I have 4G LTE/WCDMA/GSM cell service and want to add my laptop without having to use a dongle hotspot. I can use my cell as a hotspot, but the connection drains the phone's battery power very quickly.
I want to know which WWAN card can be used with my Studio 1737 that will allow me to connect to my carrier's 4G broadband service.
I've looked at Dell Wireless DW5804, E371 PCI-E 3G/4G, card specs. My laptop is not listed as compatible... However, I think there should be a modification that will allow the card to work in my laptop.
I hope someone can respond with a workable solution.
I am running W10, 64 bit OS.
If you have the onboard wireless card you cannot add a different card in the system. Dell has only tested the following cards in the system. There are no workable solutions to adding the card you are referring.
Dell Wireless 5720 - Sprint
Dell Wireless 5720 - Verizon
Dell Wireless 5530 - AT&T
Thank you for the information - I already knew that from searching the forums. My system has no card. None of those carriers are mine.
What I am trying to do is ADD broadband service, not switch out a card.
Thanks for your time.
