Model : TL-MR3420

Hardware Version : V2

Firmware Version : 3.14.9 Build 140319 Rel.38485n

ISP : Slovak Telekom


Hi,

Purchased from my mobile provider (Slovak Telekom) 3G USB modem for my travels (Huawei E3131h-2). I need to connect more devices to the internet so I've got also MR3420 v2.3 that should be able to handle such task.

However the 3G USB modem doesn't seem to be recognized by the router. Before purchase I read some forums (mostly form users from Poland) and they claimed that more recent firmware should support this model. Or they used .bin file for modem identification.

Tried the firmware which was shipped with router (3.13.27 Build 120905 Rel.73281n) but no luck. Then tried another 2 versions (3.13.27 Build 121206 Rel.60215n and 3.14.9 Build 140319 Rel.38485n) but again no luck.
The original one did not even listed Slovakia in country drop-down. The other two did. However not sure if it has any impact on idetification.

Is there some trick or step by step guide how to make the modem work with the router?
Could you please share your experience or firmware or modem config .bin file for the type mentioned?

I'd be very grateful.
Thank you in advance

You may try this to make a bin file. www.tp-link.com/resources/download/TP-LINK_3G_USBSniffer_Guide_105.zip
As I know, it is for Windows XP only.

From what I have found, the only FW making E3131h-2 compatible with MR3420v2.x is Gargoyle:
2014-06-07 wersja 1.6.1.3
- ZMIANA: aktualizacja usb-modeswitch/usb-modeswitch-data do najnowszej wersji (m.in wsparcie dla E3131h-2)

I have tested that, and even the current version has stability issues with my e3131.

Anyway I am getting stability issues even on the current last version 1.6.2.1
