RAP-3WN with HUAWEI E367

Hi all,

i'm trying to configure an IAP RAP-3WN with a USB modem HUAWEI E367... but without any result: the blue led always blink, but looking at the Instant "Home Page" I find that the UPLINK status is "PROBE"..

I think that the IAP recognize the USB modem, but it has some problem with the dial-in...

This device is listed inside the Interoperability Table of Aruba, so it should work.. in fact into the support menu I've found that IAP recognize it as 0x12d114cc..


I also tried to use it as remote AP of a controller... ... ...

I have not found any documentation that suggest me the right parameters to use: any ideas?

Re: RAP-3WN with HUAWEI E367

did you ever solved this ? im about to solve the same and i think im missing only few parameters , here my parameters i found out for Huawei E173 :


usb_type=option (2)
modeswitch=-v 0x12d1 -p 0x1436 -M 55534243123456780000000000000011062000000100000000000000000000


the APN you have to change on your own behalf, the user/passwd i kept empty i dont need this normally. pin is also disabled already for that SIMcard.


running IAP OS on RAP3WN ,  for the moment mine is "status 3G/4G" and "probe" and blinking blue , lets see how things evolve ;-)

Re: RAP-3WN with HUAWEI E367

What we need to solve or clearify is the usage of the syntax here , for your Huawei you should have for sure another modeswitch command , also we need to know if we have to provide all parametersfor modeswitch , e.g.:







so from my understand the lower -v/-p is the vendorID and productID for the usb-massstorage , and by providing -V and -P you switch to "modem-usage" , i digged into several RAP/USB guides from aruba internal and some also here in forum write this with -V/-P and some without .


also would like to know my ISP for the simcard doesnt need user/pw , so is the IAP having a problem by keeping those fields empty?


another question is , do we have to use " or '  within the strings ? :


e.g. :



or better using ' instead of " ?


my simcard is already without pin protection so my huawei e5300 wifi router doesnt ask for pin while using this simcard so i want to use this simcard in usb-umts modem now for the IAP .


lets discuss so we can help ourselves..  ;-)
