    @ajeh: I simply asked that pictures not be used and did not push after learning it was unfeasible for op to do so. How could I have a grudge against a new user? I think you are clearly reading way to much into a simple comment. One that should always be made when images are placed into questions. – jesse_b Jun 7 '18 at 21:48

run these commands to ON wan and connect your broadband.

  nmcli -t nm wwan on
  nmcli -t con up id <Your Mobile Broadband Connection Name Here>

To check the status of your connection

  nmcli -p dev


  nmcli device wifi con "ssid" password "<password>"

else try with nmtui

yum install NetworkManager-tui
