BPI R2 - 4G LTE Modem / OpenWRT

Is there anyone having tried to connect a 4G/LTE Modem on the mini PCIe slot with an adapter to get a SIM slot ? I’m still looking for the best solution ? M.2(NGFF) to USB type mini PCI-E adapter with SIM slot ? I even don’t know if the mini PCIe really works on the last LEDE image … :frowning: Any idea, experience or help would be apreciated :slight_smile:

only an idea found while surfing: http://tiebing.blogspot.de/2015/03/linux-running-4g-lte-modem.html

maybe you can also use a newer device from the vendor (seems to be supported since 2015)…

here is a List of actual cards: https://www.sierrawireless.com/products-and-solutions/embedded-solutions/networking-modules/

Hi Sam. I am also looking for such 4G/LTE Module support for R2 Board. I am trying this module with my R2 Board, http://www.quectel.com/product/ec25minipcie.htm I will share my experience & detailed steps in case I got successfully interfaced. Any kind of help from others are appreciated.

TIA, Prakash.

Hello Prakash, I will do a test with a SIMCOM SIM7600C including a SIM Slot directly on the board, because there’s no SIM slot on the R2 Board as far as i know. This module is based on a Qualcomm chipset. For now, i’m still waiting for the delivery. Let’s keep informed.

it is standard PCIE interface ,Not support some USB 4G dongle via this interface.

What about USB 4G LTE modem? I was using some on Alix 2D2 running LEDE before.

Hello, What does it really mean ? I’m not speaking about USB device, but mini-PCIE board …
