What 3G/4G USB Modems are supported?

LAST UPDATED: February 23, 2017

NOTE:

The majority of these modems are reported as working by customers in their setup. Mobile network providers may have regional differences in modem hardware and how the devices are recognized by systems. This means that the same model that is reported as working on one carrier in one country may not necessarily work on a different carrier in a different country.

3. What firmware version do I need on Cube to use additional 3G/4G modems?
      • Firmware version 5.0.0 or later; previous versions only support the Verizon Pantech UML-290.


4. My modem doesn't appear to be connecting when plugged into Cube, what can I do?
      • Check if there is a SIM lock on the modem that requires a PIN code; you can usually disable this by putting the modem's SIM card into a phone and turning it off. Consult with your mobile carrier for instructions.
      • Check if your modem is set to automatically connect; this is usually done through a software client setting on a laptop/desktop computer. Consult with your mobile carrier for instructions.
      • Check with your carrier to see if different APN settings are needed based on using a pre-paid vs. post-paid mobile broadband account.
      • FOR ADVANCED USERS ONLY: certain Huawei modems can appear as multiple devices (CD-ROM, memory card, modem, etc.); to put them in a "modem-only" mode you can try the following:
        1. Use a terminal emulator app on Windows (e.g. PuTTY, KiTTY or HyperTerminal) or Mac (ZTerm)
        2. Connect to the modem and send "AT^U2DIAG=0" to the serial port associated with it
        3. The modem should answer OK; on the next power up nothing except the modem device should be detected
        4. To restore your modem to show all devices, connect as above and send "AT^U2DIAG=256"; check with this list to see which command should be sent depending on your model


5. Can you add support for my carrier and modem?
    • It may be possible; please email support@teradek.com with your mobile broadband provider / carrier and the model numbers of the USB modems you currently own or are considering to see if support could be integrated into Cube for a future firmware release.
    • You can also send us the modem for testing by creating a support ticket.
