This article will help you quickly take a Raspberry Pi and configure it as an Internet Router.

We focus on OpenWrt 22.03.1 software and Thales IoT Cellular module hardware.

Internet connectivity is achieved using the higher performance CDC-ECM "Wireless Ethernet Adapter" method. This needs the AT Command AT^SWWAN to be used to start the interface.

Hi Mullengers,

Why my Raspberry PI cannot detect the modem?

should I un-comment some of the line on the "install-rpi-4.sh"?

Thank you

In addion the modem I'm using is PLS-83W

PLS83-W connected over USB in its factory state will be recognised as a device called eth1 (not usb0 or wwan0).

so yes check the install script uses eth1.

to be honest you can easily configure this from the LuCI interface on web port :80 too.

 

Currently I have two choices eth0 and eth1, but when I choose the eth1 it says "Network device is not present".
