I successfully configured and tested
a HWIC-3G-GSM card on an IOS 1800
Connectivity problems have shown up
now that the router is in the field
(and without out-of-band management connection, unfortunately). To solve
the connectivity problem the only solution was to reload the router
(remind we could not access CLI).
The 3G provider has suggested to
"lock" the 3G card to GPRS mode.
Is this possible? What is meant by
locking is that the 3G card should
never switch to HSDPA when it's available. In fact we have noticed that
transitons GPRS <-> GPRS have occurred
in the past, but I haven't found
any IOS or modem config commands
to "lock" the card to GPRS mode.
Thanks for your advice,
Patrick De Muynck
