Sad to hear this from you!
You did a great job.

May I ask your opinion on my issue with the pivot-overlay to miniSDHC in an USB-modem slot? Is it doable at all?
My goal is to run asterisk on Asus WL-330N3G with Huawei E3131 modem.

Thank you in advance.

Nice! smile

Could you please let me know were I can get the compiled asterisk18-dongle module ?
Thanks a lot for your help.

I tried many times to use the micro-sd slot of the dongle as a USB "overlay" but never found a way to do it, the sd slot is not recognized by OpenWRT.
Use a USB flash memory instead.

Will using an USD-hub help me? I need both the USB-modem and - apparently - the USB-flash connected.
Will extroot work this way?

Tried to use embeeded SDcard reader with my USB modem E173, mounted successfully.

/dev/sdd1               929.7M      1.2M    880.5M   0% /mnt/sdd1

Have not tried to move overlay to it tho - because I'm using separate USB flash disk for overlay.

If I do it manually - no problems either - to /mnt/sda1 or /overlay, but this is not an extroot yet...

pilovis,
I tried to reach you via e-mail.
Could you please help me to compile a ramips/rt305x version of the chan_dongle for asterisk v1.8?
(I'm on Asus WL-330N3G)

Thank you in advance.

i am looking for some help. i have been stuck from few weeks. i am trying to install asterisk any version with codec_g729 support.

Do You used it with an external powered USB hub, or with the built in ports?

It is possible then to use an android smart-phone as a sip client, for GSM voice calls?
It is possible to setup a phone number to be routed to the sip client?
(to accept and make calls from/to provider network...)

Thanks in advance.

it is better to use an external powered USB since each dongle needs more than 500 mA

yes, I would suggest you to use Zoiper or Csip (android sip clients)

I decided for an Asus RT-AC56, but I am not sure for the modems...
Can I succeed with Huawei E352s-2?  has voice enabled too, seems better for data. It will be recognized ?
Or E353-S2?

Or  better the E173s-2 ? As we already know that works...

The only dongle GSM I have tested with success is Huawey E169, I also tested E173 but with no success.
TP-Link TL-WDR3600 is a great router to use with OpenWRT, it has 2 USB ports, a lot of ram (128 Mbytes) and a fast 560 Mhz CPU.

Hi Pilovis!

I've installed the Asterisk 11 packages based on your tutorial on my asus router (AC56U), the Huawei dongle E169  is connected to the USB port  3.0.

Sms sending is working.
Voip calls are working between SIP clients.

From external calling the dongle I got a busy tone and on the logs I don't see anything

From sip client to external call (603/Declined - on the client), on the asterisk cli :

Any ideas with the busy issue?
Could be locked/disabled the Voice feature, even if the we see "Voice: Yes" on the dongle status?
The AT^CVOICE=?  -> responds:  AT^CVOICE:(0)  - OK
A DC-UNCLOCKER from windows says VOICE disabled.
I am confused a little smile.

I think your problem is here:

does "No Service" mean no connection?
Maybe.

My dongle shows this:

Submode                 : WCDMA

Also, your  RSSI (Radio Signal) is lower than mine, maybe it's a insufficient signal problem, try to move your dongle around to improve the signal.

eventually check the following guide, under "AT commands" section, the AT command instructions how to switch beetwen 3G and 2G network (use minicom serial console to give the commands to the dongle):

try this command under Asterisk cli:

you should see something like this:

at this point I really think that VOICE is disabled on your dongle sad

In my country all the E169 dongles from Wind IT and TIM IT I used, have Voice Enabled feature by default, check on Google about your dongle.

I suppose there is no alternative than follow DC-UNCLOCKER guide to enable Voice on your dongle or buy another one that has the "Voice enable" feature guaranteed.

Thanks for help! I have succeded after i`ve unlocked with dc-unlocker smile .
Calls in both directions are working.
The remote side hear my voice not 100% clean... but is acceptable, I will study the issue.
I've included Your modules optimizations.

Best Regards.

To improve audio quality on chan_dogle you may set up your modem to use only 3G (WCDMA) network

Commands to block modem to 3G mode:
asterisk -r (to get to asterisk console)

dongle cmd dongle0 AT^SYSCFG=14,2,3FFFFFFF,2,4

instead to block modem to 2G:
dongle cmd dongle0 AT^SYSCFG=13,1,3FFFFFFF,2,4

to disable call-waiting:
dongle cmd dongle0 AT+CCWA=0,0,1

In case of dongle memory full of SMS, to clear all SMS from dongle memory:
dongle cmd name_dongle AT+CPMS=\"SM\",\"SM\",\"SM\"
dongle cmd name_dongle AT+CMGD=1,4

to clear all SMS from SIM memory:
dongle cmd name_dongle AT+CPMS=\"ME\",\"ME\",\"ME\"
dongle cmd name_dongle AT+CMGD=1,4

[HOW-TO] Send an email and restart Asterisk when a SIP trunk gets disconnected.

