Verizon UML295 Cellular Modem¶
These are the configuration instructions for the Verizon UML295 USB Modem.
Connect the device to a computer to do the initial setup and remove the initial SIM PIN.
Test the connection from the computer to ensure 4G connectivity.
Once the connection is active, remove from computer and plug in to your pfSense device. You may need to reboot pfSense if the device does not register.
There should be no PPP configuration necessary for this device in pfSense. It should register as a USB-to-Ethernet device in your interface list.
Assign UE0 as a DHCP interface, and it should show an IP in the 192.168.32.0/24 subnet which should be accessible from your LAN after configuring necessary rules.
You can configure that interface gateway as a Failover and test by unplugging/disabling your WAN connection. Ensure you have DNS configured correctly and the device should function properly.
