Hello and welcome

Are you sure the WWAN modem is installed in the laptop? What's the laptop' MTM code (starts with 20J)? If it's a CTO model (MTM includes CTO symbols), laptop' s/n is needed to determine factory specification. Don't share it here, send it to me via forum private messages service. I'll try to help.

WWAN requires 4 things to work:


1)  WWAN antenna installed

2)  WWAN card installed

3)  Drivers

4)  SIM card from your broadband carrier.
