RPi 4 w/ 3G/4G Base HAT QMI does not gain lease

Hello,

I recently purchased the 3G/4G&LTE Base HAT and ran through the Tutorial to connect to my RPi 4b (skipping steps 4-7 as stated) but the ./quectel-CM script stalls at “udhcpc: no lease, failing”.

The modem is connected and I can see the wwan0 interface in “ifconfig”

I am using an AT&T sim card and the cmd “sudo ./quectel-CM -s NXTGENPHONE”

below are the outputs of the script and “dmesg | grep tty*”

Any help with getting this connected to the internet would be greatly appreciated!

Had the same problem, I ran the installer after deleting the files folder containing the QMI files etc and that solved the issue for me.

Hi @dillonsisneros

These errors relate to the configuration of DNS servers in your resolv.conf file.
Also, the modem fails to get IP address from network. You could check the network status before establish wwan0.

AT+CGREG?
AT+COPS?
AT+CGDCONT?
AT+CGPADDR

Same issue here…

Problem solved…
The dhcpcd service was running and interfered with udhcpc
