Hello, as the title states I am trying to set up my AC68U router flashed with the latest DD WRT to use my Novatel 620L USB modem on the Verizon network as the primary source of internet. I have already set the router up with my iphone USB tethering to the router and everything works perfectly but I can't get the 620L to work. I have of course enabled USB over IP and then under the settings I have selected:

Mobile Broadband
Dial: *99***3#
APN: VZWINTERNET
Force LTE: tried both enabled and not

All other settings blank or auto, is there something I am missing? Like I said the iPhone tethering works perfectly but I got this for my parents who don't have other options and the USB modem is really needed.

That modem is still listed as a work-in-progress, but check out the links in this thread for some possible help, and keep us posted... Wink

Thank you for the reply, I will look into it this weekend. May I ask where you are able to find the compatibility in the wiki? The link below won’t load for me and I can’t seem to find a list of compatible USB modems elsewhere. I would like to check and see if other Verizon modems such as the 7730L, 730L or 8800L are already compatible so I could look into getting one of those instead. Thanks

Edit: Couldn't get this to work and ended up just using an old iphone 7 we had laying around and using iphone tethering which still works perfectly.
