na flag

I did install ubuntu, everything except the broadband connection dont work. The same sim card worked on windows. So generally the hardware and sim cant be the problem.

If I try to enable I get the message: Cannot register modem: not yet enabled

Welcome to Ask Ubuntu. In order to help you, we would need some more information about your Ubuntu. Which version did you install? Could you open a terminal and execute `inxi -F`. Copy the output and put it into your **question** (not the comments)

Ok, it won't help you, but you're not alone. Check [this]( You will find more information if you copy this string `Intel Wi-Fi 6 AX201` in our searchbar above.

This is from your question. I did install ubuntu, everything except the broadband connection dont work. It is quite confusing I do not think this is what you wanted to say.

OK, the problem is as nobody says the fcc lock. To get the modem running you have to do the following:

sudo apt-get install libmbim-utils
sudo apt-get install libqmi-utils
sudo ln -sft /etc/ModemManager/fcc-unlock.d /usr/share/ModemManager/fcc-unlock.available.d/*

Most people don’t grasp that asking a lot of questions unlocks learning and improves interpersonal bonding. In Alison’s studies, for example, though people could accurately recall how many questions had been asked in their conversations, they didn’t intuit the link between questions and liking. Across four studies, in which participants were engaged in conversations themselves or read transcripts of others’ conversations, people tended not to realize that question asking would influence—or had influenced—the level of amity between the conversationalists.
