OnePlus 8
Hi,,

I would like to use my OnePlus 8 in USB tethered mode as an LTE device for my Mikrotik hAP ac lite router.

When I connect the two, OnePlus indicates that it is charging and even though I adjust that to USB tethering the Mikrotik never detects the modem.

I tried the same setup only replacing the phone with a Samsung S8 and the connection worked as expected.

Has anyone else experienced the same behaviour and has anyone else manage to find a solution?

Thanks

try using a router that uses recent version of OpenWRT and it should work, i got it to work on my openwrt router but not on my asus router. however my asus router worked fine with my older phone. Asus router needs firmware devs to fix the issue
