Microsoft encourage cellular module vendors to only expose MBIM interface towards the host system in Windows 8 and later, therefore the Huawei ME906s series do not expose any Modem and AT serial interfaces towards the host. The Windows built-in connection manager can be used to give necessary SIM PIN and APN data needed to establish the data connection in these Windows systems over MBIM interface.

This guide describes a workaround method for how to enable the serial (AT/NMEA) interfaces in Windows 8 and 10 for Huawei HiSilicon based cellular modules that normally only expose MBIM interface.

The Ulog is a log capturing tool for all Huawei modules.

It can work on PCs and various embedded platforms, and supports different operating systems (OS), such as Windows 7, Linux, and Android.
For Windows there's a graphical user interface available. In order to capture logs with Ulog the modules unique shell lock code need to be acquired based on the IMEI.

Question

How to access the serial AT command interfaces for Huawei HiSilicon chipset based modules in systems with Windows 8 and later?

Solution

Serial interfaces for cellular modules are recommended to be disabled by default by Microsoft for systems running Windows 8 and later.

The serial interfaces for AT commands etc. can however be exposed again by first using the tool in linked archive: "Huawei AT commands over MBIM interface tool for Windows 8-10 systems and usage guide" and send module the command bellow once (stored in module memory):
AT^SETMODE=1
(instead of the default value AT^SETMODE=0)
The module will now reboot and new end-points will be visible for the module once re-appearing.

By installing the linked drivers: "Huawei Debug Driver V.2.0.6.1 for HiSilicon" the correct end point drivers can also be loaded for the cellular module when used in this mode.

You should now be able to find AT commands accepting serial interface as following:
Huawei ME909s, and ME906s series:
HUAWEI Mobile Connect - PC UI Interface

Question

How to activate the data connection for Huawei cellular modules over the USB network interface in Linux?

Solution

The first step is to assure that the Huawei cellular module is properly loaded in the Linux system. Huawei modules are most often automatically detected in recent Linux kernels, this can be verified in different ways by commands bellow:

The lsusb command shows what physical USB devices are detected in the Linux operating system:
lsusb
Bus 001 Device 003: ID 12d1:15c1 Huawei Technologies Co., Ltd.

The lsusb -t command shows the USB endpoints exposed by the detected USB devices and the related drivers loaded for them:
lsusb -t
/: Bus 01.Port 1: Dev 1, Class=root_hub, Driver=ehci-pci/6p, 480M
|__ Port 1: Dev 3, If 0, Class=Communications, Driver=cdc_ether, 480M
|__ Port 1: Dev 3, If 1, Class=CDC Data, Driver=cdc_ether, 480M
|__ Port 1: Dev 3, If 2, Class=Vendor Specific Class, Driver=option, 480M
|__ Port 1: Dev 3, If 3, Class=Vendor Specific Class, Driver=option, 480M
|__ Port 1: Dev 3, If 4, Class=Vendor Specific Class, Driver=option, 480M
|__ Port 1: Dev 3, If 5, Class=Vendor Specific Class, Driver=option, 480M
|__ Port 1: Dev 3, If 6, Class=Vendor Specific Class, Driver=option, 480M

The dmesg lists all the driver loading logs since system boot up:
dmesg
usb 1-1: new high-speed USB device number 3 using ehci-pci
usb 1-1: New USB device found, idVendor=12d1, idProduct=15c1

IPv6: ADDRCONF(NETDEV_UP): ens35u1c2: link is not ready
cdc_ether 1-1:2.0 ens35u1c2: kevent 12 may have been dropped

