Carbon X1 & Fibocom L850-GL - "No Service"

2018-09-20, 15:08 PM

I can't seem to establish a cell connection with my 6th gen Carbon X1 and new Fibocom L850-GL WWAN.  I'm using a Verizon SIM - all seems fine from the VZ side, and the machine is correctly recognizing the SIM, but I can't for the life of me get it to make a connection.  All I see is "No Service" from the Windows wifi manager, although the VZ "advanced options" confirm that there is an active account.  Anyone got any ideas on how to make this connect?  The Carbon X1 is fully updated and only recently imaged - latest drivers/firmware applied.

 

Thanks in advance for any help!!!

Got this resolved....  For whatever reason I didn't realize I needed to buy a separate antenna.  Only found it on eBay, but sure enough it worked.
