- How to Configure MOBITEK S80 SMS Modem to Use SMS API and to Access Internet via 3G at the Same Time
- USB Driver of MOBITEK S80 Supports Windows Server 2008, Windows Server 2012 and Windows 10
- How to Set-Up MOBITEK S80 Modem in VirtualBox
- Goto “AirCard Watcher -> Setting -> Messaging -> Routing option” and select “Circuit Switched”.
- After you have set to “Circuit Switched”, you can use MOBITEK SMS API and access internet via 3G at the same time.
- Note that AirCard Watcher (through Sierra Wireless AirCard HSDPA Modem) uses different COM port, in this example, it is using COM port number 3.
- First, install AirCard Watcher.
- Insert SIM card into MOBITEK S80 3G Modem and connect it to PC or laptop.
- A new modem in “Device Manager” will appear — “Sierra Wireless AirCard HSDPA Modem”.
- Run AirCard Watcher.
- AirCard Watcher will automatically detect the MOBITEK S80 3G Modem and show the name of TELCO. In this example, it is “U Mobile”. It will also show “3G”.
- Click “Connect” button to connect to 3G network. If successfully connected then the red signal bar will turn to green and the “Connect” button will change to “Disconnect”.
- Try accessing the internet via a web browser. AirCard Watcher will show the upload and download speed (refer to red box).
- To check data usage, click on the “meter” icon (red box)
Note: if you are NOT using VirtualBox, then you may skip step 1.
- Map the COM Port of Modem (COM3 in this tutorial) to COM1 (or any COM port n umber) in VirtualBox. If this step is missed, then MOBITEK S80 will not response in CuteCom or Putty (terminal).
- To check if MOBITEK S80 is connected to the USB port, type “lusb”. It will show MOBITEK S80 Modem as “Sierra Wireless, Inc. MC8700 Modem”.
- But in this VirtualBox (virtual machine), MOBITEK S80 is connected under “Serial Ports” (as per step 1) and not under “USB” of the VirtualBox. To check which serial port is MOBITEK S80 Modem connected, type in “dmesg | grep tty”. In this example, it shows “ttyS0” which is COM1 that was set in step 1 above.
- Run CuteCom. Select “/dev/ttyS0” in device and click Open device. Then type the AT command.
- Connect modem to host OS.Open VirtualBox, go to the setting of your virtual machine.
- Go to Serial Ports and set the setting as below:
- Run the virtual machine.
- Go to device manager in VirtualBox to check the COM Port. In this example, the MOBITEK S80 Modem that is connected to the host machine in COM port 6 is mapped to COM port 1 in VirtualBox.
- In VirtualBox, the application must use COM port 1 instead of COM port 6.
