All about AT commands

AT commands are the instructions used to communicate directly with a modem or router. AT stands for ATtention that instructs the router about the start of a new command, that’s why every command starts with the word “AT”. For example, AT^SN, here SN is the actual command which is basically used to display the serial number of the router.

Let us have a look at the basic AT commands:-
AT^RESET: Restart your router
AT^SN: Display the serial number of the router
AT^NVRDEX=50503,0,128 : Retrieve Unlock Hash
AT^NVRDEX=50502,0,128 : Retrieve Datalock Hash
AT^VERSION? : Information about the version of the modem firmware
AT^HWVER? : information about the version of the modem hardware

Change Band Setting

AT^SYSCFGEX = “03”, 3FFFFFFF, 2,4, 40 ,, Example for only 2600 MHz Frequency
AT^SYSCFGEX = “03”, 3FFFFFFF, 2,4, 4 ,, Example for only 1800 MHz Frequency
AT^SYSCFGEX = “03”, 3FFFFFFF, 2,4, 80000 ,, Example for only 800 MHz frequency
AT^SYSCFGEX = “00”, 3FFFFFFF, 1,2,7FFFFFFFFFFFFF ,, Basic setting

Enable or disable Modes 3G/4G

AT^SYSCFGEX = “00” 3FFFFFFF, 2,4,7fffffffffffffff ,, ====== Auto.
AT^SYSCFGEX = “02”, 3fffffff, 2,4,7fffffffffffff ,, ====== 3G only.
AT^SYSCFGEX = “02”, 400000,2,4,7FFFFFFFFFFFFFFF ,, ====== 3G (2100 MHz)
AT^SYSCFGEX = “02”, 2000000000000,2,4,40 ,, ====== 3G (900 MHz)
AT^SYSCFGEX = “02”, 2000000400000,2,4,40 ,, ====== 3G (900/2100 MHz)
AT^SYSCFGEX = “03”, 3fffffff, 2,4,7ffffffffffffff ,, ====== Only 4G
AT^SYSCFGEX = “0302”, 3FFFFFFF, 1,2,7FFFFFFFFFFFFFFF ,, ====== 4G / 3G.

Check whether a router is locked or unlocked

Execute the below command after inserting Unsupported SIM in router

AT^CARDLOCK?
will give the output as CARDLOCK: A,B,0
Where:
A = 1 (Modem locked),
A = 2 (Modem unlocked)
A = 3 (Custom Lock)
B = The count of remaining attempts to enter unlock code.
Your modem might show ^CARDLOCK:1, X, 0, where X is any number from 0 to 10. If 0 then you can’t enter unlock code.

Check Datalock is enabled or disabled.
AT^DATALOCK?

If the output is 0, means disabled and if it is 1 then it is enabled

    • It means you cannot install any other firmware other than the operator firmware in it. If you try then the router will be dead.

  1. AT^CARDLOCK?
    AT^CARDLOCK?

    ^CARDLOCK: 2,10,0
    OK
    AT^DATALOCK?
    AT^DATALOCK?

    ^DATALOCK:1
    OK

    it means my device is unlocked & Data Lock is not? How can i unlock the data lock?(Because some sim card im unable to use)

  2. when i write AT^NVRDEX=50503,0,128 to take hash code in putty in say error

    i write code like this

    AT^NVRDEX=50503,0,128
    AT^NVRDEX=50503,0,128
    error
    how to show hash code
