I forgot to mention that you would only need to

config sys modem
if the modem parameters were not already known to the FGT (which is not the case with your D-link). In any case you'd have more control over all parameters by using these options.

Hi, 

I Hope help you:

 

http://docs.fortinet.com/uploaded/files/2440/fortigate-modem-compatibility-matrix.pdf

 

If doesn't appear, you can configure a personal modem.

 

best regards!

This is Some Great Info.

I am using a Huawei E8372 LTE (hi-Link/usb-switch) modem and not serial.

The Modem works out of the box in a 60D,80D and 90D .

All i have to do is

config sys lte-modem

set status en

 

however the same command does not work in a 100D or a 600D running the same code 5.4

From the 90D

any ideas what it could be that the stick works in small Fortigates and not in the larger Fortigate all running the same code. ths only thing i can notice is that both devices use a different CDC Ethernet driver. CDCETHER vs cdc_ether.

Hi,

 

Did you get anywhere with this - we see similar output on an 80E.

Hi,  I have the same question but I want to know the configuration of the 4Gx modem with FortiWifi 40C. 

It will be the same as for 3G/4G modem or change...

Any news about a USB key MODEM for Fortigate ?
