How to activate the data connection for Huawei cellular modules over the USB network interface in Linux?
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:
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:
/: 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:
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.
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
RX bytes:0 (0.0 B) TX bytes:0 (0.0 B)
the command ls can list the USB serial interfaces detected:
/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
Basic AT commands to set up the data connection:
Print general information about cellular module
Enter the SIM PIN code
Set the operator APN name to use for the data connectivity
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 126.96.36.199 on ens35u1c2 to 255.255.255.255 port 67 (xid=0x285e04f1)
DHCPOFFER of 188.8.131.52 from 184.108.40.206
DHCPACK of 220.127.116.11 from 18.104.22.168
bound to 22.214.171.124 -- renewal in 235255 seconds.
You now have a working cellular network data connection in your Linux system.
How to change USB composition mode to Mobile Broadband Interface (MBIM) that is used by Windows 8 and 10 systems for data connectivity and enabling support for the built-in connection manager in Windows?
This is done by sending AT commands to the Modem or AT serial interfaces that are accepting AT commands and changing the USB endpoint composition:
Sierra Wireless EM74xx, MC74xx series module:
Sierra Wireless EM73xx, MC73xx series module:
Simcom SIM7xxx series modules:
ZTE Welink ME3630 series:
Telit LE910x V2:
On Huawei modules the USB mode changing is done automatically by the Windows drivers and otherwise defaults to the modules standard endpoint interfaces.
How to collect initial diagnostics data and logs for Huawei cellular modules needed when requesting Techship technical support?
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:
-SKU/BOM or P/N code
(For RMA returns the IMEI number is required also)
The logs from module firmware can be acquired by accessing one of the USB enumerated serial (COM) interfaces accepting AT commands. (In Windows this is the PC UI serial interface). Send the following commands to module and capture the text output and include them when creating the the technical support ticket.
The support ticket can be created after login at: https://techship.com/technical_support/
How can we establish data connection for cellular modules in Windows 8 and Windows 10 systems?
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".
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?
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 mb
Microsoft: Overview of mobile broadband
How can we use the Huawei ME909s series modules with dual Ethernet interfaces and separate APNs in parallel?
The Huawei ME909s series modules can now support dual APN and dual ECM network interfaces starting from firmware version 11.617.06.00.00.
This gives the host systems the ability to separate the IP traffic for dedicated services or use cases.
A SIM subscription supporting separate active APN connections in parallel is also required.
Activate the second USB CDC ECM network interface with the following AT command:
The interface connections are established with the following AT commands:
AT^NDISDUP=1,1,"< APN1 >"
AT^NDISDUP=2,1,"< APN2 >"
Please observe that this feature is only supported by the Linux systems and drivers currently.
