    Question Laptop missing Mobile Broadband option after Windows 10 update

    I have a Lenovo ThinkPad P50 which has a SIM card slot and up until a few months ago offered Mobile broadband connectivity options. These options disappeared after a major Windows 10 update (I think this was maybe around March 2018, but might have been before that). I can no longer find the option to enable the mobile broadband. I've re-downloaded the WWAN drivers from Lenovo and from Sierra wireless, and now I'm stuck for what to try next. Have tried putting a SIM card in to see if Windows will detect it, but it just appears to be no longer an option. I've seen a few posts elsewhere that make it seem like I'm not the only one with this problem, but I've seen no real solutions offered other than updating the drivers.

    What can I do to get my mobile broadband working again?

    Thanks,
    Mike.

    Is there a separate program that deals with the sim, on the Lenovo site?

    I'm not sure I understand what you're asking? I used to see an option for Mobile in the top of the network connection list (above the available wifi networks). It was windows that provided this, not a separate program. Lenovo offers drivers but I've not seen separate programs for it Thanks,Mike.

    I had an HP with a sim. It needed a separate program from the HP site so it could do anything.
