Thanks Aleksander, Bjorn, Markus ! The qmicli to change from raw-ip to
802-3 did work afterall - what I was missing yesterday is that I did not do
an rmmod and modprobe of cdc_qdm and qmi_wwan. Today I reissued those
commands and did rmmod and modprobe again and with that it worked.. Couple
of qns below
1. I see that the qmi_wwan.c already has a "hack" in place to detect raw-ip
Vs 802-3 and switch modes appropriately as explained here (
http://firstname.lastname@example.org/msg19918.html) - so
is that not sufficient to workaround this issue ? Why would we need this
qmicli forced setting on top of it ? Just for my understanding ..
2. The qmicli force 802-3 at times takes multiple attempts (multiple times
the cli has to be issued) before it finally reports that its operating in
802-3 mode. I am assuming its something related to how fast/slow the
firmware processes these commands ? Any ideas ?
Once again, thanks a lot to all of your for helping with this .. I was
calling up AT&T with this problem report and was not getting anywhere with
