Hi,

I've experimented with Huawei ME909s-120 mPCIE card (EU version), and got it working by just adding device ID:s to the kernel u3g module. The changes are:

Patch file is attached. I have tested this with PCEngines apu2c4 board and OPNsense. I'll also try to test it with PfSense soon enough, and plain FreeBSD if necessary.

How should I continue to get this change into an official FreeBSD release?

So the proper way to submit this is put up Mailing List post, then submit PR for a feature and post on phabricator with diff for review and then hopefully somebody pulls it along for inclusion..I think that is the route to get it committed. Maybe CC: The esteemed HPS

Great job on this. We need better LTE support.
You should test on FreeBSD. mpd5 is a little tough but I have the 2 files needed posted here on the forum. mpd.conf and mpd.script is all you need. PPP works but is a pain so just leapfrog to mpd5. It is what opn/pfsense uses for cellular connections.

Just out of curiosity, is this a CDMA or GSM radio?

Thanks! I'll try to install FreeBSD to the apu2 board and look into mpd5 more closely.

It's GSM radio. I quess it's very similar to ME909u-521 (which is already supported by FreeBSD), but this is LET cat4 compared to cat3 on the 909u, and without GPS.
Theoretical speed is 150 Mbps. I got 20 Mbit/s out of it right away, so not too bad, but I hope I could improve it a little.

I used to long time this card with pfSense (freebsd based) and it worked properly.
After updating to the new 2.3.3 version it has stopped working.
Hi,

Original post was about ME909s, You seem to have ME909u. I haven't tried my card on pfSense 2.3.3 yet, but I can't see any related changes in the u3g module, so FreeBSD support should be OK.

What can I do to check? The serial ports are missing.