The command ifconfig -a will list all network interfaces loaded in the Linux system, the cellular module interface can be named differently depending on the distribution used but generally named wwan0 initially.
ifconfig -a
ens35u1c2 Link encap:Ethernet HWaddr 02:1e:10:1f:00:00
UP BROADCAST MULTICAST MTU:1500 Metric:1
RX packets:0 errors:0 dropped:0 overruns:0 frame:0
TX packets:0 errors:0 dropped:0 overruns:0 carrier:0
collisions:0 txqueuelen:1000
RX bytes:0 (0.0 B) TX bytes:0 (0.0 B)

the command ls can list the USB serial interfaces detected:
ls /dev/ttyUSB*
/dev/ttyUSB0 /dev/ttyUSB1 /dev/ttyUSB2 /dev/ttyUSB3 /dev/ttyUSB4

Once this far we can now start communicate with the cellular module over AT commands. There are different applications available in Linux that enables manual communication with serial interfaces:

minicom -D /dev/ttyUSB2
socat - /dev/ttyUSB2,crnl
etc.

Basic AT commands to set up the data connection:
ATI
Print general information about cellular module

AT+CPIN=1234
Enter the SIM PIN code

AT+CGDCONT=1,"IP","data.tre.se"
Set the operator APN name to use for the data connectivity

AT^NDISDUP=1,1,
Activate the data connection for the network interface exposed to host system with the APN profile previously created.

Once ^NDISSTAT:1,,,"IPV4" is received you now have a active data connection to the network operator.

Now you can use a DHCP client in your host system to request an IP address from the cellular network:
dhclient -v ens35u1c2
Listening on LPF/ens35u1c2/02:1e:10:1f:00:00
Sending on LPF/ens35u1c2/02:1e:10:1f:00:00
Sending on Socket/fallback
DHCPDISCOVER on ens35u1c2 to 255.255.255.255 port 67 interval 3 (xid=0xf1045e28)
DHCPREQUEST of 2.64.107.209 on ens35u1c2 to 255.255.255.255 port 67 (xid=0x285e04f1)
DHCPOFFER of 2.64.107.209 from 2.64.107.210
DHCPACK of 2.64.107.209 from 2.64.107.210
bound to 2.64.107.209 -- renewal in 235255 seconds.

You now have a working cellular network data connection in your Linux system.

Question

How to collect initial diagnostics data and logs for Huawei cellular modules needed when requesting Techship technical support?

Solution

In order to troubleshoot and solve a technical problem, we ask you to please provide information about your system and logs from the related Huawei module when creating a technical support ticket.

Problem description of what exact problem is and in what precise situations present

Describe the host system:
-Hardware (system board, peripherals...)
-Operating system and detailed versions (E.g. Windows, Linux release, kernel...)
-Drivers and driver versions

Identify the precise details of cellular module found on label:
-Model
-SKU/BOM or P/N code
(For RMA returns the IMEI number is required also)

If you are running on a Linux based system, please capture the terminal logs bellow:
uname -a
lsusb
lsusb -t
ifconfig -a
ls -l /dev/serial/by-id
ls -l /sys/bus/usb-serial/devices

Question

How can we establish data connection for cellular modules in Windows 8 and Windows 10 systems?

Solution

Microsoft Windows desktop versions starting from Windows 8 and newer have built in data connection manager for WWAN, Wifi etc. that can be used to configure, control and establish the data connection of cellular module that support MBIM interface, which most cellular modules do.

The connection managers settings and controls can be found and accessed on Windows desktop start menu through the network icon (see picture).

The Cellular tab can be found in Windows system settings and if needed the connection APN details can be manually entered through "Advanced options".

Windows 10 connection settings Windows 10 connection manager
Question

Why is there no serial interface for AT-commands available in Microsoft Windows 8/10 and newer, while in Windows 7 all the traditional module serial interfaces are available?

Solution

Microsoft demands cellular module vendors to use the Mobile Broadband Interface Model (MBIM) interface for signaling in newer operating systems like Windows 8 and 10 rather than the previous serial based control channels with AT commands.

The serial ports are phased out and enumeration in the host system of these are dropped by many manufacturers because of Microsofts requirements.

The connections can be controlled graphically in Windows by the systems built in connection manager as well as by commands in the command prompt starting with: netsh mbn
