I’m looking for a wwan modem for my laptop.
i am not an expert in this field and have no idea what makes a good wwan modem and what are signs of garbage quality, hopefully somebody here can lead me to a good product.
my only requirements are:
- fits in the wwan slot of my Dell Precision M6800. (its just Mini PCIe afaik.)
- must be compatible with T-Mobile’s LTE service in the US.
*must work with Debian GNU/Linux 10 (Buster). i can install drivers and compile my kernel if needed.
i have already tried the Dell Wireless dw5808, which works fine, but isn’t compatible with T-Mobile’s LTE service, only 3g.
i have also tried the Sierra Wireless MC7455, which reportedly is compatible with T-Mobile, but it is not compatible with Debian 10, at least not on Linux 5.2 or 4.19.
