Windows 8.1 and mobile broadband

I have upgraded to Windows 8.1 on my X1 Carbon, and it does not detect mobile broadband - the "Networks" pane now shows only the switch for Airplane mode on/off and a list of available WiFi networks, where previously it showed a list of available networks (when outside my home  country) or "Macheen" when at home. Driver issue?  This is make or break for me, as mobile broadband is my lifeblood.

Thanks

Re: Windows 8.1 and mobile broadband

After updating my X1C to Windows 8.1 I can tell you that at least once I've seen the mobile broadband option with the Vodafone logo on the connections, but it is no longer listed. Even if I go to "Turn wireless devices on or off" it only shows the Wifi control, no bluetooth or mobile broadband.

 

Will add this issue to my own thread of issues with the 8.1 update on my X1C...
