How to Restart SIM800L module when there is no signal

sim800l

#1

Hello!

I’m using an Arduino Nano with the SIM800L.
works fine.
I’m allowed to send SMS, and it sends SMS back.

My Problem:
Everything works fine, but when the modul has a bad signal (when it blinks fast), there is no chance to get a Signal again.

So i will need a Command, which resets the SIM800L modul, if it has a bad signal.

Thanks,
Bernhard

Hi Bernhard,

To check network status you can use AT+CREG? command.

And, You can use command like AT+CFUN=0 and then AT+CFUN=1 to put module in flight mode and again back to normal mode. This would simulate a network reboot.

Otherwise you can use the RESET pin present on the module to restart it.

Ravi

Hello RaviPujar.

The same thing happens to me as teufber.
I am using the SIM800L for ppp in a Raspberry pi 3, but when the signal is lost for long periods the modem can not reconnect.
I do not know if the problem is at the ppp level or if the modem has frozen. The only solution is a reset?
The ppp connection attempt indicates: serial link appears to be disconnected.

Thank you.
