Greetings, All. First post. Hope I’m not asking anything with an obvious answer.
Recently bought a LTE IoT 2 Click - MikroElektronika module from an Australian supplier.
Using the main UART interface, I’ve managed to get the GNSS side of the module working to my satisfaction.
Using an ALDI mobile SIM, tested as working in a normal phone, I’ve tried to connect to a local cell.
AT+CREG? only gives 0,0 and AT+CGREG gives 0,4.
This command has been repeated over several minutes, with the same result.
The network status LED on the module indicates I have not registered to a network.
(And the CREG results, above, would seem to back this up.)
I’ve tried two different kinds of LTE antenna in the correct socket!, with no change.
I’ve tried AT&F and AT+CFUN as well as following many other posts across many forums and while they seem to target NB-IoT or CAT-M1 solutions, I still can’t get my module to see the network.
I’ve tried searching for available networks (I have access to all three Australian carriers) yet the only result is a network operated by a railway company.
Being what I assume is a closed network, I could not register with it.
I’ve also tried QNavigator V1.4.
QN, at the end of first initialisation, pops up two windows, one claiming The module model is not matching. Please restart, select correct module and try again!. Then a few seconds later Fail to register to the network!
I could not find a setting to ‘select correct module’, so not sure why that message.
SIM information can be read via AT commands okay.
Have I bought a dud module or is there something I haven’t done?
My intended use for this module is for SMS i/o rather than NB-IoT or CAT-M1.
Module model: BG96MAR02A07M1G
With thanks, in advance.
