Question

How can we activate and use dual stack IPv4 and IPv6 functionality on the Gosuncn ZTE Welink ME3630 series cellular modules in Linux?

Solution

This can be done by configuring and using the Gosuncn ZTE Welink ME3630 module in Linux the following way:

Check with AT commands that you are using the most recent firmware version on the cellular module:
AT+ZVN
ME3630E1CV1.0B19 [Jan 15 2019 16:03:19]

The module have to be switched from default USB mode in order to support this, in this mode it uses RNDIS interface and drivers instead in host.
This mode can be switched with AT commands:
AT+ZSWITCH=x
AT+ZADSET=r
Restart module:
AT+ZRST

The module will restart now and appear in system with the following USB IDs:
usb-devices
T: Bus=03 Lev=01 Prnt=01 Port=01 Cnt=03 Dev#= 9 Spd=480 MxCh= 0
D: Ver= 2.00 Cls=00(>ifc ) Sub=00 Prot=00 MxPS=64 #Cfgs= 1
P: Vendor=19d2 ProdID=0601 Rev=03.18
S: Manufacturer=Android
S: Product=Android
S: SerialNumber=b950269c
C: #Ifs= 5 Cfg#= 1 Atr=a0 MxPwr=500mA
I: If#=0x0 Alt= 0 #EPs= 1 Cls=e0(wlcon) Sub=01 Prot=03 Driver=rndis_host
I: If#=0x1 Alt= 0 #EPs= 2 Cls=0a(data ) Sub=00 Prot=00 Driver=rndis_host
I: If#=0x2 Alt= 0 #EPs= 2 Cls=ff(vend.) Sub=ff Prot=ff Driver=option
I: If#=0x3 Alt= 0 #EPs= 3 Cls=ff(vend.) Sub=00 Prot=00 Driver=option
I: If#=0x4 Alt= 0 #EPs= 3 Cls=ff(vend.) Sub=00 Prot=00 Driver=option

If the option driver is not attached initially it can be done so by force loading the driver:
modprobe option
echo 19d2 0601 > /sys/bus/usb-serial/drivers/option1/new_id

Activate the network interface in the Linux host system (check e.g. with dmesg what system named it to):
ip link set enp0s20u2 up

Make sure you have a cellular subscription and APN that allow usage of IPV4 and IPV6 functionality combined.
Default configuration with setting a empty string lets the module subscribe for an APN from cellular network:
AT+CGDCONT=1,"IPV4V6",""
With defined APN:
AT+CGDCONT=1,"IPV4V6","my.apn"
If you have to modify/set AT+CGDCONT, please re-register in cellular network e.g. by toggling:
AT+CFUN=0
AT+CFUN=1
(Enter PIN again with AT+CPIN if necessary)

Check that you are registered in the cellular network and module are attached on packet switched network and have got an IP:
AT+CGCONTRDP
+CGCONTRDP: 1,5,BREDBAND.TRE.SE,2.70.254.24,,80.251.201.177,80.251.201.178

Now start the network interface data connection:
With empty string APN details in second parameter, then module try to request them from network:
AT+ZECMCALL=1,"",3
Or with APN defined:
AT+ZECMCALL=1,"my.apn",3

You should receive bellow if successful:
+ZECMCALL: CONNECT
OK

Check the status of the network interface activation, both IPV4 and IPV6 information should be listed as bellow if successful:
AT+ZECMCALL?
+ZECMCALL: IPV4, 2.70.254.24, 2.70.254.25, 80.251.201.177, 80.251.201.178
+ZECMCALL: IPV6, 2a02:aa1:1018:5fc2:b532:a78c:7e20:fedb, , 2a02:aa0::55, 2a02:a6
OK

In Linux you should now run a DHCP client on the network interface in order to acquire an IPV4 adress:
dhclient -v enp0s20u2
Listening on LPF/enp0s20u2/56:60:35:1b:9f:7f
Sending on LPF/enp0s20u2/56:60:35:1b:9f:7f
Sending on Socket/fallback
DHCPDISCOVER on enp0s20u2 to 255.255.255.255 port 67 interval 3 (xid=0x914b302a)
DHCPOFFER of 2.70.254.24 from 2.70.254.25
DHCPREQUEST for 2.70.254.24 on enp0s20u2 to 255.255.255.255 port 67 (xid=0x2a304b91)
DHCPACK of 2.70.254.24 from 2.70.254.25 (xid=0x914b302a)
bound to 2.70.254.24 -- renewal in 19393 seconds.

Try ping an IPv4 address using the module network interface:
ping -4 -I enp0s20u2 8.8.8.8
PING 8.8.8.8 (8.8.8.8) from 2.70.254.24 enp0s20u2: 56(84) bytes of data.

rtt min/avg/max/mdev = 26.776/34.198/44.722/7.650 ms

Try ping an IPv6 address over the module interface:
ping -6 -I enp0s20u2 2600::
PING 2600::(2600::) from 2a02:aa1:1018:5fc2:c2:afb2:2c6e:66f3 enp0s20u2: 56 data bytes

rtt min/avg/max/mdev = 174.342/180.176/200.333/9.096 ms

Please note that this functionality is not supported in all firmware versions and target regional variants of the ME3630 series yet. Here tested on the ME3630 E1C version for European target region using ME3630E1CV1.0B19

Question

How to collect initial diagnostics data for Gosuncn ZTE WeLink cellular modules when requesting technical support?

Solution

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 cellular module when creating a technical support ticket via Techship.com.

Include a problem description of what exact problem is and in what precise situations it is present/occurring.

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

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
dmesg

The log output requested from the commands bellow, can be acquired from the module by accessing one of the USB enumerated serial (COM) interfaces accepting AT commands. (In Windows this is generally found listed as a Modem interface or AT commands serial interface in the device manager and in Linux it is usually found on some of the /dev/ttyUSB* interfaces). Send the following commands to module and capture the text output and include them when creating the the technical support ticket.

Enable input command echo:

Question

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?

Solution

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:
AT!ENTERCND=”A710”
AT!USBCOMP=1,1,100D
AT!RESET

Sierra Wireless EM73xx, MC73xx series module:
AT!ENTERCND=”A710”
AT!UDUSBCOMP=8
AT!RESET

Simcom SIM7xxx series modules:
AT+CUSBPIDSWITCH=9003,1,1
AT+CRESET

ZTE Welink ME3630 series:
AT+ZSWITCH=8
AT+ZRST

Telit LM940:
AT#USBCFG=2
AT#REBOOT

Telit LE910x V2:
AT#USBCFG=3
AT#REBOOT

On Huawei modules the USB mode changing is done automatically by the Windows drivers and otherwise defaults to the modules standard endpoint interfaces.

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".
