That is usually done via the Connection Manger software supplied by an ISP.  I have no idea what is supplied with a 7667-CTO, but the Sierra Wireless generic Connection Manager (on the Sierra web site) might work.

Cheers,

Access Conections (FnF5) has support for the WWAN card and has worked for me without any extra software.  I just create a new WWAN type profile and enter the correct Access Point Name (APN) if it isn't already on the SIM.  I can't say whether this will work for your ISP though.

The 7666-A26 does not have a WWAN card, unless you added one.
USB-C: Just cos it fits don't mean it works.

Yes, AFAIK all X61's and x61s's have a SIM card holder on the motherboard, but unless you added it, you do not have a PCIe WWAN mini card, which lives under the right side of the palm rest. The X61s model you have does not come pre-configured with a WWAN card.
