    HI guys

    Bit of a Mystery – I am trying to USB tether my Nokia 8 (latest patch on 8.1.0) to my asus router in a vehicle.. its an Asus DSL-N55U c1and basically the tethering doesnt work.. it’s running the latest beta .572 ( I have tried several)

    If i plug my wifes Sony Z2 it works fine.. straight away.. no issues.

    Nokia – not a blink of anything – basically it seems that the asus finds the sony and hotplug does its thing to create the usb as an ethernet connection for the WAN – with the nokia it just stops at the add high speed device.

    I’m sure that VF Aus dont limit USB tethering.. based on that it works fine on my windows 10 laptop!

    log extract from the nokia connecting

    2011-01-01 08:04:44 kernel: usb 1-1: new high speed USB device using rt3xxx-ehci and address 14
    2011-01-01 08:04:45 kernel: usb 1-1: configuration #1 chosen from 1 choice

    it never gets to the hotplug entry that the sony does… that was the end of the log after switching tethering on

    the sony looks like

    2011-01-01 08:02:10 kernel: usb 1-1: new high speed USB device using rt3xxx-ehci and address 3
    2011-01-01 08:02:10 kernel: usb 1-1: configuration #1 chosen from 1 choice
    2011-01-01 08:02:10 kernel: usb0: register ‘rndis_host’ at usb-rt3xxx-1, RNDIS device, 02:10:05:6c:01:7d
    2011-01-01 08:02:11 hotplug: add net usb0.
    2011-01-01 08:02:12 hotplug: Got net usb0, vid 0xfce, pid 0x71af.
    2011-01-01 08:02:13 hotplug: set net usb0.
    2011-01-01 08:02:17 WAN(11) Connection: Wan link up

    Interestingly this also happens on my RT ac68u (Merlin) no USB fallback same log entry…

     

    Anyone got a Nokia 8 to try?

     

    Thanks

    So you have set up as follows:

    In Advanced WAN: Dual WAN

    Enable Dual WAN – On
    Primary WAN – WAN
    Secondary WAN – USB
    Dual WAN mode – Fail Over

    In Advanced WAN: Internet Connection

    WAN Type – USB
    Enable USB Modem – Yes
    Location – Manual

    Then enable Tethering on your USB Tethering on Phone after plugging in USB cable.

    I realise you say, you had this working for the Sony, but if this does not work, then I assume the Router does not support this phone, maybe try an much older router firmware just for testing purposes ?

    Was Sony cable and Nokia Cable the same, or are they different, maybe try a second Nokia USB cable ?

    To test Nokia Tehering, can you tether your Nokia via a laptop etc. and does it work?

    FYI -Does not support iPhone either (or at least did not last time I tested), so a workaround can be found here?

    Nope even simpler – under WAN – type USB – and then android phone – so its the primary WAN and dual WAN is disabled. (for the DSL-N55u) on the RT-AC68u however then yes I tested it this way.. with the same result.

    Tried the release firmware with same result – with android tethering there should be no support required – its vanilla android same as the pixel etc..

    Was Sony cable and Nokia Cable the same, or are they different, maybe try a second Nokia USB cable ?

    Yep 2 different cables for the nokia – and as the nokia and sony use different connection  (USB C and micro usb) they were not the same.

    To test Nokia Tehering, can you tether your Nokia via a laptop etc. and does it work?

    Yep works fine..

    FYI -Does not support iPhone either (or at least did not last time I tested), so a workaround can be found here?

    Noted – but I’m not buying additional hardware – its purely for a local network on a vehicle with the bonus of internet when the phone is plugged in – if I go that route i’ll just buy a usb modem

    Thanks for your help :)

    @ 5teve, no problem, alas with an ASUS router and Nokia. it appears your aptions are limited.

    Alas I am iPhone, so cannot test ;)
