03 – LTE (4G)
99 – Leave the current settings unchanged

You can also choose the order of their priority, in descending order, for example: the AT ^ SYSCFGEX = “0302”, 3fffffff, 2,4,7fffffffffffffff ,, In this case, the modem will attempt to connect to the LTE network first, and then to the 3G network, but work 2G networks. or an option: aT ^ SYSCFGEX = “030201”, 3fffffff, 2,4,7fffffffffffffff ,, this is equivalent to AT ^ SYSCFGEX = “00”, 3fffffff, 2,4,7fffffffffffffff ,,

Note: I will suggets you to not play with commands.


  1. Hi and thank you for the info above, I hope you can help with my problem: Do you have any idea on how to disable virtual CD-ROM on the Huawei E3531s – my router won’t recognize the modem, it just see it as usb disk. My E1552 works fine though, so I’m thinking that the probleme is that the E3531 is recognized as cd-rom first and then modem. I would have used putty and the AT^U2DIAG=0 command, but the modem doesn’t seem to have an COM port.

    Hope you can help:)


  2. Hi I am using E3276 with Raspberry pi (Rasbian OS), my application is to connect to internet automatically thru sakis3g, i have written code to get connection automatically whenever the connection is down, which is working fine now. But the problem is, it continuously works for few days (2 days) and then the dongle is not getting connection to internet at all (it says ‘Failed to Connect’). The solution i tried which is working fine is, manually i remove the dongle from raspberry pi and then connecting it to laptop (Windows OS) and used to browse once in laptop and then connecting it to raspberry pi, then it works thru my automated code, that involved sakis3g. This scenario continuous as i said for few days and then…. I tried once a solution that passing AT+CFUN=1,1 (Modem Reset Command) at the instance of getting Failed to Connect Prompt. It was working. So i incorporated the same command in my code before getting connection thru sakis3g. It was also working. I was very hope that i have solved the issue. But again the problem comes with the same scenario. Pl help me to get out of this issue. Many Thanks.
