Linux drivers for Wireless controller: Intel Corporation XMM7360 LTE Advanced Modem

2020-05-19, 19:39 PM

As Linux user (Ubuntu 20.04 LTS) I would like to use the LTE PCI modem on my new X1 Yoga 4th gen. I did not found any working workaround.

Please see related requests:

I wasn't able to get this code to work, it loads the kernel module but for whatever reason I'm not able to establish a connection to my carrier.

I have this problem too.

 

It would be nice if Lenovo did something about it.

Honestly, I like the X1 C7.
That being said, it's not understandable that a laptop that runs well into 2500€ lacks driver support for Linux.
There are three possible things that Lenovo can do to make this right by their clients:
1 - Firmware upgrade so we can toggle the card into USB mode, for which drivers exist

2 - Pressure Intel into actually releasing a driver for this

3 - Replace the card, free of charge, to the clients that have it still under warranty to a card that is supported natively on Linux.

 

If this does not get a fix, I will be out of a couple hundred euros that were paid for a LTE card that is basically just taking up space. And if that is the case, this is the first and last time I buy any product from Lenovo, which is a shame, because so far I'm really impressed with the rest of the hardware. But this is simply too big of a flaw to give Lenovo some slack.
