and just letting it auto detect - which looks correct.
Restarting with E0 disconnected.
Moving 3G/4G to the top of Uplink Priority List.
Manually setting: USB dev: 0x11999051 and USB type: netgear-gobi; or sierra-evdo or sierra-gsm or sierra gobi
Testing 4G card from laptop and updating 340U firmware to 01.13.12.14
Any help would be appreciated. Thanks.
Solved! Go to Solution.

To anyone that runs in to this. 6 days back and forth with TAC was not helpful, but I did find the answer by digging again in to these forums.
- bug ID 102807 was mentioned here, but the needed patch was not described
- a Google search found this Aruba doc which sheds the light that the needed Netgear patch is not a firmware upgrade, but rather a patch to make the 340U compatible with Linux
- this author provided the link to the Netgear patch
- alas the needed Netgear patch for Linux compatibility on the 340U
