EC20/EC25 connection issue

Hi,

This is my first time to use Quectel modules.
I’m working on an EC20 LTE module (at least this is what it prints on the metal cover) with NanoPi Neo Core. I followed the steps provided by FriendlyElec here. When I started the tool, it can’t connect to the Internet. Here is the output.

I’ve searched the forum with similar issues but still have no idea what I can do next.

Another thing that also confuses me. On the metal cover of the module, it marks “EC20”, but when I check the connected USB device, it shows “EC25”. I’m not sure if it makes any difference though.

Hi,

Even I’m facing the exact same issue with Quectel’s EC20 LTE modem. I followed the same steps for my NanoPi Neo Air and everytime I get the “Packet dropped” error.
