Re: ZTE MF60 3G Modem Not Working with ModemManager/NetworkManager

Hi all,

I've been trying to get a ZTE MF60 3G modem working with MM/NM but even
though recent updates have provided some progress it's still quite not
working. It's not explicitly listed in the page of Supported Devices [1]
so I'm not sure whether there is some fundamental problem with the
device or is this merely a fixable issue somewhere in the stack.

Posted an update to the bug, at the moment it looks like the device
simply doesn't respond to the StartNetwork request via QMI.  Some of the
early hotspots are known not to implement QMI well, but I think we'll
want to test with a Gobi 1K (which is also NAS 1.0 and very early QMI)
just to make sure that still works.

Yeah, known issue. The MF60 doesn't play well with the WDS service in QMI; see

Quoting Bjørn:
"3G connection management is done using the built-in web server.  Does
not look like it can be managed by QMI.  But many QMI_NAS and QMI_DMS
commands are supported."

I actually bought a MF60 mysef in ebay to test it, but the firmware it
comes with doesn't allow USB connection, only works as MiFi device...
:/ May try to reflash it with some firmware that allows QMI one day...
or otherwise re-sell it in ebay...

Anyway, I actually delayed QMI support in the ZTE plugin just because
of this device. MM 1.2 now allows QMI for ZTE devices, but we should
probably setup that blacklist that we talked about some months ago,
for devices like this one.
