• HP LT4211 Mobile Broadband Card Configuration


    I need some help getting the above referenced mobile broadband card running properly. I did an exhaustive write up of my troubleshooting to date over at fedoraforum.org, and it can be found here, please give it a read. I’ve switched from Fedora to Antergos about a month ago, and got no measurably better result. I’d rather deal with this in Antergos as I have a better chance of getting a code update prior to rapture.

    I’ve also read this page. Though it was a bit hard to follow and I’m not sure it really applies. I’m afraid I may have gone down a rabbit hole with no solution at the bottom. It refers to the card in its example as being an “old card” and this one is very much not that. It’s a new card in the m.2 form factor for an HP Elitebook Folio 9480m.

    I’d love some help with this in the form of a walk-through ideally, but I’d settle for a simple nudge in a positive direction.

    If you would like new logging or commands run to verify any settings/configuration I’m more than willing.

    Thank you collectively for your time.

    If everything fails no matter what you try, an alternative is buying an USB Wireless Adapter, they usually work fine(just avoid the cheaper ones). If you need a 5 ghz connection, get a good ac wifi adapter, if your router is 2.4 ghz a b/g/n or n wifi adapter will work. Usually they are plug and play on linux, no installation needed in most cases.

  • @ssspacez You’re talking 802.11x wi-fi. This post is in regards to a 4gLTE mobile broadband card.

  • Oh, I see, I’ve never used one of those, did you try on any Ubuntu based distros? They usually have a very good hardware support and almost everything works. Maybe you can burn an iso and use the live media to test if it works there, I think if it doesn’t work with Ubuntu either… probably it will be hard to make it work on any other distro. I can’t help you, sorry, let’s see if anyone knows how to solve this, I whish you luck.

  • @ssspacez Yeah, been there and done that. I’ve been living in Ubuntu for a couple years and when they killed Unity and went to stock gnome, I determined there was no reason to not try out some others. Ubuntu had this issue, as did Fedora, as does Antergos.

  • Maybe there’s no support for Linux:

    Manual page:
    “NOTE:
    Works with Windows 7, Windows 8, Windows 8.1 and Windows 10”

    But some people are saying that they managed to make it work, check this thread https://askubuntu.com/questions/603457/hp-lt4112-lte-hspa-gobi-4g-modem-huawei-me906e-qmi-not-working-14-04#603531
