Ah well that would explain the lack of option. The part that confuses
me is the PPP options. When I use libqmi raw by running "qmi-network
/dev/cdc-wdm0 start; ifup wwan0" it fires up my adapter via the
command line and connects to 4G LTE just fine as wwan0(no ppp). If I
use network manager applet it still connect however when I check
ifconfig it is showing up as ppp0. From my discussions with another

If you still see ppp0, that means that for some reason ModemManager
isn't correctly detecting the device and its ethernet interface.  Can
you run ModemManager with "--debug" and post the output for your device?


tech I believe that ppp creates some unneeded overhead for this type
of connection, and I'm not even sure if it's connecting via 4G when
done through ppp, or that it's even using the /dev/cdc-wdm0 device to
grab an IP. Am I missing something? Thanks for the help.

Japp, it should just work, with the latest ModemManager master version
and the latest Network Manager. You do not see any QMI options in the
menu, but it should work as it does without QMI.

I've been poking around the source of the latest Network Manager
source as I have a 4G LTE WWAN card that uses QMI to connect with.
From what I can tell it looks like Modem Manager and Network Manager
have been updated to support QMI, but when I compile and run
network-manager-applet (shows version 9.9.0) I'm not seeing any QMI
options. Has the applet not been updated yet? Any help would be
appreciated, thanks.
