I've got a new Dell Latitude e7440, and a Dell Wireless 5570 HSPA+ mobile broadband card. I cannot get the broadband card to work.

I can see the card:

# lshw
  ....
  *-network DISABLED
       description: Ethernet interface
       physical id: 1
       logical name: wwan0
       serial: 46:51:4c:75:9d:ad
       capabilities: ethernet physical
       configuration: broadcast=yes driver=cdc_mbim driverversion=22-Aug-2005 firmware=CDC MBIM link=no multicast=yes

And I can get rid of the DISABLED text:

# ifconfig wwan0 up
# ifconfig wwan0
wwan0     Link encap:Ethernet  HWaddr 46:51:4c:75:9d:ad

# lshw

  *-network
       description: Ethernet interface
       physical id: 3
       logical name: wwan0
       serial: 46:51:4c:75:9d:ad
       capabilities: ethernet physical
       configuration: broadcast=yes driver=cdc_mbim driverversion=22-Aug-2005 firmware=CDC MBIM link=yes multicast=yes

But I cannot use the card in any way.

  • There's no /dev/ttyUSBx to which I could input AT commands.
  • I cannot see a mobile broadband connection in the Network manager.
  • tools like mbim-network simply say the connection to the modem failed

My Dell BIOS version is A10, and from BIOS I can see the card. It's enabled and from that perspective there shouldn't be anything wrong with it. If I need to debug the driver, I'm willing to give that a try but I need some pointers on where to start. Any help is much appreciated.

Below is a list of debug output. Please ask for more in the comments if you think of anything that's helpful.

Here's my Linux version. I'm running a modified kernel due to a multiheading docking station problem, but this modem issue occurs identically on the 3.13 kernel which was the default when I installed Ubuntu 14.04.

# uname -a
Linux slartibartfast 3.15.0-rc8+ #5 SMP Mon Jul 21 14:18:58 EEST 2014 x86_64 x86_64 x86_64 GNU/Linux

Using libqmi and qmicli, I get some interaction with the modem, but still some fairly confusing error messages. I have not yet had time to look into this further.

I can also set my PIN code with qmcli:

# qmicli --dms-uim-verify-pin=PIN,xxxx -d /dev/cdc-wdm0
[/dev/cdc-wdm0] PIN verified successfully

And get some information:

Regarding @aleksander's question in the comments of his answer, here's the error when using the apn:

  • See my answer here to understand what's happening here. As Aleksander states below, you're missing half the interface. If your using an ISP, you need to authenticate with them. – eyoung100 Nov 18 '14 at 17:18

Dell branded Sierra Wireless modems, like the 5570 (bought one myself now) need a magic "DMS Set FCC Auth" command to recover from low-power mode, better explained here: https://sigquit.wordpress.com/2015/02/09/dell-branded-sierra-wireless-3g4g-modem-not-online/

If you're using ModemManager, you can try to compile your one libqmi and ModemManager from git to get this fixed.

    Just released libqmi 1.12.4 and ModemManager 1.4.4 with these fixes; time to poke your distro to get them integrated :) – Aleksander Feb 10 '15 at 17:35

You're lacking the APN in the --wds-start-network option. You wouldn't need it if you were in a CDMA/EVDO network, but it is (usually) required an explicit one in GSM/UMTS/LTE.

Once QMI WDS Start Network returns with no error, just try to run dhclient in the WWAN interface.

  • I've tried it with my providers apn, which is internet. Produces the same error. The card works fine in my phone with both no APN and the APN I just mentioned above. I'll give it a new try and post some more comments. – msvalkon Nov 18 '14 at 20:12
  • Yeah confirming that I'm getting the same error as before, even after first setting my pin code and then attempting to start the network. – msvalkon Nov 18 '14 at 21:25
  • Is it really the "generic-no-service" call end reason, even when you use the APN? – Aleksander Nov 19 '14 at 10:04
  • I've edited the exact error message to the question now, at the end. It is the generic-no-service. – msvalkon Nov 19 '14 at 11:32
