I have some trouble with the Forge SLM630B LTE module. When I connect this module in the PCIe port on the underside of the RK3399, it won't show up. I'm using the latest Linux Xubuntu build "Firefly-rk3399_xubuntu1604_201705111112". If I use the USB to PCIe adapter the modem shows up as Android, but it doesn't show up as /dev/ttyUSB(x), so we are not able to connect to it and dial up.
Do I need some additional firmware for the modem to work when it's plugged into the PCIe connector on the underside of the board? And do I need some drivers to be able to access the modem and dial up, both when using the USB adapter and using the PCIe port?

I have two boards. The one mentioned will not connect to the modem. The other one came shipped from factory with Ubuntu/Android dual-boot. The modem works fine on that one, but not on the one I've re-flashed with the latest Xubuntu release. I see that the factory one uses teh "Option" module, but I cannot find that in the re-flashed one. Do the kernel need to be re-compiled with this module?
