    The one I had inside of my CF-30 worked fine, I only used the usb port for Bluetooth though. It showed up as it was suppose to.

    I have tried a wireless mouse dongle, thumb drive, and memory card reader. Nothing works.

    I'll attempt to contact maker.

    Thanks!

    Try to ground the gps in line to activate the usb port or look on bios under serial if gps is active/enable eventhough without the presence of gps module.

    This CF30 has OEM GPS, and OEM Bluetooth, both enabled, and working properly.

    The people at Custom-Toughbooks suggested a BIOS reset. I have done that, and no change.

    Also, just for a check, I booted into a live version of Linux, and used a wireless mouse dongle to test. The wireless mouse worked fine on both the native USB ports, as well as a PCMCIA <-> USB adapter.

    At this point I'm thinking somehow the USB connection on the WWAN sled is disabled somehow by the ToughBook itself, not by Windows or Linux.

    I'm curious to see two things.

    In Linux terminal do
    Code:
    lsusb
    ....and please post it. Should be less than ten lines. Cut and paste from terminal if possible. Like this...if folks are paying attention they will see this is at least a CF-31MK2. (the USB 3.0):)
    sev@se1-CF-30 ~ $ lsusb

    Bus 003 Device 001: ID 1d6b:0002 Linux Foundation 2.0 root hub

    The other one is
    Code:
    dmesg | grep input
    That will be a bit longer.

    Thanks

    Sure.

    Here is the lsusb when the wireless mouse dongle is plugged into the USB port next to the power port.

    Code:
    root@kali:~# lsusb
    Bus 006 Device 004: ID 0424:2503 Standard Microsystems Corp. USB 2.0 Hub

    Bus 001 Device 001: ID 1d6b:0001 Linux Foundation 1.1 root hub
    
    Here it is with the same wireless mouse dongle removed, and plugged into the internal WWAN USB Breakoutboard.

    Code:
    root@kali:~# lsusb
    Bus 006 Device 004: ID 0424:2503 Standard Microsystems Corp. USB 2.0 Hub
    Bus 006 Device 001: ID 1d6b:0002 Linux Foundation 2.0 root hub
    Bus 007 Device 001: ID 1d6b:0001 Linux Foundation 1.1 root hub
    Bus 004 Device 002: ID 044e:3001 Alps Electric Co., Ltd UGTZ4 Bluetooth
    Bus 004 Device 001: ID 1d6b:0001 Linux Foundation 1.1 root hub
    Bus 003 Device 002: ID 0430:0530 Sun Microsystems, Inc.

    Bus 001 Device 001: ID 1d6b:0001 Linux Foundation 1.1 root hub
    
    And here is the results from display message: *Note, Wireless mouse was plugged in during boot into the USB port next to the power port. When booting while plugged into USB Breakoutboard, no status messages regarding wireless mouse are present.

    Here is a simple idea.
    Is the flat cable going to the new board inserted fully and the proper direction?

    hmmm ...
    let me get this straight (in order to avoid error - ha !) ... and something to try in the process of elimination .
    you say that nothing works on the usb port you want to use ?
    have you tried using a dmm to check for the presence of +5VDC and/to ground ?
    ... the correct "pins" will be defined in the schematic ... these are not to be confused with the data +/- lines .

    i was working on the innards of a '52 dabbling with an infernal usb connector ... everything was working ok and then suddenly , things were not working ...
    yeppers ... popped a fuse that is about half as big as a small grain of rice .

    Breakout board, cabling, or fuse.

    Like Teo said the ground on the GPS IN would light up the GPS in bios.....but since you already have that.....hmmmm? It probably grounds through the break out board....where are you getting your 5v again? It wouldn't be on the same "circuit" as the GPS? Sorry, thinking out loud. Disregard.

    One interesting thing about the sled....I used a connection on the pcb in the sled one time to power a GPS (OEM type). It surprised me and worked in a CF-29 also...but whined that power was low....then worked anyway. Plug and play with the right cable. (The little one in the sled)

    You need one of my MK1 (CF-30) to play with. They're OEM GPS/Verizon WWAN (sled). Do you want to borrow one to experiment on?

    I hesitated to say but I'm older than I was yesterday so I don't get embarrassed...I set a cable in place one time in a hard drive one hole to the left. Lucky it didn't let the smoke out.

    Good luck.

    Jeff
