S540 Mobile Broadband

2016-03-02, 7:10 AM

Hello,

 

I inserted 4G SIM into sim card slot in my new S540 notebook and after booting up OS I cant find mobile broadband modem anywhere. Notebook behaves like there is no SIM inserted at all.

 

My question is: Does this notebook have 4G modem in stock or do I have to buy it and if it is in stock then how can I activate/install it?

 

Thank you in advance for your reply.

Hi

Welcome to the forums.

 

Can you please post the full model number of your Thinkpad? Maybe we can check if the machine cames with a 4G modem or not.

 

I used to have a Thinkpad L420 that only came with the 4G SIM slot, but internally it did not have a card. Maybe with the model number we can check the specifications, or even the Maintenance Manual to open it up and check if the 4G card is installed.

Hello,

 

thank you for your reply. We called Technical support for our region and they told us that our ThinkPad only has SIM slot but no 4G modem.

 

Thank you for your time
