Enable mobile broadband

Introduction: Suggested actions to enable mobile broadband connections on MX

1. Make sure you have a device to connect to using:

dmesg |grep wwan

Which for me returns:

[ 4.253157] cdc_mbim 2-2:1.12 wwan0: register 'cdc_mbim' at usb-0000:00:14.0-2, CDC MBIM, 0e:e6:77:a6:bf:96[/code]

Here we have success where cdc_mbim has been discovered.
If the command returns nothing, see the end of this note for suggested troubleshooting steps.

2. RC the network tool and select edit connections

HELP: MX Debian Backports Installer

MX Debian Backports Installer 

---NOTE: This package is deprecated from MX-16.1 on, having been merged with MX Package Installer


Allows the user to browse and install packages from the Debian Backports Repository directly without the need to first enable the backports repository or without having to deal with the complex pinning system in use by Debian Backports.  The Backports repo will be enabled as needed and then disabled after the selected apps are installed.
