Has anyone tried using a 3G or 4G USB SIM card modem in a BeagleBoard or PocketBeagle (and indeed, with a Bela)?
Something like this: https://consumer.huawei.com/en/mobile-broadband/e3372/specs/
Would be great if anyone has any tips before I start buying things to test!
OK so of course right after I post that question I find this:
That appears to be an explanation for how to use a similar model USB dongle for internet on a BeagleBoard. Would there be any reasons why a similar approach would not work on a PocketBeagle with a Bela attached?
that seems ok. You will have to use ip a instead of ifconfig, but most of the other steps will be fairly similar
ok cool. I'll probably order one of those to test and report back in case anyone else is interested. thanks!
yannseznec Hello! did you manage to make it work ? I'm trying to do the same.
cynthiak this project got put on hold, I'm afraid, so I never tested it out. Good luck! I'd be super interested to hear if/when you make any progress.
yannseznec yes it worked out! I just put directly the credentials in "/etc/network/interfaces"
