Not retrieving IP address with RM500Q-GL and 5G hat

Hi all,
I am using an RM500Q-GL with the Sixfab 5G hat on a Raspberry Pi 4B. I used all the information and source files provided an compiled the kernel and quectel-CM. Everything went smooth, no errors compiling.

However, I cannot get the connection to work as udhcpc it not retrieving an IP address. No matter what I have tried. I wonder if there has been a misconfiguration before compiling, or now afterwards in usage.

Here is my output of quectel-CM:

Any ideas? Help is appreciated.

Hello Mike,

Did you check the network registration status?

Hi Saeed,

yes I did.
CREG → 0, 1
CEREG → 0,1
PDP Context is active and the modem has an IP address.

Best regards

Hello Mike,

I believe, there is some issue with the quectel-cm tool. If you have followed the Quectel forum, there are similar issues mentioned.

Yes I know. And I also posted there again. Because those issues have never been publicly resolved. There is no final answer with the solution to those threads :slight_smile:
