    Using ONLY the modem on the M7350 [SOLVED]

    Model :

    Hardware Version :

    Firmware Version :

    ISP : [/COLOR]

    I have a M7350 which is working fine. However it's WiFi range is somewhat limited. I also have a Mikrotik hAP ac lite router for the house which provides more than adequate coverage round the house. The Mikrotik also has a USB slot. I want to try and link up my M7350 via it's USB cable to the Mikrotik as a MODEM only and use the Mikrotik's WiFi router for the wireless stuff.

    I have some questions regarding this please:

    1. Has anyone tried this? Doesn't necessarily have to have been with a Mikrotik. Just using the M7350 as a modem and connecting to a WiFi router.

    2. How would I disable the Wireless function on the M7350 so that it doesn't clash with the Mikrotik?

    All help gratefully received with thanks.

    The USB port on the M7350 is for you to access the SD card files or get internet on your pc after driver installed. I don't think it will work as a regular modem.

    you can disable Wireless SSID broadcast on its management interface on your phone or pc.

    Thanks Enson for your response. MikroTik do an LTE modem/router for the home user. I guess I'll have to try that.

    I just wanted to update this thread to let everyone know that I have successfully managed to use the USB connection of the M7350 to connect to the Mikrotik router. My detailed post is here:

    Although I recognise that this is very specific to the Mikrotik, it is worth noting that the M7350 via it's USB port can work as an LTE modem. Hope this helps someone.
