How to figure out mobile broadband device is embedded in the machine or plugged-in as a USB device. RRS feed

  • General discussion

  • I am trying to know the device type through pragmatically whether the device type of mobile broadband is embedded or external.

    when i issue an netsh command it telling the device type like in the below example.

    netsh mbn>show interfaces

    There is 1 interface on the system:

    Name               : Mobile Broadband Connection 3
    Description        : HUAWEI Mobile Connect - 3G Network Card
    GUID               : {0395B9DD-9200-4B14-89A4-DEFD11FC0933}
    Physical Address   : 00:1e:10:1f:1f:81
    State              : Not connected
    Device type        : Mobile Broadband device is removable
    Cellular class     : GSM
    Device Id          : 359740020188874
    Manufacturer       : huawei

    Provider Name      : Vodafone
    Roaming            : Not roaming
    Signal             : 87%

    but when i check with WWAN SDK, i didn't find the API to get the device type.

    Please help in solving this issue.
