    Huawei E3276 not supported

    Region : Others

    Model : TL-MR3420

    Hardware Version : V2

    Firmware Version :

    ISP :


    Does anybody know how to make the Hauwei E3276 LTE dongle work with the TL-MR3420 V2.1?

    I have tried to create a bin file, but no success - does anybody have a bin file I could use?

    I have not been able to get a positive response from the support team on when this will be supported...

    Please help!

    Hauwei E3276 LTE is one of the latest 4G LTE modem released by Huawei.
    Not easy to make it compatible ...

    Thanks for the feedback, I have had to switch to an old 3G only dongle...

    Hi all,

    We (an international bunch of TPLINK enthusiasts) are working to get the E3276 going atm on the TPLINK MR series using OpenWRT software.

    It is not as scary as it sounds and you can easily revert back to TPLINK software ... if they ever fix it.

    BTW all the TPLINK 3G routers are currently limited to a max of 25Mbps throughput due to the modem protocols deployed. Read here.

    The E3276 support thread is here (Australia).

    The TPLINK router WIKI is here.

    Note OpenWRT software is not currently available for the MR3420 V2, but it's coming soon.

    Hi John

    That sounds like great news. I'll be watching for the release with interest.

    Does OpenWRT provide better mechanisms for access control and bandwidth data control?

    Working E3276 solution for many TPLINK routers HERE.

    Hi Graham,

    The E3276 is up and going after an international de-bug exercise and working images (28/02/2013) for the supported TPLINK routers is available.

    We await the Open WRT MR3420 V2 release.

    As soon as that happens I'll let you know.

    Re bandwidth control, the OpenWRT QoS package is included in our image. In all honesty I have not used it.

    Cheers

    Hi John

    Thanks. I'm looking forward to trying the new version.

    Regarding bandwidth control, what I have in mind is not really QoS where shaping is the key. I'm thinking more in terms of managing usage, as mentioned here:

    Hi Graham,

    Whilst I'm no expert, OpenWRT is modular, ie you plug in the packages you require for your application.

    That is not quite the case with our version as it non-standard and heavily modified to provide space for the additional fast modem drivers. The fast drivers are not currently in the OpenWRT builds, but our programmer can build any package into his image if there is space and system resources.

    Not even sure if OpenWRT has what you want, but have a look here.

    These additional modem protocols (required for the later faster modems) is no doubt providing a headache for the TPLINK programmers, as only slow PPP is currently supported. I suspect it may be a Ram space issue? Some newer modems like the E3276 don't even use PPP AFAIK.

    Cheers

    Here is a Beta MR3420 V2 firmware from TPLINK, which I have just received after months of nagging TPLINK for a solution to the 25Mbps limit problem.

    mr3420v2_en_3_13_30_up_boot(130227)Beta.rar

    I cannot test it at my current location; so any Beta testers out there that can put it through the hoops?

    My latest message read:

    Hi,

    I have reported this problem (which is the same for all TPlink usb modem routers), a number of times, with no resolution.

    Is there a Beta software version available that fixes the speed problem?

    25Mbps is the maximum download speed in the TP-LINK routers, despite the same usb modem in a laptop doing 60 – 70Mbps download.

    Also support for the Huawei E3276.

    The TPLINK Beta software is useless, albeit harmless.

    No fix for the E3276.

    No fix for 25Mbps speed limiting.
