Current firmware for HWIC 3G-GSM

Hi all

I am trying tu update the firnmware of a HWIC 3G-GSM within an 1841.

What is the correct firmware?

I have tried

K2_0_7_35 and K1_0_2_18 from

http://tools.cisco.com/support/downloads/go/Model.x?mdfid=281295483&mdfLevel=Sub-Category&treeName=Wireless&modelName=Cisco%203G%20Wireless%20WAN%20%28GPRS%2FEDGE%2FUMTS%2FHSDPA%29%20High-Speed%20Wan%20Interface%20Card&treeMdfId=278875243

and I have also tried

F1_2_3_22 from

http://tools.cisco.com/support/downloads/go/Model.x?mdfid=282745088&mdfLevel=Sub-Category&treeName=Wireless&modelName=Cisco%203G%20Wireless%20WAN%20%28GPRS%2FEDGE%2FUMTS%2FHSDPA%2FHSUPA%29%20Interface%20Card&treeMdfId=278875243

But whenever I issue

microcode reload cellular 0 1 gsm modem-provision

I get

Modem returned following error to Download Start Request:Wrong image for this product

So what might be wrong here?

Thanks for any hint,

Grischa

Re: Current firmware for HWIC 3G-GSM

Hi Grischa,

Did you extract the firmware before the upgrade? 

archive tar /xtract source-url destination-url

Can you post the log of the whole process?

Do you have the same results with a H firmware, for example H1_1_9_33 ?

Cheers

Re: Current firmware for HWIC 3G-GSM

Hi Marco

thank you very much. With H1_1_9_33 the update went through without any problem.

What is the difference between K and H? The latest H release is quite old compared with the K one.

And how should one know that H is correct and K is not?

Best regards,

Grischa

Re: Current firmware for HWIC 3G-GSM

Hi Grischa,

I'm glad it helped!

H releases are for HWIC-3G-GSM, while K releases are for the new HWIC-3G-HSPA. The two cards have different hardware, and the firmwares are not compatible.

H2_0_8_19 is the latest one for your card. However, I'd suggest to do this upgrade only if stricly necessary: on HWIC-3G-GSM, if you upgrade to 2.x.x firmware, you cannot roll back to version 1.x.x

Cheers!

Thanks Marco. I dont know why Cisco keep making things difficult!! They should seperate them in the download section.

Current firmware for HWIC 3G-GSM

Hi Marco,

I maybe a bit off the topic,but I got a hwic-3g-gsm card but I'm failing to change the band it came with ,the firmware it is showing is H1_1_9_3MCAP C:/WS/,should I upgrade to be able to do anything?

Is there a way of reseting the card to factory defaults ?

Thanks

Which steps are you following to change band? Perhaps you can paste the logs.

An upgrade can help, although we cannot be sure.
