CELLULAR IOT HAT Connetion Unstable

Hi,

For a while I managed to see my IOT HAT getting ip.Using QMI interface. So I left it over night and when I check next morning no internet was there. After that I rebooted and since then I get a loop of
requestRegistrationStat2 MMC:0, MNC: 0 , PS: Detached, DataCap : Unknown.
requestRegistrationStat2 MMC:311, MNC: 480 , PS: Detached, DataCap : Unknown

I have tried with 2 HATs in 2 different pi and both have same issue. I was really happy when I saw it work now Im frustrated as I have bought 2 HAT and planned to buy many more but can not get reliable behavior from this shield. Any help is appreciated.

I can reconnect but connection fails overnight everytime I try

Any ideas why my connection fails over night and I must restart to reconnect

@frank.lombardo,

Add “persist” to /etc/ppp/peers/provider file. The persist option will keep pppd alive in case of a disconnect or when it can’t connect in the first place.

https://tldp.org/HOWTO/Leased-Line/pppd.html

requestRegistrationState2 err = 110
QmiThreadSendQMITimeout pthread_cond_timeout_np timeout

are the errors displayed when I get status of service

I am using Using QMI interface not PPP

We recommend that you set up PPP connection for a stable connection.

IQMI was used as it is the recomendation in your guide:

Since this topic is in the “Cellular IoT HAT” category, I thought you were using Cellular IoT HAT.

Thank you seems I was using wrong guide for my device
