Connect in Windows 10

Hallo,

I ordered a “Raspberry Pi Cellular IoT HAT – LTE-M & NB-IoT & eGPRS” module and trying to connect it to my Windows 10 laptop with the USB cable delivered with it.

Seems in Windows the module is not detected. How should I proceed to get it visible/connected in WIndows 10 ?

Hello @gert.ceulemans-7022

If you want to use the Raspberry Pi Cellular IoT HAT standalone with a Windows Host, first complete the following checklist.

  1. Windows Driver should be installed. If not please download and install it.

  2. The HATs Power over USB is not connected by default. VBUS and the 5V should be connected.

Once your Hardware and drive are ready, connect the HAT to the Windows host device via USB and press the POWERKEY for around 1.5 seconds to turn on the module. After turning on the module, the devices will appear under the device manager.

Hello,

Do you mean that we need to connect both wholes (VBUS and 5V) with each other on the board ?
Is it enough to put a cable between both ? Or should we solder a wire between both ? Or do you have something that we can use to connect both ?

Thanks
Gert

The best way is to solder 2 pin headers and use a jumper with them.
If you don’t have them, you can simply solder a jumper cable between them.
