It looks like I need a new 4g USB dongle, it is the only dongle I can find in the local market, will it work on Debian 11?

Not familiar with this specific item, so searched for Linux drivers ZTE MF833U1
the returns don't look good, it appears to be a problem across several distributions
Thank you Brickwizard, I think I will go for a stand alone wifi router that receives SIM card, so I have to deal only with the wifi on my laptop
