WWAN on x131e

#1 Post by dynaflux » Wed Jul 15, 2020 6:03 am

I have been using Thinkpads 1998 and have owned like 15 T-series. However I needed something lighter and bought a x131e and I use it for commuting. I upgraded to 8GB RAM and a SSD so it works pretty smooth. I also added a Ericsson H5321 gw WWAN card - but can't get it working in Windows 10. There is something wrong connecting to my operator and I'm sure it isn't a hardware issue as I'm also running Linux Mint where everything works fine. I get a connection, first "Checking account balance" and then "Disconnected".

I have tried pretty much everything:

- Updated BIOS
- Reseted BIOS
- Different settings in BIOS
- Reinstalled Windows 10 (more than once)
- New SIM-card
- Firmware update of the WWAN card
- Installed all appropriate drivers
- Added new APN manually
- Talked to the operator (who said I should restart the computer and take the SIM card out and wipe it of and then sent me a new SIM).

Any ideas? Should I opt for a new WWAN card - if so, which one?

As I said: everything works perfect in Linux and the SIM card works in my Samsung tablet.

Does the Ericsson H5321gw have any settings that you could change in the device manager? It seems to be a configuration problem, but I could be wrong.
