    How to Detect USB External Modem

    Yes, that's correct. I suggested you to do that becasue I didn't see it in the screenshot you shared in a previous post and thought that might be the cause. You might try that.

    How to Detect USB External Modem

    Yes, thanks @Vrai for pointing that out. Sometimes I forget some people may not be familiar with some Linux related terms such as "comment/uncomment" some text in a file, usually this means removing/deleting the # symbol at the beginning of a line. In your case @Vicktoria it means...

    "RTFM"

    She did ask me to replace W10 on her laptop with Linux, only I thought it was a BIOS-LEGACY system and when installing I chose the partition where windows was installed not the one used for backups, just to learn after that both were actually erased and data was gone, apparently that's a UEFI...

    "RTFM"

    I deleted my wife's laptop HDD which had W10 when was installing MX on it because I'd no idea it was a UEFI system and never dealt with that before. Thing's the HDD had two partitions, one being the backup and apparently in a UEFI system deleting one gets the full disk erased, which it did...

    You're welcome! Too bad you haven't being able to solve your issue. I've only used a ppp device once and luckily for me it worked OOTB, so my experience in such procedures is none, all I can offer is paste some links I may find to articles hoping they can help you, like this one...
