  • Hi avhariprasath,

                   The only way to get the WWAN for this laptop is to get an external usb adapter as there are no other options after the laptop is configured . You Will not be able to use the WWAN as the backcover in your laptop is pre-configured for WLAN .

  • Hi avhariprasath,

    Welcome to the community

    The system was shipped with a N6230 WLAN card which is a WIFI and Bluetooth card. If the system has a WWAN card then we can use the SIM lot. As the system does not have a WWAN card pre shipped from factory, we cannot use that.

  • Hi avhariprasath,

    Welcome to the community

    • WWAN card is for using internet using SIM card while you are on the go (travelling), mostly people who travel a lot configure it.
    • Dell offers WWAN as the point of sale, you have to select that option while you are configuring the computer.
    • Also to confirm about your system specifications, I would request you to send me a private message. By clicking on my username, add me as a friend and send me your service tag and Phone number .
