Re: Sierra Wireless MC7750 / MM 0.7.990 / NM 0.9.8

The PPP mode don't works after I upgrade firmware from 'SWI9600M_01.00.09.03AP' to 'SWI9600M_03.05.10.09AP'. The QMI problem is still there (Linux 3.9.3).

Yes, could very well be.  The "DHCP works, but cannot ping" sounds just
like the missing ethernet header problem.

They are currently in the v3.5 queue:;a=history;f=drivers/net/usb/qmi_wwan.c;hb=linux-3.5.y-queue

Doesn't look like they are in the v3.8 longterm queue just yet, but I
assume they will be.