0) prerequisites: asterisk and mini-sendmail (no_auth SMTP server required)


1) create and edit the script:

touch /root/check-sip.sh

vi /root/check-sip.sh

#!/bin/bash
# check SIP trunk for Asterisk/OpenWRT, send an email and restart Asterisk when a SIP trunk gets disconnected
# don't forget to create a crontab to lauch this script every xx minutes
# by pilovis - parknat12@yahoo.com
#
## check for sip trunk status
checkifok=`/usr/sbin/asterisk -rx "sip show peer
xxxxxxxx" | grep Status | grep -wc OK`
## if trunk is not connected
if [[ $checkifok == 0 ]]; then
## send an email
/bin/echo "SIP Trunk
xxxxxx not registered" | /usr/sbin/mini_sendmail -fsender@mail.com -smailer-smtp.com -p25 receiver@mail.com
## then wait for 3 seconds
/bin/sleep 3
## and restarts Asterisk
/usr/sbin/asterisk -rx "sip reload"
## if trunk is OK do nothing
else
/bin/echo "Trunk OK" > /dev/null 2>&1
fi
#eof

Notes:
"/bin/echo "SIP Trunk xxxxxx not registered" | /usr/sbin/mini_sendmail -fsender@mail.com -smailer-smtp.com -p25 receiver@mail.com" is a single line!
change peer name 'xxxxxxxx' with your outbound trunk peer name as specified in /etc/asterisk/sip.conf


2) give the right permissions to the script:

chmod 755 check-sip.sh


3) create a contab to run the script every 5 minutes:

vi /etc/crontabs/root

*/5 * * * * /bin/sh /root/check-sip.sh


4) reboot to apply.

----------------------------------------------------

If you want to use "msmtp" to be able to use your Google account and SMTP Google server,
this is the line to be used to send an email:

/bin/echo "SIP Trunk xxxxxx not registered" | /usr/bin/msmtp receiver@mail.com


you also need to edit "/etc/msmtprc" with your gmail credentials,
delete everything inside the file and put the following;

account default
host smtp.gmail.com
port 587
auth on
user youraccount@gmail.com
password yourpassword
auto_from off
from youraccount@gmail.com
tls on
tls_starttls on
tls_certcheck off
logfile
syslog LOG_MAIL

Note: change "youraccount@gmail.com" and "yourpassword" with your Gmail credentials.


To install msmtp:

opkg update
opkg install msmtp

this is my last (mad) creation:

OpenWRT Home Automation BOX

Features:

- 2 digital input channels (to get feedback from remote devices)
- 7 power output channels 1500 W max each (to switch ON and OFF remote devices)
- PBX Voip/GSM server (Asterisk 11 + GSM_dongle)
- remote control by phone by using DTMF tones (I created an IVR that says: "press 1 to switch on relay 1, etc")
- HD video streaming to monitor remote location (MJPG-streamer)
- 2 ways (listen/talk) remote audio streaming by phone (Baresip)
- 2 ways SMS server (receive commands and/or send back alerts/notifications) (Gnokii)
- remote/local control by web page (PHP + uhttpd)
- local control by USB keypad (Triggerhappy)
- restore the channels status after a power failure/reboot (restore the last status ON/OFF just before the power loss)

Maximum power consumption = 15W, one single power supply 12v/2.5A (I keept the original netgear PS)
This BOX can be powered by solar cells and/or by a 12V rechargeable lead battery
To save some electrical power and heating, I removed the (useless) WiFi PCI internal card because it is not supported by Barrier Breaker sad , maybe Chaos Calmer supports it, but C.C. sucks, it is almost useless since there are to many packages missing, included most of the packages I used for this BOX mad

Notes: by having a GSM dongle (GSM calls and SMS), this box can work anywere, even in a place without any internet connection.


I used (cost):

many sleepless nights (almost free)
Openwrt Barrier Breaker (free)
Netgear DGND3700V1 router (Ebay @ 50 Euro)
USB HD webcam (local store @ 30 Euro)

Netgear DGND3700V1 has 11 LEDs of wich 9 of them can be used to control 9 relays, fortunately these 9 LEDs do not turn on or do not start blinking during startup process smile

The downside of this router is that the internal PCI WiFi module is bad supported on OpenWRT, as a workaround you can use a different WiFI PCI board or connect an external USB WiFi dongle to the router (or use an ethernet cable).

This router is very powerful: it has 2x400 Mhz CPUs, 2xUSB2 ports, 2 integrated Switch buttons (plus reset) both usable directly by triggerhappy, 1 WAN and 4 LAN Gigabit ethernet connectors, 128 Mbytes of RAM and 32 Mbytes of Flash.

Here are the commands to switch ON the 9 LEDs (to switch them off use "echo 0 > ..."):

/bin/echo 1 > /sys/devices/platform/leds-gpio.0/leds/DGND3700v1_3800B:blue:wifi5g/brightness
/bin/echo 1 > /sys/devices/platform/leds-gpio.0/leds/DGND3700v1_3800B:green:dsl/brightness

/bin/echo 1 > /sys/devices/platform/leds-gpio.0/leds/DGND3700v1_3800B:green:usb-front/brightness
/bin/echo 1 > /sys/devices/platform/leds-gpio.0/leds/DGND3700v1_3800B:green:wifi2g/brightness
/bin/echo 1 > /sys/devices/platform/leds-gpio.0/leds/DGND3700v1_3800B:green:wps/brightness
/bin/echo 1 > /sys/devices/platform/leds-gpio.0/leds/DGND3700v1_3800B:red:inet/brightness
/bin/echo 1 > /sys/devices/platform/leds-gpio.0/leds/DGND3700v1_3800B:green:lan/brightness

Important note on Netgear DGND3700V1 and Barrier Breaker.

This router with its custom OpenWRT Barrier Breaker firmware has a very bad problem: during a reboot, invoked by a program or by the reboot command,  the router may hangs forever, unfortunately it happens quite often and the only way to recover it, it is to do a power cycle.
The problem occurs during the shutdown process, just before the reboot, it seems that some process cannot be stopped correctly.

To avoid this problem during reboot cycle, you might use the following command to do an hard_reboot of the router:

/bin/echo b > /proc/sysrq-trigger

this  is pretty much the same as pressing the reset button on a PC, no daemons will be shut down gracefully, no filesystem sync will occur (but we don't need it).

So, don't use anymore the "reboot" command (busybox) on this router, also disable watchcat and zram: 
/etc/init.d/watchcat disable
/etc/init.d/zram disable
