3G Sunset – Required Cellular Firmware Update for 110g

AT&T Turned off their 3G network on Feb 22, 2022, and T-Mobile is turning off their 3G network on Jul 1, 2022. This change affects the Quectel modems on the 110g Airwall Gateway, and any AV3200g/u Airwall Gateways installed before Dec 12, 2021. If you are operating one of these Airwall Gateways using an AT&T or TMobile cellular connection, you should install new cellular firmware on them before the respective shutoff date.

Warning: To avoid disruptions in your AT&T or T-Mobile cellular service, you must update your cellular firmware on 110g Airwall Gateways before 2/22/22 (AT&T) or 07/01/22 (T-Mobile). If you do not, you will have to have an ethernet connection or perform on-site diagnostics for all impacted Airwall Gateways to restore reliable cell connectivity.
Attention: If you already updated Airwall Gateways that are using T-Mobile cellular – Install the latest (build 125) update to correct any issues.

Update your Cellular Firmware

  1. Check that your Conductor has the cellular firmware update, or download the "Hotfix for 3G Sunset Airwall Gateway 110" (filename is Airwall-110_cellfw-4c5753a-125_package) or Advantech 32xx (filename is Airwall-112_cellfw-4c5753a-125_package) from Hotfixes or Cellular modem firmware.
  2. If you downloaded the file, in the Conductor, upload the cellular firmware packages:
    1. Go to Settings > General Settings.
    2. Under Firmware updates, select Upload firmware.
    3. Select Choose file, and select the firmware package you downloaded.
    4. Select Upload.

  4. Select Airwall actions > Install Hotfix. These images show updating 110g Airwall Gateways.
