Just installed the Gobi 2000 WWAN (ATT) into a new x100e.
It is running Win7 Pro/ 64 Bits..
I installed the latest Access Connections, latest x100e Bios, and Gobi WWAN Drivers
from the Lenovo product support site- but the adapter is failing on startup.
Access connections begins to connect but then gives a red x by
"Powering on adapter"
When I use the FN+F5 hotkey to check it - I am unable to power on the adapter
manually (WLAN powers on/off perfectly)
What could be causing this problem?

OK -Just installed the latest BIOS, and all the recent power management updates.
The WWAN radio finally powers on- and I noticed the presentation of the FN-F5
menu has been changed with a "Master Control" switch-
which must be enabled before powering on the individual radios.
So it must have been some sort of power management/ x100e BIOS/ Gobi WWAN driver issue.
So far so good- but I am going to keep testing some more...
