What card is on the unit. I'm not the WWAN guy but this could be as simple as a dipswitch. My MK-5 and MK=1 / 2 CF-30 run 5725 cards I believe.

Glad to hear you got the CF-29 squared away. Good job!

It "may" be possible but you would have to use a WWAN to USB adapter. Then do a internal usb mod. I have tested the adapter and loaded a driver or two on a few things but not the newest cards. I know it wouldn't let the pc see any regular wi-fi cards I tried, but every WWAN card was recognized the first time. This also should get around any bios whitelist any pc may have. I plan on testing other cards in it more later on.

I got mine off of ebay, but you get the idea.
