Will the onboard mini pcie slot support the Sierra mc7455


(Robert) #1

I am looking at getting this router to simplify my current setup, I have the original Bananapi with a sierra mc7455 connected over usb. It works great but it is bulky.

I know I will need a sim connection but I have that covered. Just need to know if the onboard mini pcie slot wil support the 4g modem

You can’t use onboard mpcie slot because it has no usb connect

Please explain

If the mini pcie would work for WIFI module, why not a 4g lte modem

The onboard m-pcie is a standard slot. It has no usb 2.0, 3.0 interface, just pcie interface. If you want to use you have to buy this module https://m.vi.aliexpress.com/item/32797604263.html?trace=wwwdetail2mobilesitedetail&productId=32797604263&productSubject=Mini-PCI-Express-Mini-pcie-to-USB-2-0-Adapter-pci-E-Card-with-SIM-Card

Any way to use this module without running it to the outside usb port?
