  • The PWR indicator turns on after connecting
  • Long-press the PWR button for 1, the NET LED turns on and became flashing after 10s. (If the NET indicator keeps solid, please check if the SIM card is workable)
  • Check the Device Manager of PC, the several COM ports will be recognized:

  • If the COM ports are recognized with an exclamation symbol, you should install the driver manually.
  • Connect the DONGLE to Windows PC (Hereafter we use Windows 10 PC as example))
  • Open Device Manager—>Other Devices—>“SimTech, Incorporated”—>Update driver—>Browse my compute for driver software—>Choose the driver according to your OS—>Install it
  • After installation, all the devices should be recognized normally as below:

FAQ

Question:
NET light does not flicker after startup of SIM7600X, what should I do if the network is abnormal?
Answer:
This situation may not be successfully connected to the network, you can follow the steps below:

Firstly, check the hardware connection, check whether the antenna is properly connected, and check whether the +SIM card can be used to make normal calls and surf the Internet in mobile phones and other devices: After checking the hardware connection, the software can use these instructions:

  • Check whether the SIM card is in good contact: AT+CPIN?
