Ericsson N5321GW

Asked by Josip Sokcevic on 2013-10-19

Recently I bought Lenovo Thinkpad T431s 20AA. Specification says it has built in Ericsson N5321gw. However, it's not recognized nor listed in lsusb/lspci.

Is this a 3G modem?

What is the output of:

lsb_release -a; uname -a

Thanks

It is a 3G modem (accepts SIM card). I use archlinux, but I tried to boot newest ubuntu and the same thing happens.

lsb_release -a
No LSB modules are available.
Distributor ID: Ubuntu
Description: Ubuntu 13.10
Release: 13.10
Codename: saucy

uname -a
Linux ubuntu 3.11.0-12-generic #19-Ubuntu SMP Wed Oct 9 16:20:46 UTC 2013 x86_64 x86_64 x86_64 GNU/Linux

If you have the device out and run:

lsusb

Is there a line different? What line identifies the device?

Thanks

I can't do such thing as it's built in. However, I disabled it in BIOS and there is no difference between output of lsusb (as well as lspci).

Do you have the latest BIOS?

Josip Sokcevic (sokcevic) said : #6

I'm running 1.07, latest one is 1.09. Here's changelog:

<1.09>
 UEFI: 1.09 / ECP: 1.02
- (Fix) Fixed an issue where help message about Display and I/O Port Access menu
        in ThinkPad Setup was not correct.

<1.08>
 UEFI: 1.08 / ECP: 1.02
- (Fix) Fixed an issue that WMI for security chip did not work.
- (Fix) Fixed an issue that the system might fail to get IP from DHCP at PXE boot.

It doesn't seem relevant.

Ok, I'm an idiot. T431s is upgradeable to support WWAN, but doesn't support out of box. hurr durr
