Sharing Files via microSD card

The microSD slot will be shared via WebDAV. You can mount this on Windows/Linux/Mac to a readable/writable device/folder:

Windows 7

  1. Go to Computer.
  2. Click Map network drive on the toolbar.
  3. Select an available drive letter.
  4. In the Folder field, type http://aircard.hotspot/dav.
  5. Click Finish.
    The network drive created appears as a shared drive under Computer.
  6. Drag and drop (or copy and paste) files to the shared drive.
  7. If you are asked for a user name and password, leave the user name blank and enter the password (if password-protection has been set up). Otherwise, leave the user name filled in and leave the password field blank.

Mac OS X

  1. Open Finder.
  2. Select Go > Connect to Server....
  3. Type http://aircard.hotspot/dav/.
  4. Click Connect. If you are asked for a user name and password, leave the user name blank, and enter a password (if password-protection has been set up), and click OK. Otherwise, leave the password blank and click Cancel.
  5. Drag and drop (or copy and paste) files to the aircard.hotspot shared drive that appears in Finder.

I installed usb_modeswitch (don't think I needed this), rebooted and when I now plugged in the device, dmesg shows:

The problem was not so much the fact that usb_modeswitch was missing (at least I don't think so) but rather that I didn't restart after installing some updates incl. a newer kernel. After the upgrade the kernel was: Linux udoo 3.18.5-1-ARCH #1 SMP Fri Jan 30 20:20:32 MST 2015 armv7l GNU/Linux

The sierra_net kernel module directly creates a network interface for us. See ip addr:

3: wwan0: <BROADCAST,MULTICAST,NOARP> mtu 1500 qdisc noop state DOWN group default qlen 1000
    link/ether 6e:c1:a9:fe:01:07 brd ff:ff:ff:ff:ff:ff

On Arch Linux you can get an IP address via DHCP like this:

systemctl start dhcpcd@wwan0

Then the output of ip addr looks like

3: wwan0: <BROADCAST,MULTICAST,NOARP,UP,LOWER_UP> mtu 1500 qdisc pfifo_fast state UP group default qlen 1000
    link/ether 6e:c1:a9:fe:01:07 brd ff:ff:ff:ff:ff:ff

    inet6 fe80::396d:1e1a:5964:167e/64 scope link 
       valid_lft forever preferred_lft forever

and ip route will show an extra route:

Rumours about GPS AT commands:

Here are the commands:

AT!ENTERCND="A710"
AT!CUSTOM?
AT!CUSTOM="GPSENABLE",1
AT!CUSTOM="GPSREFLOC",1
AT!CUSTOM?
AT!GPSAUTOSTART?
AT!GPSAUTOSTART=1
AT!GPSFIX=?
AT!GPSFIX=1,30,10
AT!GPSFIX=3,30,10
AT!GPSTRACK=?
AT!GPSEND
AT!GPSLOC?
AT!GPSSTATUS?
AT!GPSSATINFO?
AT!GPS3RDPARTYXFER=?

When you enable GPS with AT!CUSTOM="GPSENABLE",1 and reboot with AT!RESET, a new /dev/ttyUSBx appears. The NMEA port?!

I couldn't get it to work. When I try to run AT!GPSTRACK=1,10,100,1000,2 or AT!GPSFIX=3,30,10 I get ErrCode = 23 errors (= "Unsupported service" or "mode not supported"?).

I found that for the AirCard 890 there is a tool available from Netgear to enable GPS: How can I get Assisted GPS (A-GPS) to work with my AirCard 890? It involves flashing the unit with a new (GPS enabled?!) firmware.

Without such a firmware for the AC762S I don't think it will work. If you know more, leave a comment at the end of this post.

Realistic Speed

Values I was able to achieve:

  • DC-HSPA+: 32 ms, 14.5 Mbit/s, 3.5 Mbit/s (2015-01-20/Mac/USB/at home in Frankfurt)
  • DC-HSPA+: 29 ms, 18.9 Mbit/s, 3.7 Mbit/s (2015-01-20/Linux/USB/at home in Frankfurt)
  • LTE/4G: 30 ms, 10.5 Mbit/s, 2.9 Mbit/s (2015-01-20/Linux/USB/at home in Frankfurt)
  • LTE/4G: 52 ms, 15.9 Mbit/s, 17.7 Mbit/s (2015-02-10/Mac/WiFi/Firefox/at home in Frankfurt)
  • LTE/4G: 45 ms, 18.6 Mbit/s, 17.3 Mbit/s (2015-02-10/Mac/USB/Firefox/at home in Frankfurt)

Using it automatically as backup route once connected to a Linux computer

I'm not finished with this yet. It's only a rough sketch...

Firmware Downgrade

I did a firmware downgrade with the tool from https://www.dna.fi/fi/tuki-dna-4g-wlan-mokkula and with the help of a Finnish thread about this.

Afterwards it shows up like this in dmesg:

[502059.968208] sierra_net 1-1.4:1.7 wwan0: register 'sierra_net' at usb-ci_hdrc.0-1.4, Sierra Wireless USB-to-WWAN Modem, f6:b2:54:62:08:07

The wwan0 still shows up in ip addr / ip link.

I could still get an IP wia DHCP: 192.168.2.2 from 192.168.2.253 on the USB directIP connection. On the WLAN interface I got 192.168.1.2 as IP with 192.168.1.1 being the IP of the AirCard.

The output of a couple of AT commands is different now:
