Hi, I want to use my RAP-3WN with HUAWEI K5150 (Vodafone branded) LTE modem as a uplink. But I'm not successful in provision RAP with correct modem config.
Modem works flawlessly with my Linux host. I have to use usb_switchmode to switch it to ethernet mode. Than there is new interface where it is possible to get IP address with DHCP and connect to the net.
But no luck with RAP:
show ap debug usb ap-name rap-01
USB Information --------------- Parameter Value --------- ----- Manufacturer HUAWEI Product K5150 Serial Number Driver cdc_ether Vendor ID 12d1 Product ID 1575 USB Modem State Standby
Following line is used for modeswitch in RAP provisioning:
-v 0x12d1 -p 0x1f16 -V 0x12d1 -P 0x1575 -M 55534243123456780002000080000a11062000000000000100000000000000
I use same VIDs/PIDs and message with usb_modeswitch at my Linux host.
Does anybody have idea how to solve this ? Is network adapter style USB modem compatible with rap ?

I managed to hack in the RAP with TTL-USB serial converter. It is necessary to set console password in the controller:
ap system-profile rap-ap-system-profile
than login to console and press Esc ^k to get full access (enable doesn't work).
There are some log in /tmp. lte.log looks promising, but there is only:
Setting up data connection... Modem mode not available - need to repair this
Does it mean that this modem is not supported?
