Hi, thanks for the info. I just need network connectivity, so I guess the Huawei dongles would work ok.In any case, if I understood correctly, the benefit of a QMI/MBIM dongle is that they would just work on Linux, is that right? In that case, I would definitely prefer to get one of those but I have no idea on how to check that. Again, any suggestions are appreciated.
Thanks, Henrique.
