Where can I obtain firmware for 3G Wireless WAN card

I am trying to find the firmware for the following Cisco 3G card.

Cisco Part #  EHWIC-3G-EVDO-V=

I searched for it in Support> Downloads but have not had success thus far in finding the firmware.

Thank You

Re:Where can I obtain firmware for 3G Wireless WAN card

I've installed a couple of these and the drivers load from the card. Only issues Ive seen are on 15.X code if licensing isn't setup for IOS.

Re:Where can I obtain firmware for 3G Wireless WAN card

check out this path:

please double-check if that is the firmware that is compatible for your card before you proceed with copying / pasting the commands below.

Downloads Home > Products > Cisco Interfaces and Modules > Cisco High-Speed WAN Interface > Cards Cisco 3G Wireless WAN (GPRS/EDGE/UMTS/HSDPA) High-Speed Wan Interface Card > GSM Modem Firmware-K2_0_7_46

to install:

you will probably have to change the slot number below (the part that says "0 3" under microcode reload)

- get the file on the router using tftp / ftp / whatever

copy ftp://x.x.x.x/8790_k2_0_7_46.tar flash:

- extract contents of tar

archive tar /xtract flash:8790_k2_0_7_46.tar flash:

- upgrade cell code

microcode reload cellular 0 3 gsm modem-provision flash:FWUpgradeConfigFile.txt

wait about 5-10 minutes and run "show cellular 0/3/0 all" to see the current version.

Another tip: for troubleshooting or whatnot you can't reload a cell card manually. The microcode upgrade reloads the card for you, but under normal circumstances you cannot reload the card (ie. hw-mod reload etc). With a hidden cisco command you can enable this though:

conf t

  service internal

end

test cellular 0/3/0 modem-power-cycle

just thought you might like to know

When you are done, remove the service internal from the config.

Once I hear back from the customer, I will then be able to mark "Correct Answer".  I am almost certain that will be the case.

Anyway, thanks for your very precise and detailed answer.

Where can I obtain firmware for 3G Wireless WAN card

just a heads up though about the IOS version, I had an issue with running 15.0 and using cellular cards. I was advised by TAC to run 15.1 because I was told it contained a lot of cellular fixes. FYI
